Samsung Galaxy A80 has been announced by the company, and it comes with a rotating camera — a single unit that acts as both the front and rear camera — which, according to the company, is ‘built for the era of live’.

The rotating camera on the Galaxy A80 is a first in the smartphone industry, but it does raise some questions. Industry experts are a bit skeptical about the increasing reliance of smartphone manufacturers on hardware — such as the sliding and rotating camera interface seen on Samsung Galaxy A80.

“Consumers are at the centre of everything we do, and they search for devices personalised to their specific lifestyle. Armed with our expertise, global capabilities and rich consumer insights, Samsung is uniquely positioned to provide innovations for everyone,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

“The Galaxy A Series provides a range of models so everyone can choose a device that fits their unique needs and enables them to pursue their passions. The Galaxy A80 offers premium features for digital natives who want to fully engage in the Era of Live.”

The company hasn’t announced the release date or the price of the Galaxy A80 yet. We’ll update this section as soon as we have more news.
