The front camera is an indispensable part of a smartphone, and the portrait mode adds a whole flavour into the mix. While most smartphones rock a front shooter, some rely on software to measure the depth of field, while others carry a secondary depth sensor on the front to get more accurate results. The camera on the front also relies on artificial intelligence to boost facial details and turn self-portraits into a piece of art. Check out four such smartphone cameras on Amazon listed here.

OnePlus Nord 

The OnePlus Nord comes with a 32MP primary selfie camera and an additional depth sensor to generate creamy bokeh in selfies. The portrait mode can easily detect the subject and separates the background generating a soft blur. The Nord also comes with a dedicated Night Mode and can take 4K videos from the selfie camera. By default, the selfie sensor combines 4 pixels into one through a technique called pixel binning to output sharp, detailed 8MP selfies. 

Samsung Galaxy M31s

The Samsung Galaxy M31s also comes with a 32MP camera, that performs pixel binning to capture incredible details from faces. The M31s relies on software to shoot portrait selfies, but the results are just as good. The portrait selfie mode also works on pets and other objects and can record sharp 4K videos. The M31s is a well-rounded smartphone with a 6,000mAh battery and a bright AMOLED display. 

Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite

The Galaxy Note10 Lite lets you take selfies from a distance. You can keep the camera resting on a surface and use the S-Pen on the phone as a remote shutter. This helps when there are a lot of faces in the frame. The camera also comes with a dedicated portrait mode that works through computer algorithms which calculate the depth of field and cuts out the subject accurately, resulting in portraits that stand out. The Note10 Lite promises high-end performance thanks to the Exynos 9810 chipset inside. The S-Pen is handy for scribbling notes, doodling and capturing photos. It’s easily one of the most productive smartphones out there. 

Xiaomi Redmi K20 

The Redmi K20 hides the 20MP camera inside a pop-up module that comes out only when needed, lighting up as it rises. Aside from looking cool, the selfie camera can also shoot sharp selfies with lots of facial details. Xiaomi’s AI beauty feature cleans up the spots and blemishes, making photos look professional. The smartphone itself is quite capable of powering through the day with the Snapdragon 730 under the hood, along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It has a bezel-less AMOLED display on the front with HDR10 support and a 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
