Traditionally mobile phones have installed cameras in the back as main sensors, and then others, generally of worse quality, in the front to take pictures and direct videos while we see what is happening on the screen. Samsung has decided to turn the tables, never better said, with a rotating camera system.
In the new Galaxy A80, the three rear cameras of the mobile rotate 180º to point to the mobile carrier in a matter of tenths of a second. The mechanism can work since the cameras rise a certain distance in a sliding base that is activated automatically by the mobile.
The triple camera game contains a 48-megapixel main sensor, in which the company has placed special emphasis on night-time photographs, a three-dimensional depth sensor to analyze the exact distance to the objects photographed and achieve better "portrait" effects. The latest sensor is located behind an angular gan lens "with the same angle of view as the human eye," according to the Korean firm.
Samsung is betting strongly on the mid-range, of which this new phone will be the benchmark of the company. To make it much more appealing they have added a 3,700 mAh battery with ultra-fast charging (no wireless charging), a 6.7-inch screen, much larger than the 6.1 inches of the recent Galaxy S10.
Except for its processor, the new Galaxy A80 will feature high-end features without any doubt: a fingerprint reader incorporated in the screen, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage that can be expanded thanks to microSD cards. If this microSD card is not used, the gap can be used to install a second nanoSIM card and enjoy two connections.
Samsung is strongly committed to the mid-range in a price segment of less than 500-600 euros to attract more customers. Its executive director, DJ Koh, has stated that "they will be the sales leaders for ten more years", just a few days after Huawei, its biggest competitor and number 2 in the global market, has exceeded sales in Spain and speaks openly to beat Samsung in two years. Lead who leads the market in 2020 or 2021, Samsung and Huawei are engaged in multiple fronts offering terminals at increasingly tight costs.
