"The Galaxy A80 offers premium features for digital natives who want to fully engage in the "era of Live", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 is interesting because when you're trying to take a selfie the rear camera slides up and then rotates 180-degrees allowing it to work as both the selfie camera and the rear-facing shooter. The new design makes way for a pop-up rotary camera in the A80/A90.

Other features that you'll find on this mid-range monster include a 3,700mAh fast charging battery, embedded fingerprint scanner under the screen, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

However, it's possible the Galaxy A80 is the first glimpse at the design we can expect to see roll out to the next batch of flagship smartphones from Samsung.

Aimed at a younger user with a penchant for video recording and streaming, the A80 has a unique rotating triple camera system that helps it stand out in a year of phones with pop-up cameras.

It is backed by a 3,700mAh battery with super fast charging technology.

The S10 5G has a reflective glass back with a whopping four-camera setup, which includes an ultra-wide-angle lens, wide angle lens, telephoto lens, and another 3D depth camera.

The Galaxy A80's unconventional camera is one of many workarounds phone makers have invented to nix the front-facing camera in favor of more screen real estate. Both the variants will come with a microSD slot of up to 512GB support.

I have two main issues with supersized phones: They're too big to fit in my pocket, and they can be uncomfortably heavy. On front, the Galaxy M30 has a 16-MP camera along with f/2.0 lens. Do you think the pop-up rotating camera is the ideal solution to bolster the all-screen design or is it merely a shortcut? Owners of older Galaxy Tab models might have to wait a lot longer for Android Pie and Samsung's One UI.
