Samsung unveiled a new range of Galaxy devices recently, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the S22 range, already shaping up to be among the best new smartphones of 2022. After the runaway hit that was the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – widely considered among the best new smartphones released in 2021 – the anticipation runs high for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. While other specs will vary, the new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra sports a mammoth 40 MP front camera, like its predecessor – which is just as good, given the near-perfect DXOMark score that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra’s camera system scored last year.
Also released last week: The Oppo Reno 7 Pro, another superhit smartphone with a solid 32 MP front camera backed by a new Sony x Oppo lens. It only makes sense that the front camera is getting due attention: Video calling is the new IM, WFH demands Zoom calls from wherever you are, and if you’re out and about, you do want a device that can do you some decent selfies. Here are 5 smartphones, across budgets, with the best front cameras on offer right now.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and 5 best new smartphones with powerful front cameras
1. Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G, Rs 39,999
A powerful mid-range smartphone that is winning points for design as much as its specs, the OPPO Reno7 Pro’s 32MP selfie camera is built around the IMX709, an RGBW sensor that was developed by Sony and OPPO. This front camera is 60% more sensitive to light and capable of reducing noise by 30% compared to its predecessor, the Reno 6Pro. Additionally, its rear camera setup includes the flagship-grade 50MP Sony IMX766 sensor, and is particularly good for high-end videography and bokeh flare portrait video, meaning that your Insta Reels get new life with the latest among best new smartphones of 2022.
