The Samsung Galaxy A80 Smartphone

The new Samsung Galaxy A80 is a smartphone specifically designed for spontaneous pictures (selfies), live video streaming (Facebook Live, and Instagram Live. It accomplishes all that with a nifty rotating camera!

Rotating Camera

Instead of separate front and rear cameras, its has a single rotating camera module with three cameras :

  • A 48 MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • An 8 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • A 3D depth sensing camera with a Live Focus video capability

By default, they point backwards, like regular triple-lens rear cameras. But if you need to take a selfie, the camera module pops-up and rotates! This allows you to take high-quality selfies with Live Focus capability!

The rotating camera module also supports three other features :

  • Super Steady video mode to reduce video shake and ensure smooth videos.
  • Scene Optimizer to recognise and enhance up to 30 scenes
