Samsung just held an event in Thailand which revealed (one of) their newest smartphone which comes with a rotating camera; the Samsung Galaxy A80.
“Consumers are at the center of everything we do, and they search for devices personalized to their specific lifestyle. Armed with our expertise, global capabilities and rich consumer insights, Samsung is uniquely positioned to provide innovations for everyone,”said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.
“The Galaxy A Series provides a range of models so everyone can choose a device that fits their unique needs and enables them to pursue their passions. The Galaxy A80 offers premium features for digital natives who want to fully engage in the Era of Live,”Koh added.
The A80’s most prominent feature is the rotating camera. It allows the phone to only have one camera lens which can rotate from a rear-facing camera into a front-facing selfie camera. This adaptive and dynamic camera allows for an intuitive experience with the same high-resolution lens, front and rear, so you never have to sacrifice on quality. With the 48MP main camera, users can now shoot vivid images day and night.
In order to rotate the camera, you need to slide the back side of the phone upwards. This allows the designers to equip the A80 with Samsung’s first New Infinity Display; 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen. The smartphone also sports a 3,700 mAh battery and feature an intelligent battery. It should be more than enough to keep you connected longer. And lastly, it also sports an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
