Adjust Comment Print

Today was a pretty busy day for Samsung, but the world's largest smartphone vendor is actually not done announcing new stuff, quickly following up the global introduction of the eye-catching Galaxy A80 and not-too-shabby Galaxy A70 handsets with some US-specific news on the tablet release front.

There's a small, camera-sized notch in the middle of the screen, at the top which Samsung calls its Infinity-U display and it's unlikely to get in your way.

Samsung's new Galaxy A80, which was officially revealed on Wednesday morning, doesn't only feature a slide-out all-screen design, but it also packs a rotating camera, which means the same triple-lens shooter doubles both as the main camera and the selfie cam, depending on how you use it. Backed by 8GB of RAM, the Galaxy A80 comes with 128GB of internal storage.

One of the best things about the Samsung Galaxy A80's plunge at a different design is the full display.

Well, the Galaxy A80 seems like a pretty interesting phone, especially thanks to the slider design and the rotating cameras.

Samsung Galaxy A80 sports an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor and also supports biometric authentication for unlocking the phone.

Coming in Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White finishes, the device will be available on May 29th.

Samsung engineers said that the product had been through rigorous quality testing and they were confident in the durability of the product despite the addition of the motorized rotating cameras.

The rear camera setup of Galaxy M30 has a 13-MP primary sensor along with an f/1.9 lens, a 5-MP secondary sensor comprising an f/2.2 lens, and a 5-MP tertiary sensor with the same f/2.2 lens. There's no word on United Kingdom pricing or pre-orders just yet but stay tuned...

On the front, the Samsung Galaxy A80 has a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Super AMOLED display, which the company is calling "New Infinity Display". Also, the glass front and back of the phone pick up fingerprints easily, but it is equally easier to wipe them off. The phone ditches a 3.5 mm headset jack and instead uses a Type-C USB port.

Meanwhile, on the front there's a single 25MP (f/2.0) snapper to quench your selfie thirst.

The Tab A 10.1 still brings some good stuff to the table, however, including dual speakers with Dolby Atmos, a Samsung Kids UI, and Android Pie out of the box.
