Everyone don’t have a dslr camera,or they cant afford phones having portrait mode that give blur effect. But in this post I will tell you how to get pixel 2 portrait mode on any android device running on android oreo. You have noticed that Google pixel 2 having only one camera gives you far better portrait mode than any other device having dual camera. Recently a developer from XDA Forum does something like that only. They make a google camera mod apk file that will work for oero devices and gives you a very good potrait mode.
The App is still in development phase so expect a better performance & compatibility in coming future. This APP works best if your device has Qualcomm processors launched in 2017 with Android Oreo & ROOT access for best results.
