To selfie or not to selfie, is no longer a question that needs asking in this generation.
In an era where all the cool kids are putting every second of their life on display, simply striking a pose for a selfie doesn’t cut it anymore. With new and improved camera technologies being unveiled every day, taking the perfect shot is now more effortless than ever. And no one knows it better than Samsung, who has just launched the new Galaxy A80 that’s practically made for the social media generation.
Designed for the digital natives who live and breathe the Internet, this all-new smartphone from the Galaxy A series ticks all the right boxes on the tech sheet: a vivid full-screen display, intelligent battery performance and most importantly, a revolutionary rotating camera. Ahead of its launch, we bring you the first look of the spanking new Samsung Galaxy A80 – straight from the A Galaxy Event in sunny Bangkok!
A super rotating camera that swivels 180 degrees
Get this: it’s a motorised rear camera with a pop-up mechanism that can flip backwards in a stuntman-like move. Simply pop open the camera app, select the front camera mode – and watch as three cameras spring to life from the back of the phone and rotate to the front. With its innovative triple-camera design, you get the same high-resolution goodness front and rear (48MP!) – all loaded into one multi-megapixel powerhouse. Perfect for upping your Instagram game!
Besides the main camera, it also comes equipped with an ultra-wide angle lens that allows you to shoot from the same viewpoint as the human eye as well as a 3D depth-sensing camera that utilises the technology for live focus videos.
Capture pro-level videos with its super steady mode
Had enough with blurry videos? With the Galaxy A80’s super steady video mode, users can easily eliminate camera shakes from even the most action-packed footage thanks to its superb image stabilisation capabilities. Another noteworthy feature is the flaw detection function, which automatically identifies glitches before you click so you’ll never miss the perfect shot.
A fully immersive multimedia experience
The Galaxy A80 packs a gorgeous 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display, which brings you stunningly vivid content in sharp clarity. Pair it with the phone’s Dolby Atmos audio for a truly immersive surround sound experience – it’s almost as if you’re watching it in the theatres!

With all these next-level features combined into one sleek body, one might be concerned that it’s more energy consuming but fret not – this bad boy has a pretty solid battery life.
It comes with a 3,700mAh battery with super-fast charging capabilities so you can go on a Netflix binge for hours on end without worrying about running out of juice. But what’s even cooler is that it’s able to adapt to your daily routine and app usage patterns in order to optimise your power consumption. How intuitive is that?
‘Nuff said, Samsung – shut up and take our money!
The new Samsung Galaxy A80 (available in Angel Gold, Ghost White and Phantom Black) will be available in Singapore in Q2 this year.
