Samsung has been filling its 2019 Galaxy A series with several smartphones. Adding another one to the range, the South Korean tech major has now introduced the new Galaxy A80.
The Galaxy A80 smartphone has its major highlight in the form of a rotatable camera, which doubles as both rear and selfie cameras. The rotating camera (a first for Samsung) allows for a complete bezel-less display, thus ensuring an edge-to-edge viewing experience.
The rotating camera module comprises three cameras; a 48MP primary snapper, an 8MP ultra wide-angle one, and a 3D depth sensor.
The whole working of the cameras is achieved once the camera app is launched. On the selection of the selfie camera, the setup will rotate due to the motors present and users will be able to take selfies.
The cameras support Live Focus mode, Super Steady video mode, Scene Optimizer, and Flaw Detection features.
While the new device brings back the nostalgia of the OPPO N3’s rotating camera which intrigued us all back then, I am not sure if the idea is interesting enough now. However, it could be for users who hate notches.
The Galaxy A80 sports a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, which the company calls New Infinity. It is powered by an octa-core processor, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM.
The device gets its fuel from a 3,700mAh battery with 25W Super Fast Charging and runs Android 9.0 Pie.
With a 3D glass and metal build, the Galaxy A80 has support for an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 comes in Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White color variants.
However, there is no word on when it will be available in India or any other market.
