How to Install Google Camera on Xiaomi Mi A3

Mi A3

Xiaomi Mi A3 recently launched in China with a lot of new features and a huge upgrade over the previous version. The Mi A3 comes with the triple camera setup, glass body and a slightly upgraded processor. The main sensor is a 48MP Sony sensor which can capture really detailed pictures with a wide sensor to capture wide landscapes.

We are also throwing in some camera samples to compare the picture quality of the default camera to the Google camera.
