    Samsung Launches Galaxy A80: First Pop-up, Rotating Camera Phone

    Samsung has launched the Galaxy A80 smartphone at an event in Bangkok. The phone is the first one to feature a slider mechanism paired with a rotating camera from Samsung and is developed with an aim to improve the screen to size body ratio, without using the notch.



    Although slider phones are not new to the market, the way Samsung has approached this design is pretty impressive. Unlike the pop-up mechanism in phones like Oppo Find X, Samsung is using a reversible camera setup with a slider. So the same triple camera setup will work as front and rear camera.

    The phone looks like any other phone with slim bezels and no notch. The difference comes when you turn on the selfie mode, which automatically rotates the camera, which, to be honest, looks dope. All this happens in a split second. When the camera is off, the entire module ducks back inside the phone, presenting a beautiful display upfront.


    The Galaxy A80 has a 6.7″ Full HD+ Super AMOLED Display. It is powered by the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G. It runs Android 9.0 Pie along with Samsung’s proprietary One UI skin. It has 8GB of RAM and up to 128 GB storage. There is no support for Micro SD cards, but the device is dual-sim supported. It has a 3700 mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging.

    The Galaxy A80 has an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. There is no support for face unlock though.

    It has a triple camera setup with a huge 48 MP f2.0 main sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor and a ToF depth sensor.

    Samsung Galaxy A80 will be available in Black, Gold and White colour options.
