Samsung showed off their new Galaxy A80, the latest entry in the Galaxy A series, that features a rotating camera that acts as both the main camera and selfie camera.

The Galaxy A80 comes equipped with a 6.7in FH+ Super AMOLED screen. Unlike its siblings in the A series that use either the Infinity-V and Infinity-U, the A80 uses the notchless New Infinity display.

The camera on the A80 is a triple sensor setup that is both the main camera and selfie camera. The setup consists of a 48-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and 3D depth sensor. The ultrawide sensor on the camera setup boasts a 123° field of view.

The camera pops up and rotates on a mechanism at the top of the phone, rotating it from the main camera position to the selfie camera position, removing the need for a notch or pinhole in the screen. The camera also comes with the ability to take pictures with bokeh effect, or what Samsung calls Live Focus.

The A80 is powered by an octa-core processor, and is equipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Sadly storage is not expandable on the device, but 128GB should be more than enough storage for most users.

The device has a 3,700mAh battery and supports fast charging. Like the flagship S10 and S10+, the A80 has an on-screen fingerprint sensor. The A80 also runs on Android 9.0 Pie.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 will be available in late May or early June, and comes in three flavours; Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White.
