Poco X6 Neo GCam Port – Google Camera APK

We have got a working GCam port for Poco X6 Neo phone which was recently launched. This is a mid ranger phone with decent hardware spec with Dimensity 6100+ chipset.

It comes with a dual camera setup, with a primary wide camera of 108MP, and a 2MP macro sensor. The stock camera captures decent photos but not like this Poco X6 Neo GCam port.

In this article you will find the best working gcam port for Poco X6 Neo including xml or agc config files if anything is available.

Stock Poco Camera vs GCam on Poco X6 Neo

The default Poco camera that comes on your phone and the Google Camera port has significant differences! Here I have captured all the similarities and/or differences between these two camera apps in my list so that you can take a wise decision to use which camera app on what kind of lighting and scenic conditions.

Let’s have a look at the below detailed section so that you can understand things in a better way.

What’s better on the Poco camera?

Well, the default camera app that comes on the phone is equally good and provides several features that the GCam does not have.

Just to tell you, the Poco camera is more or less similar as the MI camera.

Let’s have a look at the below features that is available on Poco X6 Neo’s default Camera but not on GCam:

  • Pro mode that provides TRUE pro level features such as focus peaking, LOG profile, Exposure verification etc.
  • The 960 fps super slow motion
  • Access to all camera sensors
  • Voice shutter (only available on latest Poco Camera app)
  • Allows to capture in 64MP

Advantages on Google camera / GCam on Poco X6 Neo

People know the GCam app several years from now since when it had the HDR+. And then the camera app has evolved significantly.

Below are some of the extra features that you can expect to enhance your existing camera setup on the Poco X6 Neo:

  • Night Sight mode that gets you better exposed images in low light.
  • Astrophotography mode used to capture the sky and celestial bodies in the dark. Not for everyone, but worth mentioning in this features list.
  • Multi-mode video stabilization
  • HDR+ captures a natural looking image in a condition where you have much brighter or darker regions in the scene.
  • DSLR like bokeh effect in the portrait mode.
  • RAW image capture so that it can be edited in the post

Disadvantages of GCam

  • Finding the right gcam port for Poco X6 Neo is neither a straight forward task nor easy. (This is where I put my hard so that it will be easier for you to try the best and you do not need to test all the ports by yourself!)
  • Not all compatible mods available are specifically tuned for the Poco X6 Neo. It is possible that some or other features of GCam might be working might not be working as intended.
  • The stock MIUI camera apps has a pro mode, which does not exist on Google Camera mod.
  • Stock MI camera has a 960 super slow motion which simply does not exist on gcam port.
  • Sometimes not all cameras available to use.
  • May require advanced settings to use the high resolution mode on the primary camera.

How to enable Astro Photography mode on Poco X6 Neo Google Camera 7.x or Later

By default the astro photography mode is enabled on this GCam 7 and later versions. In case you still want to change the setting, follow the below instructions to enable or disable the astrophotography mode.

  • Go to GCam Settings
  • Scroll down and go to Advanced settings
  • Then scroll down almost to the end till you get Use astrophotography Mode under Night Sight settings.

How to shoot in astrophotography mode on GCam 7.0 onwards?

Once the Astrophotography mode is enabled, there are certain conditions to be met to capture photos in that mode.

Following conditions must be met to capture in Astrophotography mode (known as cuttlefish in Google Camera ports like this):
– It can be enabled on Night Sight mode (only)
– The phone must be kept static (use a tripod or keep the phone somewhere to keep it static)
– There must be low light condition
– It may take few seconds for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met

When the display shows something like “Astrophotography on” or “Phone is steady” or “Capturing cuttlefish” while capturing photo in Night Sight mode, then most likely it is shooting in astrophotography mode otherwise not.
When I kept my phone static in front of a good light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on no matter how longer I waited.
So, make sure it is a low light environment.

Of course GCam is good but that does not mean the Poco camera is bad. GCam provides better image quality, it has several features of its own which out performs the stock camera app.

But Xiaomi’s stock camera also has some good features which cannot be overlooked such as the Pro features, Vlogging features, and better hardware compatibility.

Summarizing it all, GCam will not replace the Poco camera rather both the camera apps can be installed on the same phone and you can use each app for which it better suits to your needs.

New features and updates of the GCam APK keep coming, hence there could be many versions of the GCam ports available for the Poco X6 Neo as of today and in future. This page will always list all the compatible Google Camera versions for the phone.
