The Galaxy A80 debuts the 'New Infinity Display' design to offer a notch-less, hole-less all-screen look.

And if you're wondering about the front-facing camera, well, there isn't one. However, the rear camera automatically rotates and flips to capture selfies, similar to ASUS 6Z.

Further, it offers a 6.7-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 20:9 aspect ratio, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
