Samsung has quietly launched a new toned-down version of the Galaxy A20 smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy A70 comes with a water drop notch or an Infinity-U display along with 32MP cameras on both front and back. To increase ease-of-use, a fingerprint scanner was embedded on-screen so people can intuitively unlock their phone.
The Galaxy A80 has a 3D glass back design with metal trims. That means nearly no bezels are needed at all for what Samsung calls its first "New" Infinity panel. The main shooter comprises of a 48-megapixel camera with f/2.0 camera, an ultrawide 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 and a third ToF (time-of-flight) sensor.
Although Samsung hasn't mentioned more about the phone's chipset, we suspect it will be similar to that of its pricier sibling and should come with the same memory configuration too. What are your thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy A80?
Aimed at a younger user with a penchant for video recording and streaming, the A80 has a unique rotating triple camera system that helps it stand out in a year of phones with pop-up cameras. This makes so much sense as it doesn't sacrifice quality for your selfies. The Galaxy A80 also features key Galaxy experiences including Samsung Health, Samsung Pay and more.

If you want to salivate from afar it will be launching globally from May 30. This is clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, the phone houses a 3,700 mAH battery that comes equipped with "super-fast" charging capability. The device measures 165.2×76.5×9.3mm. The battery can be charged via 25W fast charging though there is no wireless charging.
Up until now the pop-up conversation has been around whether or not it's a valid way of eliminating notches from bezel-less displays while keeping the selfie camera alive. It boots Android 9 out of the box and will hit the shelves at a later day in n Black and White options only.
