Google Camera NX Brings New Important Features for Nexus 5X & Nexus 6P

We’ve seen many devices that unofficially use the Camera HDR+ from Google, and how it’s an improvement in image quality. Now don’t believe that Google Camera was launched with the Google Pixel, as it was already around for Nexus 5 that launched in 2013.

There was a change however, when Pixel had a mode called Zero Shutter Lag – ZSL – that addressed the main concern of the HDR+, which was the speed. So, with this mode, users were able to take photographs faster, without the UI freezing and was also better at taking photographs of subjects that were in a fast motion.

But this mode wasn’t available to the Nexus phones that were released in 2015 –  Nexus 6P & Nexus 5X, even though they had Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 SoCs to easily process it. Instead, Google made it available to the first generation of Pixel smartphones. Last year Google Camera NX was released to bring all the Google Pixel features – and the ZSL mode – to Nexus 6P & Nexus 5X.

Motion Photos and Face Retouching are Now on Nexus 6P & Nexus 5X

Now we see a new update for the Google Camera NX mod, reaching version 7, and bringing more features from Google Pixel 2 to the 2015 Nexus devices.

There are other features available on the Google’s Camera app that will control HDR+, warn users of dirty lens and will capture RAW on the ZSL version. The 2015 Nexus devices will also have Motion Photos and Face Retouching available. You can use Google Camera NX V7 in both mods: with or without ZSL, each behaving differently.

What won’t work in the Google Camera NX V7 on Nexus devices and the first generation of Pixel devices, is the Portrait Mode, as they lack the required hardware – and depth mapping is missing. Similar to this issue, AR mode is unavailable too.
