  • Samsung Galaxy A Unpacked 2019 (and BlackPink) livestream details announced

And although the A80's cameras nearly assuredly won't be able to capture the same quality of images as the S10 family, it does give Samsung an opportunity to experiment in terms of design and packaging.

Personally, while I appreciate Samsung's willingness to take design risks, I think the A80's mechanism is a silly, over-engineered and failure-prone solution to a perceived problem that most people either don't care about, or can live with. I can't wait to check out the phone and see the rotating cameras in action. There's no pricing announced but one can infer it'll fall just below the Galaxy S10e at maximum. Samsung however did not confirm whether India would be part of the initial launch.

Although this camera concept may divide opinion it does mean the A80's 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED New Infinity Display offers a completely uninterrupted experience with the screen covering every corner of the phone.

As you slide the mechanism open, the smartphone's camera auto-rotates to face you. The front also houses an in-display fingerprint sensor. As a protective feature, back of the phone slides the back of the phone back into place if it falls to "minimize any potential damage". The triple camera setup includes a primary 32MP f1.7 lens along with a 123-degree ultra wide 8MP f/2.2 secondary sensor. The phone also uses a motor underneath the screen to transmit sound for phone calls instead of the traditional earpiece to maximise the screen to body ratio. When it comes to the battery, the A80 has a 3,700 mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging.

Why Meghan Markle And Prince Harry ‘Totally Unprepared’ For The Royal Baby
But insiders claim the Queen isn't thrilled with the idea of raising a baby on a vegan diet, which she Elizabeth unsafe. How could anyone judge her for that?' Doria won't stay for good, but she'll be on hand when she does visit.

The standout feature of the Galaxy A80 is without a doubt its pop-up camera.

Unfortunately, there's no 3.5mm headphone port here, so you'll be forced to use a USB-C wired headphones, Bluetooth, or a 3.5mm-to-USB-C dongle.

Samsung has gradually been shrinking the size of the bezels around its screens throughout the a year ago, starting with the thinner borders on the Galaxy S9, followed by the hole-pinch Infinity-O design on the Galaxy A8s and Galaxy S10 range. The device still has a slightly larger bottom bezel or "chin" than its very minimal side and top bezels. This effect is far more prominent on other A series phones than on the A80. Like the A80, it has a 6.7-inch Infinity display with an on-screen fingerprint scanner, but it also has a more traditional - by 2019 standards - waterdrop notch.

Performance: Even on pre-release software, the One UI on the A80 is a smooth performer.
