Nokia recently rolled out an update to the Nokia 8 devices where Nokia camera was updated with Pro Camera mode. Now, the Nokia 8 Camera with Pro Camera mode is available for all Android devices and you do not even need root to install this on your device!
Some days ago this month, HMD Global had stated that an update for the Nokia 8 will be made available soon. The company’s CPO Juho Sarvikas had explained via Twitter the reason why it took HMD Global so much time to provide the Pro Camera update.
We need to overhaul the entire imaging framework. We have been working on it for months. Taking longer that I anticipated but now looks good. We will update shortly

Now, the much talked about the update is finally available for some Nokia 8 owners with a global roll-out just around the corner.
Nokia Pro Camera Mode for All Devices
One of the biggest changes we had seen in the recent update is the Nokia Pro Camera mode. The Nokia 8 camera now comes with more features such as manual controls over white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation. Nokia says that intuitive controls will now show how adjustments change your images in real time.
The new Pro camera mode is essentially a Lumia-like manual mode. One of the major highlights of Nokia’s Lumia smartphones was the camera quality, which is also why the Pro Camera mode arriving in the Nokia 8 has its users excited.
XDA Recognized Contributor linuxct, who had previously brought us so many other mods, has done it again. He has now ported the Nokia 8 Pro Camera Mode to All Android devices.
The only requirement is that your device must support Level 3 Camera API in order to be able to install this app.
