Samsung released their Galaxy A70 and A80
If the Samsung Galaxy S10 is too rich for your taste then there are now some alternative options from the company. Samsung has just announced new entries in its A series, including the Samsung Galaxy A80 and Samsung Galaxy A70.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 looks to be the most exciting, as it packs a rotating pop-up triple-camera setup, allowing for an all-screen design and the ability to use the same cameras for selfies as you do for everything else. There’s no notch and no punch-hole, though there are still some very slim bezels of course.
The camera includes a 3D depth sensor and an ultra-wide 173-degree 8MP f/2.2 one alongside its main 48MP f/2.0 lens. The Galaxy A80 also has a fingerprint scanner built into its 6.7-inch 1080 x 2400 Super AMOLED screen, and an intelligent battery, designed to adapt power output based on your usage to maximize life. The phone has a 3,700mAh battery, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It’s set to land on May 29, though there’s no word on pricing yet.
One rank below, there’s the Samsung Galaxy A70, a phone that we actually already know lots about, as Samsung first announced it back in March, it just didn’t say how much the phone would cost or when and where you’d be able to buy it.
This handset has a 6.7-inch 1080 x 2400 Super AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner. On the back, there are three cameras – a 32MP f/1.7 main one, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide one and a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor.
Unlike the A80 however these don’t rotate, and there’s a notch at the top of its screen, which almost feels old-fashioned in the face of the A80.
It also comes with a 32MP camera on the front, a massive 4,500mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, an octa-core chipset and a microSD card slot. Not high-end then, but not far off. You’ll be able to buy it from April 26 and it’s landing in black, blue, white and coral shades.
