The device comes to the market with decent specifications and also brings a new camera and display design concept. The biggest highlight of the handset is its rotating camera, which not only eliminates notch, but also enables high-resolution rear camera usable for selfies too. Do you think we will be seeing more of this rotating camera from Samsung? The phone sports a fingerprint reader at the back and comes with a plastic unibody design.

Samsung Electronics America Senior Vice President and Carrier Sales and Operations Chief Travis Warren said that the launching of the Galaxy Fold marks a "pivotal moment" for US users. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A70 has also been listed in India.

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy A70 smartphone as a part of its newly revamped Galaxy A-series, which has replaced the Galaxy J lineup. This means we can expect the price of the Galaxy A70 to be above the INR 25,000 mark when it comes to India.

The Galaxy A80 also features an intelligent battery which learns your daily routine and app usage patterns to optimize your phone's power consumption.

Thanks to this, Samsung Galaxy A80 can fully use its display, without being interrupted by any hole punches or notches. The new additions to the A-series lineup include the Galaxy A70, and the top-of-the-line Galaxy A80. As for the battery, it has a 3,700mAh battery that obviously supports fast charging at 25W. However, there's no microSD slot, so that 128GB is all you're getting - a surprising decision on a camera-focused phone. Samsung Galaxy A70 offers a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display and is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor. On the software front, the Galaxy A80 runs Android 9 Pie based One UI skin on top.

Galaxy A80's Dolby Atmos lets users get a 360-degree audience experience when using earphones or Bluetooth speakers. This device features a pop-up, rotating camera mode that houses the primary and secondary cameras.

The main 13MP camera has an aperture of f/1.9, while the 5MP sensor is the ultra-wide with F2.2 aperture.

The three cameras on the phone are a main 48 megapixel f/2.0 lens, an 8 megapixel ultra wide lens, and a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor. Up front, there is an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture for selfie buffs.
