The camera relies on a slide mechanism which, when activated, rotates the camera to make it a selfie camera.
Given this camera design, Samsung was able to produce the first phone with the “New Infinity” screen.
The camera is triple and consists of a 48-megapixel f / 2.0 main camera, a 8-megapixel rear-view camera with f / 2.2 aperture and a third time ToF (Time-of-Flight) sensor.
The screen has no cut, no notch, no hole punch and has a 6.7-inch FHD + resolution of 1080 × 2400 Super AMOLED pixels.
We have also seen slide show phones in the past but never in this form. The Oppo N1 is approaching somewhat because it had a 13-megapixel rotating camera.
“Pop-up” cameras have recently become a trend in trying to produce “notch” phones like Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X. Slider phones have also been reinstated as Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.
Along with this camera configuration, the Galaxy A80 has 3.700 mAh battery and 25W fast charging technology. It also comes with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of memory and a fingerprint scanner under the screen. The phone is available in three colors: gold, white and black.
Galaxy A80 goes on sale on May 29, joining the Galaxy A10, A20, A30 and A50, which have been unveiled in recent months. Prices for the Galaxy A80 and A70 remain unknown.
