Google understands that a lot of you love taking pictures even though you’re using a low-end device and will now give you a better camera experience with its newly launched Camera Go app.
Google Camera app as we know only works with Qualcomm devices but that narrative changed when Xiaomi introduced Redmi Note 8 Pro with MediaTek Helio G90T gaming Soc. It is the first and only MTK device to have GCAM port.
So, will Camera Go be available for all Android Go devices?
As of now, Camera Go is only available for Nokia 1.3. This smartphone comes with only 1GB of RAM and the processor is Qualcomm QM215.
Does this mean it will only support Qualcomm chip like the main app?
We can’t say for sure, but we hope not.
Google Camera Go will be replacing the default camera in upcoming Android Go smartphones. The camera app will come with Google assistant integration and several other features which will be adapted from the main app.
