We’ve all lamented the fact that images taken in low light environments turn out dark and blurry. While low light environments aren’t the most ideal setting for a perfect shot, they can be bypassed by checking out these phones that come with pixel binning front cameras. For the uninitiated, pixel binning refers to an Image Signal Processor level implementation where the demosaicing process combines information from four pixels into one which helps with low light photography, giving you better images in environments where it may be too dark for other smartphones.
The Vivo V19 has a 32MP+8MP front-facing camera that should deliver bright images, even in dim lighting. If you’re interested in photography, you’ll be glad to know that this smartphone has a 48MP+8MP+2MP+2MP AI Quad rear camera that supports various creative filters and modes. For instance, the camera setup supports super night mode, ultra-stable video, art portrait video, super macro, and bokeh portrait. Using a bunch of apps together shouldn’t slow down the system, as the Vivo V19 is equipped with 8GB RAM and a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 AIE processor. It also has a 128GB internal memory that’s expandable up to 512GB to store all your pictures, videos, apps and more.
Samsung Galaxy A51
With a quad-camera setup (48MP+12MP+5MP+5MP) at the back, the Samsung Galaxy A51 takes incredible images in low light environments, thanks to pixel binning. The images are bright, vibrant and look amazing on the Super AMOLED display which has a resolution of 2400×2080 pixels. The device also comes with support for 16 million colours as well. And, if you think that all this is going to drain your battery, think again as the Samsung Galaxy A51 comes with a 4000mAh battery that will keep the phone running for long periods of time.
Vivo S1 Pro
Another entry on the list from the house of Vivo. The Vivo S1 Pro comes with an AI quad-rear camera setup with pixel binning to give you some of the best low light images out there. With a 48MP+8MP+2MP+2MP rear camera, the images are bright, vibrant and really pop out of the 1080×2340 pixel display. You can expect smooth and fast performance from the Vivo S1 pro owing to the fact that it comes with 8GB of RAM and 128Gb of internal storage.

The smartphone also has a 48MP quad-rear camera that can help you take some creative pictures thanks to the ultra-wide, macro, depth sensor, portrait, night mode, AI scene recognition, HDR, and pro modes. Under the hood, there’s a 2.0GHz Mediatek Helio G85 octa-core processor based on the 12nm process, Helio G85, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal memory (that’s expandable to 512GB) to ensure that the smartphone runs smoothly. The 5020mAh battery should last you the day; however, even after the battery goes down, there’s a 22.5W fast charger in the box to help you out.
