How to use the Huawei P20 camera on mobiles with Kirin 659

The problem of the camera in mobiles with EMUI

Why would you be interested in installing the camera application of a Huawei P20 on other Huawei phones with Kirin 659? In the most basic, because it is better. The results of your photos will look much more, the same way it does install google camera on mobiles like Xiaomi Mi A1. They are better apps, with better post-processing and that are worth installing.

However, we can go further, with more specific uses or, rather, problems to solve. If you install a custom ROM on a mobile with EMUI, you will lose the quality of the camera. There is little twist to this: bookstores Camera does not get along with custom ROMs, resulting in crashes and errors in photos.

Installing the stock camera of a Huawei P20 solves these problems. Everything “connects” as it should and faults are fixed. A user of the XDA-Developers forums decided to solve this problem and created a camera mod that is compatible with Huawei and Honor devices with Kirin 659 processor, As the Honor 9 Lite. For this it is necessary to unlock the bootloader (something that since July 22 is not officially possible) and install the module using Magisk.

The results are very satisfactory and superior to those of AOSP (Android Open Source Project, the β€œpure” system) and its camera app (you have more samples in the Via). There are bugs, yes, but the module is constantly developing for troubleshooting. But you can control the aperture, take photos in portrait mode, use HDR, panorama mode, time-lapse, scan QR codes … There will be no miracles, and your mobile hardware will put the limit. But you will greatly improve the quality of your photos if you use a mobile Huawei with a custom ROM.
