Best phones with dual selfie cameras in India for all budgets

(Image credit: Aakash Jhaveri)

A phone’s rear camera is used to capture important moments like videos or still images from your point of view, the front camera makes you part of that moment. And since these moments can be with family, loved ones, friends or even once in a lifetime opportunity with your favourite star or a sports person, hence it becomes all the more important that the phone should have a good selfie camera.

Let us add a small trivia here. Can you name the first smartphone with a selfie camera? It was made by a Japanese company Kyocera VP-210 back in the year 1999. Though Wikipedia counts the Motorola A920 released in the year 2003 as the first selfie camera phone.

And to put things into perspective, the VP-210 came with a 110,000-pixel sensor that translates to 0.11MP in the current scenario. From the likes of Kyocera VP-210 and Motorola A920, the selfie camera on a phone has seen a world of a change. We not only have phones with a far more powerful front-facing camera but the year 2020 has seen phones with dual selfie cameras going mainstream.

In this list, we will have a look at a few of the best phones with dual-selfie cameras in India, filtered based on their pricing. The list includes phone from Oppo, a brand that has always emphasized on selfie camera experience, but Poco, OnePlus and a couple of phones from Realme as well.
