Samsung’s new Galaxy A80 comes with a camera slider

Share

Samsung has refreshed its Galaxy A series and top of the range is the Galaxy A80 with an automatic rotating camera and sliding mechanism. And given that the camera is a 48-megapixel, f/2.0 sensor coupled with an ultra-wide, 8-megapixel, F2.2 sensor and a 3D depth module, it should actually be better than most selfie cameras out there, while allowing Samsung to save some component money.

Samsung's newest smartphone has a rotating rear camera system that slides up above the screen and flips over to also become the front-facing camera.

The Galaxy A80 is powered by an Octa-Core 2.2GHz Dual + 1.8GHz Hexa processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. Samsung Galaxy A70 India launch and price The Samsung Galaxy A70 is all set to be launched in India very soon, most likely this month itself. Samsung Galaxy A80 design and specs The Samsung Galaxy A80 looks like any smartphone with a full-screen display sans any notch on the front along with a triple lens camera setup at the back. A 3,700mAh battery with 25W Super-Fast Charging capabilities should keep Android 9.0 Pie running for most of the day although Samsung isn't yet discussing battery life estimates.

You'll also be able to enable this bokeh-style blur to the background of videos with the Galaxy A80 - a feature we first heard about for the Galaxy S10 5G, something we had thought would be exclusive to this handset, which has six cameras to enable this effect on the front- and rear-mounted cameras.

This is not the first time that a pop-up rotating camera has been added to a smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy A70 will be available in Black, Blue, Coral and White colour options.

Officials recently said it could take two years to identify potentially thousands of children and parents separated at the border. Nielsen did "not resign willingly", according to several reports, though she recognized her job was "in limbo" for weeks.

Samsung has not yet revealed pricing or availability, but the phone does appear to be now targeted to Asian markets.

Round the back you'll find a centralized and easy to reach fingerprint scanner, while the power and volume keys are on the right side of the A40.

Meanwhile, on the front there's a single 25MP (f/2.0) snapper to quench your selfie thirst.

Without a doubt, the A80 is the more interesting of the two new phones. In a unusual omission for Samsung, the A80 doesn't support microSD for storage expansion so 128GB is all you'll get in terms of storage capacity. This phone also doesn't feature stereo speakers, lacks support for microSD storage expansion, and tragically doesn't come with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
