Samsung Galaxy A80 specifications and features

The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy A80 is its sliding-rotating camera setup. The South Korean company has included triple-camera on the back of Galaxy A80 which slides out and rotates upfront to convert into a selfie camera. The setup includes a primary 48-megapixel lens with f/2.0 aperture along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle (123 degree) f/2.4 lens, and a 3D depth ToF camera.

Samsung has opted for the slide-out rotating camera setup to achieve full-screen display on the Galaxy A80. The company is calling it the New Infinity Display , which is a 20:9 aspect ratio screen with 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080 2400 pixels) Super AMOLED panel. There is no-hole in the front screen, hence Samsung is using screen vibrating technology to produce audio instead of earpiece grill. You also get ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor just like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+.
