The new Google Pixel smartphones, formerly knows as Nexus Marlin and Sailfish, were launched about a week ago and people are expecting their pre-orders to be honored very soon.
The devices come in two variants: the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL. As you may have guessed the XL one is the largest of the two but, other than the size aspect, resolution and battery, they have the same specs. The two devices also run the latest version of the Google Camera app and some tech analysts believe that it won’t be long until this particular app will be ported to other devices that are now running Android 7.0 Nougat.
It appears that at the moment, XDA Developers have already managed to port this app and it’s now working on the Google Nexus 5X and the Google Nexus 6P. This modified Google Camera app will function along with the pre-existing camera app so there should be no concern that the former will affect the latter app.
The app will not work on non-Nexus devices, so if you own a different device, don’t even attempt to get the new app.
The modified Google Camera app also comes with security scan report in order to assure everybody that the app has no malicious content, courtesy of XDA Developers.
However, this is just one of the Pixel features that were ported or are about to be ported to other Nexus devices that have upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat. There is also the Google Assistant that has been ported, which was considered an exclusive feature of the Pixel.
At the same time, there is a leak online that showcases the system image of the new Pixel smartphones and thanks to them people can get a good idea of what new and updated apps will come with these new devices.
