It’s a new design approach for Samsung that you may or may not love. If you’re a content creator or just one who loves to share bits and pieces of your life in photos and videos, you might love this innovation. Samsung considers this phone as a response to the “Era of Live” with people wanting to experience and share a moment as it happens.

The Galaxy A80 is the first full-screen Samsung device with a rotating camera. You get a triple camera setup that can be used both as your front and rear shooters. It has a 48-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 3D Depth camera to offer Live Focus for both photos and videos.

Samsung adds some of its intelligent features to make the most of this camera. It has a Super Steady mode for less shaky videos; Scene Optimizer to recognize and enhance up to 30 scenes; and Flaw Detection to identify glitches before you take a shot

The screen you get to work with here is a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. Samsung pairs this with Dolby Atmos support for 360-degree audio, whether you’re using earphones or Bluetooth speakers.

The Galaxy A80 runs on an unidentified octa-core processor (we’ll update when we get word), Android 9.0 Pie, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage (no expandable storage option here). It has a 3,700mAh battery that supports 25W Super Fast Charging. You get an onscreen fingerprint sensor for added security.

The phone comes in Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White (but no word if the white variant is coming here yet). There is no word on pricing as well but the phone is expected to drop next month around May 29.
