Samsung launches A80 with 'new infinity display'

Samsung launches A80 with 'new infinity display'

Samsung's new rotating camera design allows the cameras on the A80 to mechanically pop-up and takes pictures/videos both on the back and front since it can rotate.

A key feature of the A80 is a 6.7 inch "infinity" full-screen display which sports no notch or cut-out for a front facing camera. In this way - and unlike some other slide-out phones we've seen recently - the phone's primary camera is also the phone's selfie camera.

It combines a 48-megapixel f/2.0 camera with an ultrawide (123-degree) 8-megapixel camera and a 3D depth sensor.

Samsung engineers said that the product had been through rigorous quality testing and they were confident in the durability of the product despite the addition of the motorized rotating cameras. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, the phone houses a 3,700 mAH battery that comes equipped with "super-fast" charging capability.

The Galaxy A20e as expected isn't as interesting as the A80 and its older siblings, instead, Samsung has released the A20e as a watered-down variant of the Galaxy A20 which was announced back in March.

However, at the time of writing, Galaxy A20 was not available on Flipkart and Amazon. It Has a 6.7-inch, notch-less Super AMOLED display with a 2,400x1,080 pixel resolution.

Samsung has revealed that it is scrapping its Galaxy J Series lineup, effectively making the Galaxy A series the new front-runner for its mid-range market segment.

As with the Samsung Galaxy A80, Samsung hasn't specified which processor the A70 runs on, though there are two models, one with 6GB of RAM and the other with 8GB of RAM.

Previous slider designs from Chinese handset vendors featured standalone rear and front cameras. The Samsung Galaxy A70 will be available in Black, Blue, Coral and White colour options. Both the variants will come with a microSD slot of up to 512GB support.

This design has split opinion with Express.co.uk saying in our recent S10 review: "The only thing that slightly ruins what you are watching is the dual front-facing camera which is now punched through the screen".

To make sure users get the best viewing experience, Samsung has ditched the bezels and taken the screen to the very edges of the phone. The camera setup features a 48MP main camera, an ultrawide 8MP camera that apparently has the same viewing angle as the human eye, and a 3D depth camera.
