Sony introduced Background defocus app first on Xperia Z1S, LTE version of Xperia Z1 in USA, background defocus app blurs an image background to create an effect like DSLR. Background defocus app was limited to a few Xperia smartphones till now but today Sony released it globally on Play Store, now Background defocus app can be downloaded on all Xperia handsets which have Sony Social Smart Camera app installed.

Background defocus 1.2.6 version app is the first version which is seen on Play Store though older versions have been spotted on Xperia Z1, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1S pre-installed in android 4.3 and android 4.4.2 KitKat update. To get the perfect pictures from Background defocus app you need to focus on object atleast 15-45 cm away from camera and background atleast 5m away. It will not work on the maximum resolution of your handset.

Download Background defocus 1.2.6 version app

Follow the Google Play Store link to download it. If you are unable to download it then check the below link to download it manually and install it like a normal apk.

Download com.sonymobile.backgrounddefocus-1.apk

 Background defocus 1.2.6 version app
