Smartphones are evolving more and more, to the point that, in certain aspects, they seem to have reached their ceiling, as in the subject of photography. To continue evolving, some manufacturers have decided to adopt a double camera which, in addition to improving the quality of the photos, are intended to be a differential element.
At first only high-end mobiles benefited from the dual camera, but they have reached a point where cheaper mobiles have been able to join this trend. Here is a list of ten mid-range smartphones that make use of a dual sensor.
Xiaomi Redmi Pro
Xiaomi is one of the most recent adopters of the double camera, and it is no longer that manufacturer that had a design that was too similar between generations, now it seems determined to innovate (a great test is the Mi Mix). Among its mid-range, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is one of those who have decided to bring this feature.
In terms of specifications, the Redmi Pro has a 5.5-inch FullHD screen, a processor MediaTek Helio X25, 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of expandable storage. Its dual rear camera is 13 megapixels and has an f / 2.0 aperture, PDAF and dual-tone LED flash.
One of the biggest advantages of this smartphone is its battery, since it has a battery of 4,050 mAh. At the time of his departure it was worth about 200 euros to change, although today it is very difficult to find.
Moto G5S Plus
Although the Moto family has been slow, they have finally decided to mount double cameras in some of their terminals, and one of them is the Moto G5S Plus, the largest in the mid-range so far. For starters, your screen has a diagonal of 5.5 inches, brings FullHD resolution and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
The processor is a Snapdragon 625, an old acquaintance of the mid-range, which comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory that can be expanded. Its dual rear camera has two 13-megapixel sensors with f / 2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash and dynamic HDR. All this comes in a phone that, out of the box, costs 299 euros, which is not bad.
Honor has not wasted time when it comes to including dual cameras in mobiles that are out of the high range, and the first test is this Honor 6X that has quite competent specifications. Your screen is 5.5 inches, which has FullHD resolution and equips LCD technology.
The processor is a Kirin 655 from the house, and it is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage with microSD cards. In the photographic section, we have a double camera 12 + 2 megapixels, where the secondary sensor is responsible for improving focus. This solid phone has a starting price of 249 euros.
Nubia Z17 mini
The Chinese manufacturer Nubia, of course, has also jumped on the dual camera bandwagon, this time with the Nubia Z17 Mini for the mid-range. If we focus on your specifications, we have a 5.2 inch IPS screen with FullHD resolution.
The processor is a powerful Snapdragon 652, which comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage with microSD cards. Its dual rear camera consists of two 13-megapixel sensors, one RGB and the other monochrome, which has PDAF, OIS and f / 2.2 aperture. The starting price of this mid-range beast is 369 euros.
Again, we have here an Honor phone, this time a little more advanced than the previous one. In terms of specifications, the Honor 8 brings a screen that is 5.2 inches, it brings FullHD resolution and uses LCD technology. The processor is an old high-end, the still powerful Kirin 950, which comes with 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of expandable storage.
As for its double camera, it has two 12 megapixel sensors, where one is RGB and the other monochrome, and which has an autofocus laser and dual-tone LED flash. Its starting price was 399 euros, perhaps a bit high, but today it is easy to find it much cheaper.
Xiaomi Mi 5X
One of the most recent dual camera phones from Xiaomi is the Mi 5X, which has more than worthy specifications for its price. As is usual in this list, it has a screen of 5.5 inches with FullHD resolution. The processor is the well-known Snapdragon 625, which is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
In the case of its double rear camera, we have two 12 megapixel sensors, making the secondary the telephoto function. In this case, in addition, the portrait mode is incorporated so that your family and friends come out better. The starting price is 220 euros at the change, in the usual trend of the Chinese manufacturer of offering good specifications at low prices.
Meizu M6 Note
Meizu has not been able to resist the charms of dual cameras either, not even for its mid-range, where the M6 Note debuts this feature. In terms of specifications, we have a 5.5-inch screen with FullHD resolution. The processor, again, is the Snapdragon 625, which comes with 3/4 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of storage.
Regarding its photographic section, we have a 12 + 5 megapixel dual sensor with f / 1.9 aperture and a six-magnification lens. One of the main attractions is its price, since the most basic version stands at 150 euros, while the most powerful remains at 240 euros.
ZTE Blade V8 Pro
ZTE, another that joins the trend of double cameras, this time with its Blade V8 Pro, a phone with specifications that, if you have read this list so far, will sound familiar. Your screen has a size of 5.5 inches and has FullHD resolution. The processor is a Snapdragon 325 (they will give it away with the cookies), and it comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.
The two rear sensors have the same resolution, 13 megapixels, and incorporate the bokeh mode so you can play with the blurs before and after taking the photo. In terms of price, it is not bad at all, since it is a few cents below 230 euros.
Lenovo K8 Note
For Lenovo, the K8 Note is not only a step forward by including a dual camera, but by betting on pure Android instead of its criticized layer of customization. Your screen is 5.5 inches and has FullHD resolution. The processor is a Jelio X23 that comes with 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of expandable storage with microSD cards.
Its rear camera is 13 + 5 megapixels, and in this case the secondary sensor would be in charge of capturing additional information to improve the quality of the images. The starting price is between 168 and 173 euros depending on the version chosen that could increase if it arrives in Europe.
Huawei Nova 2
To end this list, Huawei adds another mobile to its catalog of dual camera smartphones with the Nova 2. It is a mid-range mobile that comes with a screen of 5 inches with FullHD resolution, a Kirin 659 processor from the house, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
In the photographic section, we have two 12 and 8 megapixel rear sensors with aperture f / 1.8 and PDAF. Its starting price is 325 euros, one of the few on this list that exceeds the barrier of 300 euros.
