Samsung Galaxy A80 gets selfie auto-focus via new OTA update

Samsung Galaxy A80

The Samsung Galaxy A80 is the premium offering of the A-series. Among the goodies introduced in this handset, the 48MP rotating camera is surely the most appealing feature of this handset. Since it uses a rotating mechanism, there’s no need for a selfie camera, leaving the gorgeous display without any interruption.

Despite the capabilities of this camera as a main rear camera, the sensor locks the focus at a certain distance when used for capturing selfies. To address this issue Samsung is rolling out a new update that introduces AutoFocus function for the Selfie camera mode.

Along with the new feature for selfie lovers, the update also introduces July 2019 security patch to the premium smartphone. Thus making it one of the few smartphones available patched with Google’s latest security bulletin.
