2018 dual camera smartphones

Dual-camera smartphones have been very popular in the last couple of years, and manufacturers are focusing on them. But do not think that the second camera will allow you to get better quality pictures, it is not necessary for this at all. And why then, the reader asks? For the so-called bokeh effect. Have you seen photos where the background is blurred around the main subject? This is the bokeh effect. It is impossible to get it with one camera, but please with two, because one camera focuses on the main object, the second takes a background picture and using the software allows blurring the background. And now – a list of the most interesting dual-camera models of the season 2018.

Demand for the G8 was not so high, even there was an opinion that everyone was waiting for the iPhone X, although the start of sales showed that the deficit on X, although it was, was not everywhere – somewhere the smartphone was available for purchase on the first day of the start sales. Well, what new sales results will show, we will soon find out.
