The Samsung A12 arrived in mid-2020 with a 6.5-inch display and the Helio P35 SOC. The device uses four main cameras on the back. It uses a 48MP lens, 5MP ultrawide lens, 2MP macro and depth while the front uses a 8MP camera.
With camera specifications like this, the Samsung A12 is already quite good but we can actually improve it further by using third-party camera applications. One of the most popular is Google Camera.
Google Camera or GCam is packed with features ranging from HDR Plus to Smartbrust and many more that allow users to take high-quality photos. In fact, people won’t believe that the shot came from a phone camera if you capture a shot between GCam and a pre-installed camera app.
There are also other features including Lens Blur, Motion Photos, Night Sight, Astrophotography Mode, and many more that can be utilized by simply adding the configuration files available as extras.
If you are curious about this application, then we will guide you how to download and install Gcam on Samsung A12.
