Freebies on offer for Galaxy A80 pre-order customers
The Galaxy A80 is a rather unique device because of its camera. The triple camera system slides up and can rotate to function as the front camera as well. A disassembly video showed how cleverly Samsung has engineered this system. You can check out our Galaxy A80 hands-on for our first impressions of the device. A full review will be put up in the near future.
