Download a fully working version of Google Camera (GCam) app for Xiaomi Redmi 4x. This ported app supports front and back camera portrait mode and it has been tested to work flawlessly on MIUI 9. The GCam app is a popular Android app sports key features allowing its users to shot good quality photos in manual mode just like a real DSLR or Mirrorless camera. This includes the ability to adjust ISO level, shutter speed, and so on. The app also features the ability to save the photos in raw (.DNG) format.
The download links are available after the jump. The app is available in both .apk file and a flash-able .zip file. The first one is easy-to-install while the second one needs to be flashed through TWRP. However, you will need to first enable Android Camera2 API prior installing the app. On the other hand, the second package has a bundled Camera2 API enabler tweak within.

You can get better results in capturing portrait mode photos using these settings:

- Config camera HDR+: Auto
- Set the ISO level to 625 or 3200 (when shooting with front camera)
- Also, go to advanced settings set the manual fixed black level offset and change the first option to 63.50.

if i flash this does it remove stock camera
No it will not remove stock camera
Does this Gcam mod for Redmi 4X has manual features like exposure, ISO, white balance and manual focus? Also, did it fixed the “over-sharpen” image (I personally don’t like it. Maybe for some people, it’s okay for them) resulted from stock camera eventhough I’ve set the sharpness to the lowest and terrible audio video quality while recording video from MIUI camera app? And, how to uninstall/disable/switch to the stock camera app if I’m not satisfied with the mod?
I have tried the manual mod for stock MIUI camera app and I’m here looking for more better option.
this app will not erase the stock camera. Simply uninstall it as usual to remove it. In some cases, you might need to stop one of them from running in the background (use only Gcam or stock cam at once).
Alternative app you may try is Nokia Pro Camera with full manual settings:
as long as you have enabled Camera2 API2.
can you say this mod apk will support on this device or not
yes it will
Is it necessary to root the phone ?
It does not necessarily require root as long as you can enable camera2 API (via ADB for instance). However, the easiest method is by rooting your phone with Magisk and then flash Camera2 enabled module.
