Sony Xperia Z2 Camera Ported to Various Xperia Devices

Sony Xperia Z2 Camera Ported to Various Xperia Devices

The  was launched last week at MWC 2014 to much fanfare. Improving on its predecessor by fixing all of its most significant hardware shortcomings, it’s no wonder why the Z2 is subject to much praise. But as one would expect from the latest generation flagship device from a major OEM, the  packs quite a few software additions as well.

Just a few days ago, we talked about how XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD posted a leaked firmware dump for the Xperia Z2, and how it was only a matter of time before some of the Z2′s features would make their way to other devices. Now, we’re seeing the first fruits of this leaked firmware in the form of a ported camera experience.

The ported camera software comes courtesy of XDA Forum Member xperiaz2 (can you guess which device he fancies?), and it brings the Xperia Z2 Smart Social Camera Addons Creative Effects to various Sony Xperia devices. This includes features like background defocus (a.k.a. simulated bokeh), AR effects, creative filters, and more. The addons work with Xperia devices running Android 4.3 or greater, though some effects will work as far back as Xperias running 4.1 and above.

You can get in on the action by heading over to the ported app thread and downloading the various APKs.
