If you want your next handset to comply with the latest trends and are looking for a phone with both – an immersive full view display and the proficiency of two rear cameras – there aren’t many options available, especially in the budget price segment.
We have compiled a list of phones conforming to these two latest trends that are available as of today. Quite a few others will soon join the fray. As of now, these are the best phones with full view display and dual cameras that you can buy.
Best Mid-range and affordable phones with 18:9 display and dual cameras
OnePlus upgraded the 5 to 5T (FAQ), and the biggest changes are the inclusion of a new and improved 18:9 display panel and an improved dual camera system.
The handset now has a 6-inch full HD OLED display (from Samsung) and replaces the telephoto lens on the second sensor with a regular 27mm focal length, f/1.7 aperture lens (both sensors now have the same lens). OnePlus says this has been done to enhance low-light performance. The handset will soon be upgraded to Android Oreo-based Oxygen OS, has a 3300mAh battery, and is blazing fast.
The LG G6 is a compact and ergonomic handset which is now selling for a mid-range price. The phone is delightfully compact, has an HDR 10 compatible display, is powered by Snapdragon 821 chipset and has excellent audio output via the headphone jack.
The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant is now available for Rs. 32,990 in India, which makes it a worthy alternative to OnePlus 5T for anyone who’d prefer a compact phone.
Honor 9i and Honor 7X
Huawei has a couple of eligible contenders with 18:9 displays and dual cameras, each with affordable price tags. The Honor 9i and Honor 7X aren’t very different from one another and are both available at aggressive prices. While the former has dual cameras on both front and rear, the later has an extra sensor only on its back.

The handset now has Snapdragon 430 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. There is a dedicated SD card slot too (accepts up to 128GB). The dual-sim phone runs on Android Nougat out of the box and houses a 3000mAh battery.
