The Samsung Galaxy A80 smartphone features three cameras on the back… but they can also flip around to face the front of the phone, allowing you to use the same three-camera system to snap selfies or live stream video.
First unveiled in April, the Samsung Galaxy A80 is now available for purchase in some regions including parts of Europe, Africa, Central America, and Asia. It’s unclear if or when it’ll be available in North America.
The phone’s camera system consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera (123 degrees) and a 3D depth-sensing camera.
When you want to flip the cameras to face forward, the screen slides down so that the portion of the phone housing the cameras is above the display, and they can rotate to work as selfie cameras.
While the cameras are the most unusual thing about the phone, the rest of the Samsung Galaxy A80’s specs don’t look bad. The smartphone has a 6.7 inch, 2400 x 1800 pixel Super AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 3700 mAh battery, 25W fast charging, and an octa-core processor. It also features an in-display fingerprint sensor and a slim-bezel design.
I just bought a Samsung A20 with a 6.4 inch screen. It barely fits in my front pocket. The 6.7 inch A20 screen would be way too big for pocket cary.
Ugh they removed the headphone jack on this one too… Just when I was actually considering this over the Galaxy S10 too. I really love the idea of the rear camera flipping over to become a front camera. It’s about time we get a high quality front camera. But the lack of the headphone jack is kind of a deal breaker for me unfortunately. I wish Samsung didn’t give in to trends started by Apple so easily. I’m hoping the S11 will have a headphone jack, otherwise, I’ll probably end up upgrading my S9 to an S10 in 2020.
Phone is around $600 USD and comes with s730.
That 20:0 aspect ratio sure looks limitless
