Samsung Galaxy A80 Brings Rotating Cameras to a Slider Design

Samsung Galaxy M20 vs Galaxy A20

Samsung stayed out of the notch race and avoided slider phones, instead unveiling the Infinity-O screen with its hole-punch camera design that can be found on the Galaxy S10 series, and more affordable Galaxy A phones.

In the hand, the Galaxy A80 is a solid, premium looking and well-built device.

The display measures 6.7-inches diagonally, which is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Super AMOLED panel appears to deliver bright, punchy colours full of vibrancy. Samsung started the year with its India-first Galaxy M series of phones in January, followed by a refreshed Galaxy A-series in February. The main shooter comprises of a 48-megapixel camera with f/2.0 camera, an ultrawide 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 and a third ToF (time-of-flight) sensor.

An irate Popovich appeared to be upset over a non-foul call Wednesday night and was given a technical by official Mark Ayotte . To his credit, Popovich had a sense of humor about it, crashing Nuggets head coach Mike Malone's media scrum.

As the camera module rotates, there's no need for a separate front camera as you just flip the whole thing around. I can't wait to check out the phone and see the rotating cameras in action. The headline A80 features an nearly bezel-less display with a rotating rear camera that can also be used for selfies, while the A70 sports a boring-by-comparison waterdrop notch. There are three lenses in the A80's rotating array; a 48MP f/2.0 main camera, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide (123°) camera, and a 3D depth camera.

Personally, while I appreciate Samsung's willingness to take design risks, I think the A80's mechanism is a silly, over-engineered and failure-prone solution to a perceived problem that most people either don't care about, or can live with. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 730G is meant for mid-range gaming smartphones, so hopefully the Galaxy A80 won't be a slacker on the gaming front. It features a slightly less powerful processor, 6 or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage (expandable), and a 4,500mAh battery. It is powered by the Exynos 7884 chipset with same 3GB RAM and 32GB storage which can be expanded up to 512GB using microSD card. There is also a 5,000mAh battery with fast charging aided by the bundled 15W charger. There is no 3.5mm audio jack in the smartphone, which will certainly irk some prospective buyers. Samsung has now officially announced that it is laying off the popular Galaxy J series moniker and merging it with Galaxy A series.

Without a doubt, the A80 is the more interesting of the two new phones.
