With high demand of better camera, almost all mobile phone manufacturers are facing a design challenge to place the camera with least compromises.
Samsung Galaxy A80 did a nice job to offer with pop-up and spin design. Something innovative. It is.
Trippe camera, pops up for normal photos and spin to face front for selfies. Good thing is, you get the same quality camera for selfies. There are, though concerns that how good will it be in longer run as after all its a mechanical movement.

Ridding the phone completely of a notch gives an uninterrupted view of your content and the Super AMOLED display here looks great. It measures a whopping 6.7-inches – matching the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – and packs in FHD+ resolution. That resolution might not be the highest but Samsung’s OLEDs remains vividly bright and seriously colourful.
Samsung’s A Series tends to sit below the flagship S Series and while that remains the case here the A80 still packs plenty of power. There’s an octa-core processor – likely one of Samsung’s own Exynos chipsets – paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. You’ve got an embedded fingerprint scanner inside the display too, however, Samsung reps weren’t able to confirm whether this was the same unit as the one in the S10.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 has a premium glass design, with a metal frame running around its circumference which feels good in the hand.
There’s no headphone jack here, with the base of the Galaxy A80 featuring the SIM tray, USB-C port and single, down-firing speaker.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 comes with a reasonably sized 3,700mAh battery and support for 25W fast charging.
