With the launch of Pixel 2, Google sought to rival Apple in the camera segment – mainly because the new device came with portrait mode, and you can compare the duel between him and the iPhone X by creating the bokeh effect.
So far, the Mountain View giant has retained the exclusive feature in Pixel 2, and that’s likely to remain so for some time. However, a developer has managed to take portrait mode to other devices.
Thanks to the developer at XDA forum Charles Chow, now it is possible to use a portrait mode in the first-generation Pixel, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 5X smartphones. This is the same developer who brought features from the Google Camera app to other models.
To function exactly like in Pixel 2, simply install the NX Camera application, access the camera menu and choose portrait mode.
