Samsung is announcing a new Galaxy device: the new Galaxy A80. The company’s new Galaxy A80 is the first to feature its New Infinity Display, and it’s also the first to include a rotating camera design

The New Infinity Display design is Samsung’s way of saying the display doesn’t have any notch. The 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy A80 will allow you to view your phone’s screen without having any notch, and that means Samsung had to come up with a way of putting the cameras somewhere else.

And that’s where the new rotating camera comes in. Samsung’s new rotating camera design allows the cameras on the A80 to mechanically pop-up and takes pictures/videos both on the back and front since it can rotate. The camera setup features a 48MP main camera, an ultrawide 8MP camera that apparently has the same viewing angle as the human eye, and a 3D depth camera. The 3D depth camera on the A80 is capable of Live Focus videos, which basically means you will be able to take Portrait Mode videos on the device. There’s also a “Super Steady” video mode that lets you “reduce video shake” to get the perfect shot.

On the inside, you are getting an octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB of internal storage on the A80.

The device also has an Intelligent Performance Enhancer that uses AI to adjust the software, adjusting the battery, CPU and RAM of your device based on your usage to help you get the most out of your device.

For the battery, the Galaxy A80 comes with a 3,700mAh battery and Super-Fast Charging at 25W, as well as an “intelligent battery” feature that “learns your daily routine and app usage patterns” to optimise power consumption.

Coming in Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White finishes, the device will be available on May 29th. Pricing is unknown.
