And although the A80's cameras nearly assuredly won't be able to capture the same quality of images as the S10 family, it does give Samsung an opportunity to experiment in terms of design and packaging. We will obviously be putting Samsung's claims to test as part of our full review process at a later stage. We have already seen the Oppo Find X with a slider mechanism and we have also seen rotating cameras in phones. Talking about the display, the Galaxy A80 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ (1080×2400) Super AMOLED full Infinity Display, which means it's nearly bezel-less, with no notch or punch-hole.

Apart from the rotating cameras, the Galaxy A80 has a glass and metal sandwich design, with the display featuring the in-display fingerprint scanner.

Meanwhile, on the front there's a single 25MP (f/2.0) snapper to quench your selfie thirst. It goes on to explain this is a trend in people who increasingly use their smartphone for sharing live interactions - and the high quality rotating camera facilitates users sharing the world around them. The camera setup is then immediately rotated to face you.

Samsung hasn't yet told us when and where the Galaxy A80 will be available, but we'll update this article when we hear more. This main camera module is actually a triple camera array consisting of a 48MP f/2.0 wide camera, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera and a 3D Depth camera.

The device might be powered by the new Snapdragon 7150 SoC along with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage. Meanwhile, your 230 bucks will probably buy you just 2 gigs of RAM and 32 of internal storage space, although 3/64 and 3/128GB versions are also coming, all equipped with microSD card slots for extra digital hoarding needs. When it comes to the battery, the A80 has a 3,700 mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging.

The hue of the device changes somewhat depending on how the light strikes the device but the "scattered light" effect on the A80 is more subdued than on other Galaxy A series devices. There is no 3.5mm audio jack in the smartphone, which will certainly irk some prospective buyers.

The Galaxy A80 is available in three colour finishes: Angel Gold, Ghost White and Phantom Black. Samsung will also be launching the A70 in India which has been announced earlier.
