Samsung has released a commercial for its new midrange phone Galaxy A80, showcasing the innovative triple-lens rotating camera.
The 30-second spot features two young women as they lip sync and dance to the rhythms of the 2017 single “Write My Story” by Nashville-based indie rapper/singer, Olly Anna, and record themselves using the Galaxy A80’s rotating camera. “A is for Rotating Camera” an onscreen line reads throughout the commercial, which ends with the tagline “Built for the Era of Live”.
Unveiled on April 10th, during an event called “A Galaxy Event,” that was also live-streamed, the Galaxy A80 features a 48MP (F2.0) camera that gives you “super crisp, clean resolution for shot-worthy moments,” an Ultra Wide Camera, with incredible 123-degree field of vision, “built to capture as wide as the human eye can see, live,” and a 3D Depth Camera that “detects the subject of your photos or footage so you can keep the focus on what matters”.
The new phone has 3,700mAh battery that supports fast charging at 25W, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of onboard storage, and it includes an in-display fingerprint scanner. Available in three colors- gold, white, and black, it will launch on May 29th, joining the Galaxy A10, A20, A30, and A50. The mid-range Galaxy A series, which sits below the flagship S10e, S10 and S10 Plus in Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone portfolio, also includes the Galaxy A70, whose release date is slated for April 26th.
