(ThyBlackMan.com) Samsung Galaxy S10 brings a completely different display design – a circular cutout at the top edge of the screen. Samsung calls it “Infinity O” display and it looks amazing. But recently, the company introduced a new phone, the Samsung Galaxy A80 with “New Infinity” display and this phone is a completely all-screen phone with no notch. What’s more interesting is the fact that the Galaxy A80 doesn’t have separate cameras for front and back. The phone uses the same triple-lens camera system to take pictures as the camera not only slides up, but it also rotates automatically so that you can use it for selfies and rear camera shots.

Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy A80 will be a mid-range phone. Its camera system is the most interesting feature you’ll see in a smartphone. But this new design idea has also left fans guessing about the type of back covers the phone will support. The triple-lens camera system includes a 48MP camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a TOF 3D depth camera. The ultrawide camera has a 123-degree field of vision enabling the lens to capture as wide as your eyes can see. The camera software uses artificial intelligence and refines your shots.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 packs a mid-range Snapdragon 730 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Its huge 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display looks stunning as it makes the Galaxy A80 an all-screen smartphone in true sense. The phone comes in glass and metal frame and is available in three color options black, rose gold, and white. Samsung has put a powerful 3,700mAh battery inside the phone and the best thing is it supports fast charging. The galaxy A80 has a fingerprint sensor, but unlike many other popular Android phones, the A80 has an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The other Galaxy A80 features include Bixby, Samsung’s own virtual voice assistant app which has become a standard part of its new range of smartphones. The device also supports Samsung Knox, a security application that works at hardware and software levels to protect your device from malware and malicious threats. The phone’s screen is big enough so that multitasking doesn’t feel painful. Thanks to Samsung’s Multi Window UI design that makes the experience better, especially if you are someone who uses multiple apps at once.

By completely removing the notch from the display and adding a camera system that slides and rotates, Samsung is poking fun at other smartphone makers for lacking innovation. Samsung has already introduced different types of display panels in the last two years and with the Galaxy A80, the company has finally achieved the all-screen dream that many others are still chasing.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 lacks some features and tricks which you will find on flagship phones like Samsung’s own Galaxy S10. It doesn’t have a water-resistant body, it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack, and it also has a lower resolution when compared with the phones from the Galaxy S10 family. However, the A80 has some more interesting features which you can not find in other smartphones, especially the rotating camera that works as a selfie camera and a rear shooter. One thing that will bring more customers to the Galaxy A80 is the price. The phone features mid-range hardware, meaning that Samsung won’t put it among its high-end phones that cost around $700 to $1000.

The Snapdragon 730 SoC that powers the Samsung Galaxy A80 was introduced this year, so it remains to be seen how the chip works in terms of handling applications and games. It’s too early to say whether the Galaxy A80 is the best contender in the mid-range smartphone market. The smartphone will be available in from May 29. Samsung has not put a price tag on this device yet, but it looks like this phone will surely win people who are not ready to spend money on the Galaxy S10 series smartphones.
