Our quest for larger and larger displays on our phones eventually hit a roadblock. Basically, phones could only get so large before they just wouldn’t fit your palm or your pocket. So, the next logical step was to remove the bezels, which increased the screen size, without the need to increase the size of the phone. Of course, the problem now was that there was no place for the front camera. Smartphone manufacturers managed to find a way around the problem through a myriad of ways, the most interesting being the pop-up camera, that offered the maximum possible screen-to-body ratio. Here’s a look at some of the best phones with a pop-up camera that you can buy right now.
The OnePlus 7T Pro features a 16MP front camera that is tucked away within the body of the phone. When the time comes to take a selfie or unlock the phone, the module pops up to do its work, and then slides back down again. The phone also features a 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED QHD+ display, with 90Hz refresh rate, which results in smoother animations. The phone is powered by a flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset, which is one of the best processors that is currently available in the market.
The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom features a 16MP front facing unit that is housed on one of the most unique pop-up modules around. The entire module rises in the shape of a ‘shark fin’ which make a bit of a style statement. Other than that, the phone lives up to its name by offering a 48MP + 8MP + 13MP triple rear camera setup that offers 10x Hybrid Zoom. The Reno 10x Zoom offers a large 6.9-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset.
While most other manufacturers were content with offering a single camera in its po-up module. Vivo took things a step further by offering a dual cameras. The pop-up module in the Vivo V17 Pro features 32MP+8MP cameras at the front. The 8MP sensor features a wide angle lens that allows users to take group selfies without the need to squeeze in together. At the back, users get a quad-camera setup with a 48MP+13MP+8MP+2MP setup. As for the display, the Vivo 17 Pro packs a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400x1080p.
If you really want a good phone with a pop-up camera, but have a tight budget, then the Redmi K20 might be just what the doctor ordered. The device features a 20MP front camera, but what sets its pop-up module apart from the rest is the fact that it features lights, which should help you stand out from the crowd. At the back of the phone is a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP sensor with a 2x telephoto lens, and a 13MP sensor with an ultra-wide lens that has a 124.8-degree field of view. The Redmi K20 packs a 6.39-inch FHD+ display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor.
