Today, a report emerged claiming that Samsung is working a 5G smartphone called the Galaxy A82. The handset is expected to be launched in the second half of this year.
According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy A82 may continue to use the Galaxy A80 flipping lens design. If this is the case, the Galaxy A82 will become the industry’s first 5G smartphone that supports flipping lens.
As a reminder, earlier in 2019, Samsung launched the Galaxy A80, a full-screen phone with a flip lens design. This phone uses a 6.7-inch true full-screen form with no bangs and no holes. The rear camera consists of a 48MP main lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 3D depth-of-field lens.
When the user selects the selfie mode, the camera module will automatically flip from the back of the fuselage to the front.
At present, most manufacturers in the smartphone industry choose the hole-punch screen solution. Moreover, there is also a smartphone supporting under-screen camera technology (the first under-screen camera phone is ZTE A20 5G).
In fact, we have reported about this a couple of days ago. But that time, we were focusing on that the Korean manufacturer will release a flipping lens smartphone. Now, it’s worth noting that this is going to be a 5G smartphone. We mean 5G has penetrated into every sphere. And this statement is true not only for smartphones but other niches as well. Anyways, as for the handsets, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A82 is quite interesting model because it is going to be the first 5G smartphone using a flipping lens design.
If the major manufacturers continue with this pace, 5G won’t become a distinguishing factor but a mainstream. Actually, we knew this will happen sooner or later. But we didn’t predict this will happen so quickly.
