FFC (Front-Facing Camera)

A camera on the front of the phone, facing the user. This enables two-way video calls (such as Google Hangouts, Apple FaceTime, or Skype), and is also useful for capturing self-portraits ("selfies"). Therefore this is sometimes called a selfie camera.

The resolution and quality of the front-facing camera is often inferior to the rear, main camera.
