The Samsung Galaxy A80 is the most powerful, the most generously equipped and the most authentic representative of the A series. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

The Galaxy A is a mid-range smartphone series, but the A80 is a smartphone that borders on the high-end segment. In some ways, it even surpasses the Galaxy S10 flagship.

Samsung Galaxy A80 is distinguished by a very unusual, retractable and rotating camera

The back of the house has three cameras:

  • 48 Mpix main camera with f / 2.0 aperture, which should take good pictures during the day and at night;
  • 8 Mpix camera with f / 2.2 lens with maximum width and field of view of 123 degrees;
  • camera ToF 3D for more accurate detailed diagnosis.

When the user activates the selfie mode, the housing automatically slides and the camera module rotates. Thanks to this, you can take a selfie with the main camera, which is of better quality than the usual front cameras installed on smartphones.

In addition, you can take a selfie with the wide-angle camera and take a picture or record a video with a precisely blurred background. Yes, thanks to the ToF sensor, the bokeh function also works in video mode. Until now, it was reserved for the Galaxy S10 5G.

The cameras are supported by the functions of Scene Optimizer (identifying objects in the frame and improving the quality of the image) and the mode responsible for detecting defects such as fog or closed eyes.

When recording video, the camera switches to the Super stabilization mode known from the Galaxy S10, which is responsible for image stabilization.

The Galaxy A80 has a New Infinity “bezel-less” screen with no markings

Thanks to the rotating camera mechanism used, Samsung did not have to put an additional lens on the front. This made it possible to fill almost the entire front with a display. Without penetration or hole.
