Xiaomi released the Redmi K20 (Xiaomi Mi 9T) and Redmi K20 Pro (Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro) last year. The devices sport a triple rear camera setup on the rear, with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. And on the front, there’s a 20 MP pop-up selfie camera.

Although the devices are capable of clicking pretty decent pictures, yet several users feel that the stock MIUI camera app doesn’t utilize the full potential of the available hardware and that the camera’s performance can be improved to a great extent. You if feel the same, then you must give a try to the Google Camera Port on your Redmi K20 or K20 Pro.

Installing the ported version of the Google Camera app not only improves the camera quality of your phone but also enables you to use Pixel camera features like Astrophotography Mode, Portrait Mode, Night Sight, HDR+, and more.

There’s a long list of developers, who voluntarily develop and provide their Google Camera ports on this website. Some of these are built specifically for a certain device, while some others are more generic and work across different smartphones.

So, while there are several ports that will work on the phone, but they might not be as stable or support every camera feature. And that’s the main purpose of this post, to help you get the latest and most stable Google Camera port for your Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro.

At the moment, GCam ports from developers Burial, jairo rossi, onFire, UltraM8, and Urnyx05 are the ones that work really well on this phone. Their individual ports are based on Google Camera app version 7.3.020 and older version v6.2.030.

  1. Hello sir. Which gcam version is best for redmi k20 pro. I want to click pictures as shown in above page by stingeR.

    1. Gaurav, currently the best ports for the K20 series are from the following developers. I am also linking out to the exact versions. The configuration files for each of these ports (if applicable) could be found on the linked page itself.

      1) Arnova8G2’s beta: GCam_user_6beta3.201224.0107build-8.1.101.apk
      2) burial: GCam_7.3_Burial_release_beta_10.apk
      3) onFire: Fire_7.3.020_4th-form.apk
      4) UltraM8: UltraCVM_v5.1.apk
      5) Urnyx05: PXv8.1_GCam-v1.1.apk

      Arnova’s and Urnyx05’s ports are based on Google Camera v8.1, while the others are based on v7.x.

    1. Thanks for the tip, Dave! I have updated and added the Beta 5 APK, along with the corresponding XML files.

  2. i don´t know why, but im on android 10 using Google Camera v7.2.010 Port by Urnyx05, and my front camera was stuck on the popped up mode after leaving the app. is that bug a common one?

    1. Hi David. That could happen as no port is 100% perfect. Did you try force-closing and relaunching the GCam app to see if that fixes?

  3. I have the MI 9T Pro and used Google Camera v7.2.010 Port by Urnyx05: GCam_7.2.010_Urnyx05-v1.2.apk. The long press setting to use the ultra wide camera wasn’t there but instead had the toggle settings to show the telephoto and ultra wide photos. The issue is when shooting on ultra wide, the app sometimes crashes. Is there a fix for this?

    1. Hi Leo. Please try using Urnyx05’s latest v1.9 port and see if it improves the ultrawide behavior.

  4. I’m using the Google Camera v7.1.019 Port by Parrot043 and I am unable to find the setting to be able utilise the other 2 cameras.

    1. Hi Andy. Do you mean you’re not able to switch to the other rear lenses on your phone? If yes, then it doesn’t support the feature yet. You can expect it to be released in the future though. The main focus for every developer right now is to get their ports working with the basic functions first.

  5. Not able to download any file. When i click on link nothing happens at all. How to download the ports?

    1. Hi Naman. It’s possibly because Google Chrome on your phone might not have storage permissions. Tried on my end, on both mobile and desktop, it works fine.

      Please check your browser’s permissions and ensure that storage permission is granted to it.

    1. Hi Pradeep. Which version of the port did you use? Ports by urnyx05 and san1ty do not require loading config files.
