Hong Kong – July 16, 2019 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced Galaxy A80 will be launched in Hong Kong starting from July 19. The Galaxy A80 offers compelling innovations: Samsung’s first revolutionary rotating camera, a captivating, full-screen display and an intelligent battery for users to fully engage in the Era of Live, enabling them to capture their passion and every precious moment in life. 

“Samsung has always placed our focus on customers. We understand that Millennials are increasingly using their smartphones to spontaneously capture photos or stream live videos, and share real-time experiences with their friends. Samsung is therefore introducing our first-ever innovative rotating camera, which uses a high-resolution triple camera whether it’s for taking selfies or shooting with the rear camera, bringing an unprecedented experience to the new generation,” says Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd.

Groundbreaking Rotating Camera Creates Brand-New Photo-Taking Experience

Featuring Samsung’s first rotating camera, the Galaxy A80 lets users seamlessly capture the world around them. The Galaxy A80 is equipped with 48MP F2.0 aperture lens, 123-degree Ultra Wide angle lens and ToF (Time of Flight) 3D Depth for depth measurement. When users select the selfie mode in the camera app, the three cameras will automatically pop up from the back of the phone and rotate. The innovative camera mechanism delivers the same extraordinary triple camera experience with the same high-resolution lens, front and rear, so users never have to sacrifice quality. 

With the 48MP main camera of the Galaxy A80, users can shoot magnificent images day and night. The 3D Depth camera offers Live Focus videos by scanning objects for measurement and depth through the pre-loaded “Quick Measurement” app. Built with the 123-degree Ultra Wide angle lens, the Galaxy A80 provides the same viewing angle as the human eye. In addition, the model enables intelligent camera features, including the powerful Scene Optimizer that automatically recognizes up to 30 types of scenes, and Flaw Detection that automatically identifies glitches before taking photos. Unquestionably, the Galaxy A80 will capture every precious moment. As with all flagships, the Galaxy A80 is built with the same Super Steady video mode, which greatly reduces shaking during shooting to produce smooth, professional-level action videos.

New Infinity Display Offers Immersive Multimedia Experiences

Enabled by the rotating camera, the Galaxy A80 offers an uninhibited view with Samsung’s first New Infinity Display. With this new full-screen design, users are not distracted by the front camera nor speakers, hence they are able to reap the benefits of a limitless multimedia experience. Featuring the 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy A80 brings content to life in vivid details, fully immersing users in every game, video and photo. The Galaxy A80 supports Dolby Atmos as well, providing a 360-degree audience experience when using earphones or Bluetooth speakers for an immersive entertainment experience. 

Stay Connected for Longer with Intelligent Battery

The Galaxy A80’s 3,700mAh battery and its Super-Fast Charging at 25W capabilities keep users connected for longer, letting them enjoy a seamless experience. The model also features an intelligent battery, which learns users’ daily routines and app usage patterns to optimize the phone’s power consumption, ensuring users will not miss any details. 

The Galaxy A80 is built with Intelligent Performance Enhancer, providing AI-powered performance optimization software which adjusts the battery in response to users’ unique patterns and facilitates the function of CPU and RAM. With Intelligent Performance Enhancer, the phone works more smoothly and apps are launched more quickly when needed. The Galaxy A80 deploys the impressive Octa Core processor with 8GB RAM, and also supports Samsung Pay[1] and Smart Octopus, facilitating users’ daily routines with enhanced performance. 

To fulfil the new generation’s pursuit of trendiness, the Galaxy A80’s ergonomic composition offers a comfortable grip for convenience. Meanwhile, to complement users’ individualistic styles, the Galaxy A80 comes in three colors: Angel Gold, Ghost White and Phantom Black. The Angel Gold color includes elements of pink, while the Ghost White option consists of shades of blue, so unique color effects will be created upon different light directions and reflections.
