We have got a couple of small videos showing the new flip cameras of Samsung A80. As we reported earlier it will be a pop-up Selfie camera. However, to our surprise, there is only 1 set of cameras which doubles up as rear camera & also as Selfie Pop-up camera. This is interestingly smart from Samsung.
Almost, all the times there are separate specifications for both rear and front cameras. This makes things different as phone companies focus either of the cameras like “Selfie Phone” etc. Apart from different megapixels and F stops, even the internal software to process the pictures are different. Hence, the same picture taken from both the cameras (Rear and Front) will always be different.
For Samsung A80, the company has changed all that. They have smartly used the swivel case to move the set of cameras from rear to front. As taking photos, there is a small symbol to switch cameras from rear to front & vice versa. The moment the user will touch on switching the camera then all the cameras will swivel back and forth to the desired place.
Now, with this, the same set of cameras, pixels, F stops, sensors, software, etc are being used both the time. For selfies, there is not much distance between camera & subject which would have been handled at the software level at the time of processing the final pic.
This is much of a jazz factor for Indian consumers to show-off !!!
