Samsung A80 launch at ‘A Galaxy’ event: Here is what to expect
Samsung is rumoured to launch its first rotating camera phone – the Galaxy A80 – at its ‘A Galaxy’ event in Bangkok on April 10. The phone was speculated to launch as Galaxy A90. However, recent reports confirm that the device will be called the Samsung Galaxy A80.
The phone is said to feature a truly bezel-less display with no notch. It will also sport an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, the highlight will be its pop-up rotating triple camera system, a combination of 48MP primary camera, 8MP secondary camera and a third Time of Flight (ToF) sensor.
The camera system is said to pop-up and rotate when one opens the front camera like we saw on the Oppo N1. Of course, we will have to wait for an official confirmation to know more.

The battery is speculated to be 3,700mAh with 25W super fast charging technology. The display could double up as speaker.
