Sony Xperia M2 Smart Social Camera and Addons Ported to All Xperia Phones Running Jelly Bean or KitKat

The Sony Xperia M2 is Sony’s affordable offering for early 2014. While not quite a lust-worthy flagship device like its big brother the Xperia Z2, the M2 is still decently specced, and it offers quite a bit to make it an ideal device for those who don’t need the absolute latest and greatest.

One of the nice software additions found on the M2 is its Smart Social Camera app. Luckily, XDA Senior Member xperiaz2 has ported it to all Xperia devices running either Jelly Bean or KitKat such as the Xperia M, SP, TX, V, Z, Z1, Z1 Compact, ZR, and ZU. The camera app itself offers automatic scene recognition with 36 predefined scene types, and automatic HDR mode. The addons then build on the camera app’s functionality by adding things like portrait retouching and intelligent capture, which can capture 61 frames in two seconds—even before the shutter button is pressed.

If you’ve got an older Xperia device running Jelly Bean or KitKat and you wish to run the latest Smart Social Camera app, head over to the ported application thread and give it a shot.
