Samsung introduces Galaxy A80 with rotating camera for 649 euros

Samsung has added three smartphones to its updated A-series of Galaxy devices. In addition to the A20e and A40, this is the A80, a 6.7 “smartphone with extendable and rotating camera module.

The upper part of the back of the Galaxy A80 can be slid up so that the camera module can be directed forwards or backward, depending on the position of the camera app. The module thus serves as either a front or rear camera. Three sensors are integrated in the module. In addition to the 48-megapixel camera with an aperture of f / 2.0, there is a wide-angle camera of 8 megapixels with an aperture of f / 2.2 and a 3D depth sensor.

Because no fixed front camera is present, the 6.7 “screen has no notch or hole for the camera. The screen is of the AMOLED type with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. The fingerprint scanner is integrated in the screen. The processor is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SM7150 with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz for two powerful and 1.7 GHz for six less powerful cores, Samsung provides the device with 8 GB of ram and 128 GB of storage that cannot be expanded with micro-SD cards.

The Galaxy A80 has a battery capacity of 3700mAh and supports fast charging. The manufacturer releases the device in mid-May for 649 euros. The A80 appears in the colors black, white and gold. Samsung has also announced the arrival of the A20e and A40 entry-level devices. The latter is a 5.9 “smartphone with Samsung Exynos 7885-soc and was already available. The Galaxy A20e comes at the end of this month for a suggested retail price of 179 euros. Previously, the Galaxy J series was the line of entry-level smartphones from Samsung, but this one is absorbed in the A series.
