Recently, according to Galaxy Club reports, Samsung is developing a 5G smartphone with the name Galaxy A82. We expect it to be unveiled in the second half of this year.
The report pointed out that the Samsung Galaxy A82 may continue to use the Galaxy A80 flipping lens design. If this is the case, then the Samsung Galaxy A82 may become the industry’s first 5G smartphone that supports a flipping lens.
Earlier in 2019, Samsung launched the Galaxy A80, which is a full-screen phone with a flip lens design.
This phone uses a 6.7-inch true full-screen form with no bangs and no hole-punch screens. In terms of cameras, there are a rear 48MP main camera + 8MP ultra-wide-angle + 3D depth-of-field lens. In addition, when the user selects the self-timer mode, the camera module will automatically flip from the back of the fuselage to the front.
As of now, ASUS Zenfone smartphones are the only smartphones with the flip-up camera design. The one big advantage of this design is that you get the same number of cameras as there are on the rear. Moreover, you also get the same set of features on the selfie front. Hence, the company doesn’t need to add another selfie camera on the front as the rear cameras double as the selfie shooters.
At present, most manufacturers in the smartphone industry choose the hole-punch screen solution. And even the under-screen camera technology has been mass-produced and commercialized (the first under-screen camera phone is ZTE A20 5G).
