Good news fonr anyone with a Nexus 5X of Nexus 6X as they can enjoy some of the new camera features introduced with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. The Google Camera NX mod has been updated to v7 and now offers Motion Photos and Face Retouching. Motion Photos takes a few seconds of video before and after you click a picture, while Face Retouching helps remove any imperfections. 

The developer behind the Google Camera NX mod is Charles_l, who is offering the mod with Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) mode and another without ZSL. Non-ZSL mode should work in a manner identical to the official Google Camera 5.0 APK with the exception of Motion Photos. The ZSL mode APK should work identical to the Google Camera 5.0 APK. 

It was also noted that a couple of other features available on the Pixel 2 such as the Portrait Mode and AR mode will not be available with Google Camera NX. That is because the Nexus devices do not have the hardware to allow such features to work. Nonetheless, the addition of the remaining features should be enough for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P owners to give the mod a try. The Google Camera NX can be downloaded from here.
