Camera NX brings Pixel camera features to older Nexus phones

Hanging on to an older Google phone? Try this updated Google Camera with features such as Portrait mode

While the latest Pixel phones are great, those who are still hanging on to their older models as well as phones such as the LG Nexus 5X can try the Camera NX for some photo fun.

Better photos, older phones

What Camera NX offers is a tweaked Google Camera app that breathes fresh life into the cameras on the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.

The feature most requested by users of the APK was Portrait mode and the good news is that it delivers. Now of course, it doesn’t work exactly the way the Pixel 2’s app does. Instead It relies on taking a burst of photos to create that blurred background, depth of field look.

Only one weakness though: portrait mode only seems to activate when there’s a human face and it might not work with inanimate subjects.

You can sideload the APK from this link if you're keen to give it a try.
