The photography website DxOMark published the analysis of the front camera of the iPhone 12 Pro, one of the four models of the current generation of Apple smartphones. In all, the model gained a score of 98 in the evaluation of the selfies sensor, placing the device in seventh place in the ranking.
The set consists of two sensors, one 12 MP and the other Structured Light (SL) for effects and depth calculations. It is capable of recording 4K videos at up to 60 frames per second.
According to the analysis, the front camera of the iPhone 12 Pro is of high quality, but it is not one of the best in the segment. It’s great for basic photo and video capture tasks, as well as Portrait Mode with effects that play with depth of field. Dolby HDR clips are said to be equally impressive in color capture, exposure and dynamic focus.
However, the team detected a high amount of noise in the photos under certain conditions, either in the background or in videos recorded in low light environments.
Exposure with the flash on and movement residues in the video were also targets of criticism – nothing that compromises the final experience, but excluding important points from the evaluation.

Huawei is the highlight of the DxOMark list, occupying the top two positions in the front camera ranking. Samsung is the company with the most models present, with four devices. Asus also appears twice, in addition to the Apple itself.
