We have got a working GCam port for Redmi A2 and A2 Plus which was recently launched. Both the phones are targeted in the lower budget with a decent hardware spec and a Mediatek Helio G36 chipset.
With the advancement in the GCam port development, this phone is very much capable of running it but it does not have any great camera hardware to give you great images.
It comes with a dual camera setup, out of which the primary camera is 8MP and a 0.08MP depth sensor. The stock camera captures decent photos but not like this Redmi A2 / Plus GCam port. Try it and see the difference by yourself.
In fact, there are few compatible GCam port APKs available for the Redmi A2 / Plus phone which are brought to you by BSG, Shamim which you can try right now!
