Best Phones with Dual Front Cameras
Until the advent of the smartphone, none of us might have heard of the term ‘selfie’. Now the only thing the vast majority will look for while purchasing a smartphone will be the selfie camera. Oppo and Vivo are some brands with exclusive selfie cameras, while most of the flagship phones could even outperform a digital camera. The rear dual camera is very much heard off, but how about a dual selfie camera? Amused or bemused, the fact is, ‘yes’ it does exist! There are a handful of smartphones with a dual selfie camera.
While the rear dual camera is very familiar to all, many smartphone makers are taking the game into the next level by hosting an additional secondary camera for selfies. Here also the sensors work exactly like on a rear dual camera, however unlike rear camera here the subject of focus often tends to be in a close range usually within a distance of 30~ 100 cms from the phone. Moreover, the secondary camera is most likely to be a wide angle lens in order to cover a wider frame while taking groupies.
The primary sensor is often a normal camera with a f/2.8 ~ f/1.6 aperture, while the secondary camera in Huawei phones tends to be a monochromatic sensor in order to capture the sharper black and white image, giving the trademark bokeh effect with blurred background. However, brands like LG, Oppo etc. prefer a wide angle lens, giving more room by enabling a wider field of the frame. Unlike a rear dual camera, secondary telephoto lenses are not present since the subject often stays within a specific distance. While the type of secondary sensor varies, the end result is often a selfie with blurred background, where half the work is done by software and rest by the dual selfie cameras.
So that’s enough of story, unleash your selfie madness with dual front cameras and here are some of the best dual selfie camera smartphones in the market.
