Samsung Electronics said on July 2 its Galaxy A80 midrange smartphone will go on sale in select markets this month packed with a rotating camera and an uninterrupted display.
The Galaxy A80 features a 6.7-inch notchless, edge-to-edge screen, which was made possible with a rotating camera system that flips around for different modes.
It packs a 48-megapixel main camera, as well as an 8-megapixel ultrawide secondary camera and a time-of-flight sensor, which enables facial recognition and depth mapping for better selfies, Samsung said. A super steady video mode reduces shake to ensure smooth action videos.
The phone, which was first introduced in Thailand in April, will be made available in select markets this month, including Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Latin America. South Korea is not included in the list.
Samsung has been focused on improving the camera functions in its smartphones of all ranges as more people consider picture quality one of the most important features when buying a new device.
