Sony makes experimental AOSP camera app available to developers
Sony has just released an experimental AOSP camera app for use with devices in Sony’s Open Device program. The camera app is aimed purely at developers, with Sony hoping that the app will allow them to create custom ROM’s with basic camera functions.
The experimental camera app is based on Qualcomm’s framework, but has not been calibrated, lacks Sony’s tweaks and enhancements, and is prone to lagging and crashes. Despite not being intended for daily use, Sony hopes the app will allow developers to dig into the app’s innards, inspiring innovation along the way. The following Xperia devices are compatible with the camera app:
- Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact
- Xperia Z Ultra (MSM8974)
- Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet (MSM8974AB)
- Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Compact Tablet (MSM8974AC), and Xperia Z3+
- Xperia Z4 Tablet (MSM8994)
The Xperia Z5, Z5 Compact, and Z5 Premium (MSM8994), Xperia M2, Xperia E3, and Xperia T3 will be added to the list at a later date. If you’d like to get your hands dirty, just click the source link below to get started with the experimental camera app.
