Camera

Obviously, the most talked about feature of this smartphone is its camera. Unlike most pop-up camera smartphones we’ve seen, the Galaxy A80 is quite different. The selfie camera is located with the rear camera module at the back. When you’re in the camera app and change the shooting mode to selfie, the rear camera module pops up and rotate thereby facing you for that premium selfie shot. The benefits of this technology are that it helps you take quality selfies by utilizing the great camera specs at the back and also gives you an all-screen display.
