The camera pair on the Nokia 6.1 Plus works together to capture 4K videos, but the EIS only works with the 1080p videos recorded at 60fps.

Realme 2 Pro

The Realme 2 Pro features a 16-megapixel (f/1.7) primary camera with a 2-megapixel secondary camera at the rear. The 4K videos captured using these cameras result in softer looking videos and good colors. The details and the dynamic range is acceptable enough to be shared over social platforms.
