SAMSUNG Galaxy A80. The flipping camera system: Everything you need to know

Samsung has finally came up with their own way of achieving the full screen, no notch, no punch-hole, super AMOLED display.
The A80 is a complete package with a decent build, Samsung's AMOLED 6.7 inch infinity display with a full HD resolution.
Although Samsung might have cut down on the resolution part, the display still is super vivid and extra bright due to that super AMOLED technology.
The A80 comes in various colors but most of them are quite dull or pale which may be a deal breaker for some hardcore style fans.

The motorized  triple camera setup

The main highlight of the Samsung galaxy A80 is the amazing motorized triple camera setup with a 3d depth sensor, 48-megapixel main camera sensor and an ultrawide
similar to its high-end brother The Galaxy S10. The phone also supports 4k video recording. The camera offers decent stabilization in 1080p video, not as good as the
Huawei's P30 Pro but it is still good enough. Along with that, we have an option to record videos in slow-motion and super slow motion just like Samsung's high-end models.
To achieve such screen to body ratio brands often come up with bizarre ideas like a POP-UP selfie camera or a Punch hole style selfie camera. But Samsung took it to another level. They removed the whole front camera. Instead, they use a two-step - motorized mechanism by which the top of the back panel pops up and the triple camera setup undergoesa 180-degree rotation to face the user. This gives the benefit of getting good quality images and videos from the same rear cameras.
Now, this two-step mechanical process may be a failure in the long run as people have speculated but this only time will tell.

Users are loving Samsung's ONE UI that is based on Android 9 pie due to its simple and basic interface. Samsung has done a whole lot with the display apart from making it a  19.5:9 screen aspect ratio, 1080 x 2400 px Super AMOLED display. Like adding an In-Display fingerprint scanner on the bottom half and earpiece underneath the top half.
The phone doesn't have a headphone jack and no dedicated unwanted Bixby button. Also, we don't get a stereo speaker . There's just one speaker in the corner.


The Galaxy A80's battery performance and price

The phone also has a decent 3700 mah battery which isn't too massive but is also enough for a regular user. Now the slider may affect the battery life but as the phone have a
lower resolution display may result in improved battery performance. Speaking of battery, the phone also supports 25-watt USB-C fast charging. Samsung has targeted the Galaxy A80 as a mid-ranged flagship. Which is why it has the Snapdragon 830 which is a powerful chipset and will also reduce battery consumption. Samsung has launched the phone at a 679 Euro price point and its Indian price is expected to range from 29,000 to 37,000 INR.
