While we wait for the Galaxy Note10Â to be available, you might want to check outÂ Samsungâ€™s latest phone, Samsung Galaxy A80. Launched on Monday, it features three cameras at the back and three at the front, but not at the same time.
The triple-lens camera on the Galaxy A80 faces backward for standard photos. But when you need selfies, the camera module slides up and rotates to the front. Itâ€™s an incredibly odd solution.
The phoneâ€™s biggest selling point has to be its flip camera. The Galaxy A80 uses a combination of a slider and Oppo-style flip camera to create a rather unique mechanism.
The Galaxy A80 flip camera mechanism packs a 48MP main shooter, 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 3D ToF sensor. These shooters also serve as your selfie cameras thanks to the flip setup, of course.
Looking at the A80 features, it has a large-screen display that features only a tiny bezel on the bottom. Thatâ€™s a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED â€œNew Infinityâ€ display with Full HD resolution and a built-in fingerprint sensor.
This mid-range smartphone packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 octa-core chip, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 3700mAh battery with 25W fast charging, and Android 9.0.
The new phone does however lack a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm port, which have been two Samsung fixtures over the years.
The price hasnâ€™t been revealed yet by Samsung but it could cost roughly around USD $780.
