Selfies are here to stay, thanks to the latest trend of dual selfie cameras on smartphones. Chinese smartphone makers such as Vivo and Oppo have played a key role in the influx of selfie-centric phones in the Indian market.
It should be mentioned that decent selfie cameras were earlier restricted to premium smartphones only but, good selfie snappers have been accommodated in affordable smartphones too. We have curated a list of top five selfie-focused smartphones under Rs 20,000 to consider.
Gionee A1 is the latest to join the bandwagon of selfie-focused devices and this one comes with a 16MP front snapper. Gionee’s A series line-up focuses on selfies and the A1 carries forward the legacy at a price of Rs 19,900.
Vivo V5 Plus
Vivo is known as a brand that has been focused on manufacturing selfie-centric smartphones and the V5 Plus qualifies as one such incredible smartphone. Its dual front cameras have been co-engineered with Sony to cater to the selfie-focused crowd.
