Samsung reveals the Galaxy A80
""Do you slide on all your nights like this?" - Frank Ocean"
At a live-streamed event in Bangkok, Samsung’s president DJ Koh took to the stage to unveil the latest A-series smartphones. The A80 features an almost bezel-less display with a rotating rear camera that can be used for taking selfies.
The A80, without a doubt, is the more interesting of the two new phones. Its 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display has no obstructions (ie the notch), and only very minimal bezels on all sides. Instead, it features a sliding and rotating motion that allows the triple rear cameras to face towards the user when called upon. The three cameras consist of a 48MP main sensor, 8MP ultra wide and a 3D depth sensor. Other specs include a mystery octa-core chip, a whopping 8GB of RAM, and 126GB of storage. The battery has a capacity of 3,700mAh and is capable of 25W fast charging.
At the same event, Samsung also re-announced the Galaxy A70. Like the A80, it has a 6.7-inch Infinity display with an on-screen fingerprint scanner, but with a traditional waterdrop notch. It also has a slightly less powerful processor, 6 or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage (expandable), and a 4,500mAh battery. For cameras, it's got a 32MP main, 5MP depth, and 8MP ultra wide on the back, plus a 32MP selfie cam.
Both phones will ship with Android 9 Pie with Samsung's One UI skin. The A80 launches in three colors: Angel Gold, Ghost White, and Phantom Black. The A70 comes in Black, Blue, Coral, and White.
The price is yet to be announced.
