Samsung’s Galaxy A80 Has A Rotating Triple Camera And No Notch

Published

on

Samsung

It combines a 48-megapixel f/2.0 camera with an ultrawide (123-degree) 8-megapixel camera and a 3D depth sensor. Software-wise, that 3D Depth camera adds Live Focus videos, which scans what the cameras see for both measurement and depth — expect cool bokeh effects for selfies and more traditional shots. Samsung says its new wide-angle lens has the same viewing angle as the human eye, too. I got to handle one earlier today, and the significant part here is that the wide-angle functions can now pull double shifts for both landscapes and crowded selfies.

So this rotating camera: It sounds like the solution for getting the best camera for any situation, and freeing up the screen to be the perfect rectangle, sans notches and punch holes.

It all happens once you’re in the camera app. Press the on-screen button that typically switches between front- and rear-facing cameras and the back of the phone will extend. Tiny motors whirr, and this motion rotates the camera array as it moves, spinning the lenses and sensors around to face you.

The phone is now roughly half an inch longer, with a recessed band on the back. It’s slick. Very slick. But it does make even the P30 Pro seem reasonably sized.

I do have concerns about whether this mechanism can handle hundreds of rotations. Introducing a mechanical motion into a smartphone, with the constant threat of pocket fluff, grit and the rest, sounds like a recipe for trouble.

The mechanism got flustered if you manually tried to retract the phone down, instead of letting the A80 pull itself back, but this was early hands-on reveal day — Samsung should have ample time to sort any teething issues before May 29th. I noticed that all that technology along the upper edge of the Galaxy A80 does make the phone a little top-heavy too — be careful how you handle it.

For video, Samsung’s “super steady” video mode reduces video shake, and AI-powered Scene Optimizer will be able to enhance up to 30 scenes. Oh, and a Flaw Detection feature that will pick up on glitches before you click apparently.

There’s a 3,7000mAh battery which puts it closer to the S10 series, and it packs 25W super-fast charging like the incoming S10 5G phone and its little brother, the A70. Samsung has also mentioned that the A80 will have an “Intelligent Battery” that adapts to your routines, modifying battery use to ensure the device makes it through your day.

Related but different, there’s an “Intelligent performance enhancer” that will also optimize processor use, based on how you handle your phone. For example, if you’re using the camera app and typically follow that up with an Instagram post, your A80 will learn these habits and gear up your social media apps once you’ve launched the camera app.

I’m intrigued to see whether you’d notice this feature in real life. Many smartphones in the past have touted these power-saving AI tricks, but it’s been difficult to discern the benefit when you’re using the phone. Rounding off the features, while there isn’t any retina or facial detection, there is on-screen fingerprint biometric security.

The Galaxy A80 will launch globally in three colors: Angel Gold, Ghost White and Phantom Black. But there are no specifics just yet on US launch details.

‘Why We Haven’t Suspended President Trump’s Account’ : Twitter Explains

Published

on

President Trump

Twitter has clarified when it will enforce rules against “world leaders” saying unless Trump explicitly violates Twitter’s rules, leaving no room for interpretation, the company will do nothing.

“We focus on the language of reported Tweets and do not attempt to determine all potential interpretations of the content or its intent” Twitter said in a blog post.

Twitter’s blog post comes in the wake of a series of controversial tweets from Trump that drew condemnation from Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democrat representing California and running for the party’s nomination for president, who called for Twitter to suspend him.

“Trump’s tweets about the whistleblower represent a clear intent to harass, intimidate, or silence their voice. His blatant threats put people at risk and our democracy in danger. His account must be suspended” Harris wrote in an open letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

The company spelled out a series of “enforcement scenarios” under which it would take action, including promotion of terrorism, clear and direct threats of violence, posting private information or intimate photos, child sexual exploitation, or promoting self-harm.
