Samsung Galaxy A80: the rear camera is the front with this original rotary mechanism

By  Linky Johnson 2019-05-15 1305 0

We had heard some rumors that Samsung was preparing a new smartphone with a very peculiar sliding and rotating mechanism. Today the rumors have been fulfilled and Samsung has announced the new Galaxy A80, the most complete terminal of its Galaxy A family and that has one of the most original designs we have seen since the obsession of brands began to reduce frames.

In the Galaxy A80 , the rear camera is the same as the front thanks to its rotating mechanism . It reminds us a bit of what OPPO did in its day with the OPPO N1, although taken to the next level. As for its specifications, we can enroll it in the mid-range, as expected in the Galaxy A series. This is all that the Samsung Galaxy A80 offers.

The war against the notch has a new proposal

The design is undoubtedly the most prominent aspect of the Samsung Galaxy A80, although when it is closed does not attract too much attention. We have a completely clear front and very thin frames, including the lower one, at least in the photos, is hardly wider than the rest. And that's it, there are no more elements in the front, not even front camera, so there's no notch either. By the way, another element that is not seen is the fingerprint reader, which is hidden under the screen as we saw in the Galaxy S10.

Samsung has opted for a sliding system as we have seen in other models such as the Mi MIX 3 of Xiaomi or OPPO Find X , but have gone further. Here we have only one double camera in the back. What the mechanism does is raise the back part and then turn the module so that the rear camera becomes the front. As a picture is worth a thousand words (and a GIF even more) we better show it:

If we talk about the rotating mechanism, talk about the camera. Or better said cameras since it has triple sensor. Samsung combines a 48-megapixel main camera with aperture lens f / 2.0 and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and aperture lens f / 2.0. In addition, it includes a third 3D TOF sensor that is responsible for measuring the depth of the scene and helps a more accurate and fast portrait mode.

Following the design, the Galaxy A80 is made of metal and glass and will come in three colors; to choose between black, silver or rose gold. Regarding the size, it is not a very small mobile since it has a Super AMOLED panel of 6.7 inches with FullHD resolution, although thanks to the reduction of frames the total size does not shoot. We lack, that yes, to know the detail of the weight.

We go to the technical characteristics and here we have an unusual processor. It is the Snapdragon 730G that has eight cores in two groups: one of two cores at 2.2 GHz and another of 6 cores at 1.7 GHz. Regarding memory, there is a single version of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB capacity. A detail to emphasize is that it does not allow to expand with MicroSD.

The Galaxy A80 comes standard with Android 9 Pie decorated with the OneUI interface and has a 3,700 mAh battery. In addition, it allows fast charging up to 25W.

Versions and prices of the Samsung Galaxy A80

The Samsung Galaxy A80 has been announced at a dedicated event in Bangkok, Thailand, but will reach more countries including Spain on May 29. The only memory configuration is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of capacity, but there will be three colors: black, pink gold or silver. At the moment we do not know the price but we will update this information as soon as there are details.
