It has a camera that not only work as a rear camera also as a selfie camera.

"Consumers are spoilt for choice with so many competitively equipped handsets, meaning price looks set to be the deciding factor as name recognition carries increasingly less significance - even for a heavyweight such as Samsung", continued Mr Bhikha. The phone sports a fingerprint reader at the back and comes with a plastic unibody design.

Samsung Electronics America Senior Vice President and Carrier Sales and Operations Chief Travis Warren said that the launching of the Galaxy Fold marks a "pivotal moment" for US users. Because of that, it's nearly too easy to forget that it also announced other members of the Galaxy A series, including the smaller Galaxy A20e and the Galaxy A40.

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy A70 smartphone as a part of its newly revamped Galaxy A-series, which has replaced the Galaxy J lineup.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 price has been set at Euro 649 (roughly Rs. 50,500).

BTS’s new album "Map of the Soul: Persona" arrives on Friday
The K-Pop group dropped Map of the Soul: Persona on Friday, and it features some pretty epic collaborations. BTS reveals colla with Ed Sheeran + " Map Of The Soul: Persona " surpasses 3 million pre-order.


Besides the interesting camera, the A80 packs a powerful octavos-core processor and 8GB of RAM. The A80 packed with a decent 3,700 mAh non-removable battery featuring 25W Super-Fast Charge. Samsung will launch the Samsung Galaxy A80 on the 29th of May.

When users select the selfie mode in the camera app, the three cameras automatically pop-up from the back of the phone and rotate. The handset comes in a single version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie with OneUI on top. However, there's no microSD slot, so that 128GB is all you're getting - a surprising decision on a camera-focused phone.

The company announced the global availability of the Galaxy A70 at the time of launching the Galaxy A80 earlier this week.

For biometric authentication, the Galaxy A20e is armed with a rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner which is similar to the Galaxy A20. The Galaxy A8 features a sliding and rotating front camera setup, that includes a 48-megapixel main camera, and 8-megapixel ultra wide angle lens and a 3D depth sensor.

For optics, the A70 features a 32MP (f/1.7 aperture) primary camera coupled with an 8MP (f/2.2 aperture, 123-degree field-of-view) ultra-wide camera and a 5MP (f/2.2 aperture) depth-sensing camera. After our share of smartphones with various notch designs, it's been a race to see who can successfully hide the front facing cameras.
