“We are moving from the ‘era of selfie’ to the ‘era of live'” — This was the core thinking behind the Samsung Galaxy A70 and A80. Finally, phones aimed towards the ever-growing culture of streaming! Let’s get to know what these phones bring to the table and what exactly they offer to the streaming community… aside from being the best phones ever because Jennie from BlackPink is endorsing it (Jennie is BlackPink Best Grill. Don’t @ me)

Same Front / Rear Camera Quality – Samsung Galaxy A80

This baby recognizes that livestream content is shot with BOTH your front and your rear camera and it’s definitely ideal that quality doesn’t suffer between the two. The answer? A ROTATING CAMERA!

Basically, the 3 cameras found at the rear of the phone flips towards the front when you’re doing a selfie picture / video! This means that the 48MP, F2.0 camera is usable for either purpose. The ultra wide function is even at your beck and call even on selfie mode! Also, the Super Steady function that allows for stable footage even without the use of a stabilizer which is a GOD SEND (if you’re a content creator, you know how useful this function is). If you wanna deliver quality content for any of your livestreams, IG/FB Stories, etc., then this phone is for you!

 

Another thing that this rotating camera affords users is the fact that you now have so much screen to use. No more notches. Just all the screen real estate you need – whether it’s for consuming content or for interacting with chat during your lives.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 will be available on May 29, 2019 in Angel Gold and Phantom Black. Price has yet to be announced.
