Samsung has launched the world’s first phone with a 48MP rotating camera, the Galaxy A80 in India. As a result, you get a notch-free screen to watch content and play games without any hindrances in sight. Samsung goes for a triple camera setup housed in a rotating module to cover both the sides at any given time which is quite an eye-catcher.
Samsung Galaxy A80 is priced at ₹47,990 and will go on sale starting August 1 across all major online and offline retail stores along with Samsung’s e-Shop and Opera House. Interested buyers will have an option to choose between three colour variants– ghost white, phantom black and angel gold.
Samsung Galaxy A80 specifications
The Galaxy A80 has an aluminum chassis with a Gorilla Glass 6 back and is 9.3mm thin. On the front, there’s a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution display which is further topped with Gorilla Glass 3. The slightly higher pixel ratio gives it a 20:9 aspect ratio. Also, there’s a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 618 GPU. This is further paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Samsung Galaxy A80 runs on Android 9.0 Pie-based OneUI.
The triple camera setup consists of a primary 48MP sensor with an f/2.0, an 8MP ultra-wide lens accompanied by a time-of-flight 3D sensor. As the camera is housed in a rotating shell, the same can be used for selfies.
Samsung Galaxy A80 comes with 3,700mAh battery which supports 25W fast charging.
