Samsung Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A80 are the South Korean consumer electronics, phones both share few similarities. They are dual-SIM phones, both runs android 9.0 pie. They also have same size of the Super AMOLED display – 6.7-inch – with the same full-HD+ resolution of 1080×2400 pixels in a 20:9 aspect ratio. Both have in-display, fingerprint sensors, both features Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon SoCs. The main difference is that Galaxy A80 has a swivel triple camera, a sliding, notch-free bezel-less screen, and many other mini exciting features.

Other than this difference the Samsung Galaxy A80 have 128GB of inbuilt storage, and unluckily, this is not expandable via MicroSD card. The Galaxy A70 also has 128GB of inbuilt storage, but it is expandable up to 512GB via MicroSD card – even featuring its own dedicated card slot.

Samsung was one of the few manufacturers to stay away from the screen notch as far as possible and it still is – prioritizing punch-holes sooner than dewdrop notch. So, if anyone had informed us a while ago that the company would jump deep into the experimental designs with both swivel and a slider, we would have found it highly unlikely. But a few weeks back, the leaks started on hinting what seemed doubtful to be greatly on the way.
