Android 4.2 Camera app with Photo Sphere now available for Galaxy Nexus

Introduced on Monday, Android 4.2 brings a slew of new enhancements and features that rectify the minor jump in the version number. One of the most–if not the most–heavily touted features is Google’s entirely redesigned Camera and Gallery interface. The new build brings with it an intuitive options ring that pops up wherever you place your finger, allowing you to easily control the focus and various user settings. Also new is Photo Sphere, which has the ability to capture 360-degree images, similar to Google Maps Street View.

You may be thinking, “all this is great, except I don’t have a Nexus 4.” This may be true, but if you have a Galaxy Nexus, the entire new app has been ripped from Android 4.2, and  packaged into a nice .apk for easy installation. Hit the break for download links.

    Yeah, this isn’t an APK, it’s an update that you have to be rooted to flash to your device. It would be nice if you got the details right.

    Well, the Galaxy Nexus is getting Android 4.2 I’m sure and Photo Sphere will be bundled, it’s just a software update and not hardware specific. Let’s wait and see…

      I’ll be waiting. I’m betting on late December or January.
