Adobe has released the Photoshop Camera application on a previous version on Android. And the company didn't skimp on "preview": The app isn't even available on the Google Play Store, it only works via APK install and is only compatible with a select group of devices running at least Android 9.0 Pie.
APK download is available through XDA Developers website, who discovered the functional build of the application. Importantly, however, a large number of bugs can be found even on compatible phones, as the APK file has not been officially distributed.
According to XDA, the Adobe Photoshop Camera has support for the smartphones below, running Android 9.0 or higher of Google's operating system. The site also tested the app on Mate 30 Pro, which managed to deliver a decent user experience.

So far, Adobe has not given an official release estimate for Photoshop Camera on Android, but the arrival of the app is long awaited. The reason? The tool brings key software tools and expertise from the software giant to an image capture application.

The tool also comes with a collection of "Lenses", which are nothing but smart filters that can be downloaded and used during capture. The effects range from reality distortions to background blur.
