Install Google HDR+ Camera on Galaxy S9/S9+ or Any Android!

For those of you who want to get Google HDR+ camera on your Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus or any Android smartphone(should work on most), now you can do it using XDA user KisaKuKu’s port.   While many other ports have not worked with latest Samsung S9/S9 Plus, this latest version works great and as you can see in the video, you can get nearly identical or better performance as Pixel 2 camera by using Google HDR+ camera.  I have also tested on other devices like LG G6 and LG V20, both of which also work really well with this version of Google HDR+ camera and improves your photos by a mile.

Devices confirmed working 100%:

  • Galaxy S9 & S9 Plus Exynos (Snapdragon seems to have trouble although unlocked U.S. model users have said it is working fine.)
  • Galaxy Note 8 Exynos & Snapdragon – Grab this one instead as it also comes with Portrait Mode.
  • Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus Exynos & Snapdragon – Grab this one instead as it also comes with Portrait Mode.
  • Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Exynos & Snapdragon – Grab this one instead as it also comes with Portrait Mode.
  • Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Exynos & Snapdragon – Grab this one instead as it also comes with Portrait Mode.
  • Galaxy Note 5 – Grab this one instead as it also comes with Portrait Mode.
  • LG V30, LG V20, LG G6
  • OnePlus 5T – Some people are saying it works flawless and some are saying a little laggy.

Devices not working:

  • Galaxy S9/S9 Plus Snapdragon
  • LG G3
  • C9 Pro
  • Moto G Plus
  • OnePlus One
  • Huawei P20 Pro, probably not compatible w/ any Huawei devices running Kirin processor as that processor is much different from Snapdragon/Exynos.

Installation is easy, just download the APK and install.  After installing, MAKE SURE to change “Config camera HDR+” to “Nexus 6 HDR+ Auto” otherwise you will not be able to get it working correctly.

    GOOGLE HDR + CAMERA works well with my Oneplus 3 (running LineageOS 15.1). But HDR works only after I changed the app settings “Config camera HDR+” to “Nexus HDR+ Audio”
