Samsung launches A80 with ‘new infinity display with a pop-up rotating camera in Design Week event in Milan. The front is covered with 6.7” super AMOLED display without any notch, punch-hole or tear drop featuring a full screen to its user with a rotating pop-up camera to provide the same optics for both the front and back.
According to the Trusted Reviews, Samsung has added a fingerprint scanner under the display and it even uses vibrations to make up for the lack of a speaker on the front.
Screen aside, the A80 packs 8GB RAM along with 128GB storage. There’s also a multi-camera setup on the A80 with a main 48-megapixel camera doing the majority of the heavy lifting and a secondary ultra-wide sensor. There’s a ToF sensor on the back too, which allows for much more accurate 3D depth mapping. Only the 5G version of the S10 has this sensor so it’s good to see it here.
As the camera module rotates, there’s no need for a separate front camera as you just flip the whole thing around. This makes so much sense as it doesn’t sacrifice quality for your selfies.
Samsung Galaxy A80 is powered by Qualcomm s brand-new Snapdragon 730G SoC, which is built on 8nm manufacturing process. The Snapdragon 730G is joined by Adreno 618 GPU to take care of the graphics. According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 730G is meant for mid-range gaming smartphones, so hopefully the Galaxy A80 won t be a slacker on the gaming front.
