As with how friendly it is the Xiaomi Poco F1 for Android development community, the phone receives many custom ROMs already. However, some users who have flashed custom ROM may still want parts of MIUI’s awesomeness. One of which is its stock camera app.
A member of XDA community, AEonAX, has managed to port MIUI 10 Camera for devices powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. The SoC is so powerful. Hence, it would be a waste if its users couldn’t use it at its true potential.
The app may have some drawbacks compared to ported Google Camera app. However, the MIUI camera app has its own fans. Its familiar menu, UI, and features are the “things” that make users loyal.
Are you running a custom ROM on your Poco F1 and do want to have that glorious MIUI stock camera? Try this. Anyway, this app is also compatible with stock MIUI 10 ROM based on Android 9.0 Pie. It won’t replace the default camera. Instead, it will be available as another app named AnX Camera.
Key Features of Ported Mi Camera App
- 960fps Super Slow motion
- Photo shot as usual
- Manual Mode
- Portrait Mode
- 4K30 (4K video recording at 30 frames per second) with EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization)
- 4K60 also works.
