Samsung has decided to take the smartphone market seriously, after having been displaced by Xiaomi in the budget segment and OnePlus in the premium segment. In this endeavour, the company has unveiled the Galaxy A80 at a starry event in Bangkok, Thailand. This phone is anything but ordinary.
The Galaxy A80 sports a 48MP primary camera on the back. However, once you switch on the front camera, a slider pops up and reverses the module to let you take selfies with the same camera prowess. We have seen the pop-up slider on phones previously, and have also seen a rotating camera, but never have we seen both. And, Samsung is the one to innovate just that.
One of the best parts of these motors is that the Galaxy A80's display does not have any notch or selfie cutout, providing you a seamless Super AMOLED panel to look at.
As for the rotating mechanism, the conversion from rear camera to selfie camera happens in a split second. The mechanism rotates 180-degrees instantly, leading us to worry about the durability of these parts. However, given a major brand like Samsung has experimented with this concept, there is a certain level of assurance.
The phone will be available in Black, Gold, and White colour options starting May 29 in select markets. Pricing is not out yet, but stay tuned to KillerFeatures for further updates.
