What's wrong with plugin with ngx appended

Hello
i install imagepicker plugin and it comes with ngx appended.
and when I do ionic serve with iphone version in chrome, it has below error.
normally, it should evoke error saying cordova not available .
ngx appended is for ionic 4???
I deleted ngx on import like belows
import { ImagePicker } from ‘@ionic-native/image-picker’;
then, it evoke error
on constructor(public imagePicker:ImagePicker )
cannot find name ImagePicker
