It turns out that Samsung flagship phones, such as the Galaxy S22, provide better support for third-party camera app developers than Google Pixel phones. Although Google encourages camera app developers to use the CameraX Jetpack library, smartphones from Google and other Android OEMs do not support this standard.
Developer Zachary Wander highlights this puzzling message in the CameraXInfo app. The app shows that neither the Google Pixel nor the OnePlus 10 Pro supports the CameraX extension.
While Google fell short of its own standards, Samsung exceeded expectations. Using the CameraXInfo app, Max Winebach said that on the Samsung Galaxy S22, third-party camera app developers have native access to all extensions (auto, bokeh, HDR, night, face retouch) and can be accessed through a single logical camera all three sensors.
This may explain why the Samsung Galaxy S22 can offer native camera support in apps like Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat.
