Expanding its line-up of Galaxy A smartphones in India, Samsung has launched the Galaxy A80 today.
The new handset arrives as the company's first smartphone to feature an all-screen design that has been achieved by adopting a potentially game-changing rotating camera.
The Galaxy A80 will be available for pre-ordering from July 22 to July 31.
Here's everything you need to know.
Samsung Galaxy A80: At a glance
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.
The world's first rotating triple camera
The Galaxy A80 is touted to feature the world's first rotating triple camera. The setup comprises a 48MP (f/2.0) main lens, a 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 3D Time-of-flight sensor.
This setup also serves as the front-facing camera, enabling sharp and high-quality portrait shots as well as game-changing vlogging, thanks to stabilized 4K video recording at 30fps, Live focus and Scene Optimiser support.
