Samsung’s new Galaxy A80 has a couple of features that you may not have seen before. The midrange phone has a camera—nothing too new yet—that slides up from the rear of the device. But that’s not all, the camera also rotates so that it can function as a selfie camera and also as a rear-mounted camera. The slide up feature makes Samsung’s “New Infinity” display, a 6.7-inch FHD (1080 x 2400) Super AMOLED screen, possible, without having to add in any notches or holes.
The slide up feature is completely automated and has a triple-camera setup. The main camera is a 48-megapixel f/2.0 camera. On the sides of the main camera, you’ll find an ultrawide 8-megapixel f/2.2 camera and a “time of flight” sensor. The Galaxy A80 operates off of a 3,700mAh battery with fast-charging. It has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
You may be thinking that you’ve seen these features before, and you’d be right. The difference this time around is that the phone has both, which is new. The phone also features an in-display fingerprint scanner. It will be available in three colours—gold, white, and black.
