Samsung has unveiled a phone in its midrange Galaxy A series that features a new reversible camera system, the Galaxy A80. The phone's sole camera array automatically flips around when toggled into selfie mode and consists of a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a time-of-flight sensor. The latter of which can be used for facial recognition and depth mapping for better portrait photos.
Because there's no need for a separate, dedicated front-facing camera, the Galaxy A80's 6.7-inch Super AMOLED New Infinity Display has no notch or hole punch.
Otherwise, the specs are pretty straightforward. The phone has a 3,700 mAh battery, which supports fast charging at 25 watts, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Like the other forthcoming A-series phones, the A80 also has an on-screen fingerprint scanner.
