Samsung announced its Galaxy A80, a slider phone with a rotating camera. This design has greatly improved the functionality of its front camera and brings it a real full screen. There is a lot going on with this swivel camera section, a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP wide-angle lens, and 3D depth-sensing equipment. However, It makes some compromise for getting this cool feature.
Is the Samsung Galaxy A80 waterproof?
On Samsung A80 official promo page, there is nothing about waterproof. Oppo Find X, a phone owning a magical motorized camera like A80, shows not waterproof at all in a video made by getdroidtips. Oppo Find X was damaged by water and malfunction in all the four tests, splash proof test, rainwater test, washing test and water immersion test. Although we are not able to find any waterproof test video of Samsung A80 at present, it’s obvious that Galaxy A80 won’t perform well on water resistant with its pop-up swivel camera.
The water resistance system of any digital product is a systematic engineering. Any improvement of water resistance means there must be matched internal structure adjustment. And every link of the waterproof technology turns out to be more strict, from design, manufacture to test. To sum up, to reach high-level waterproof, mobile phone manufacturers need to integrate multiple technologies and apply different waterproof methods on different parts. To improve the water resistance level, more and more flagship mobile phone choose to cancel the 3.5mm headphone jack. Therefore, don’t drop your Samsung Galaxy A80 into the water, or you may have to buy a new one. Whatmore, it’s better not to bring it into your bathroom when you take a shower, in case the vapour will damage the mechanical structure of the pop-up camera, or invade your phone and etch the components.
