1. Google has "Googles" app. Funny name isn't it? It does exactly what Google Lens above do, without need to flash your device.
Unfortunately, abandoned project. Last update was 2014. Nevertheless, still work.

2. Google app. Yep, the one which you always throw "OK Google". It has a feature that also do search for whatever on your screen by long press home button. Default was turned off. In sort, same like Google Lens or Google Googles.
