The Galaxy A80 has three reversible cameras and no notch

The first phone with Samsung's New Infinity display slides apart and rotates its cameras when it's selfie time.

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. 

Samsung previously announced the Galaxy A50 and A30, the Galaxy A70 and the Galaxy A90, all of which feature a non-sliding version of the company's notchless Infinity-U displays.
