You can now easily download Google Camera for Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ phones – Snapdragon and Exynos variants. Not an official release, but a Google Camera APK port called GCam by BSG MOD is now available for the Samsung phones. GCam ports are very popular among technology enthusiasts who do not have Google Pixel phones, but want to use and enjoy the computational photography features the Google Camera app brings to the Pixel phones lineup.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 features one of the most powerful smartphone cameras of 2019. It is a Samsung flagship and has a very powerful camera app with tons of software processing done for better shots. However, Google’s Camera app from the Pixel series is still a favourite among tech and photography enthusiasts. This is particularly because these GCam mods are able to bring the same machine learning algorithms and computational photography features as the Google Pixel 4 to other Android phones.
