If you're interested, the Galaxy Tab S5e starts at $400 whereas the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is going for $230.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus comes with 5 cameras.

Samsung has launched a new smartphone which features a slider design and triple auto-rotating camera array.

The rear of the Samsung Galaxy A40 is where you'll find two cameras, a single LED flash and the fingerprint scanner. Also, the glass front and back of the phone pick up fingerprints easily, but it is equally easier to wipe them off. They'll be available on Samsung's website in addition to "major retailers". We will obviously be putting Samsung's claims to test as part of our full review process at a later stage.

Cameras aside, the Galaxy A80 boasts a big 6.7-inch, full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The A80 might also skip the front-facing physical earpiece and will likely use a solution similar to the one found in the LG G8 ThinQ.

Samsung says the Galaxy A80 is a phone created for the people engaged in "the Era of Live". As time went by, Samsung needed to create something new and innovative to overcome stiff competition from the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei. We love that there is no notch or front camera to break up the viewing experience too. This whole exercise is quite seamless and doesn't take long. Fast-forward to April, and Samsung now has its own slider design, and it's even crazier than we expected. The Snapdragon 730G is joined by Adreno 618 GPU to take care of the graphics. It features a slightly less powerful processor, 6 or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage (expandable), and a 4,500mAh battery. Both the variants will come with a microSD slot of up to 512GB support. The battery capacity of the device has been revealed to be 3,700 mAh with. There is no 3.5mm audio jack in the smartphone, which will certainly irk some prospective buyers. Still, it looks smart and functional, and is available in three colors; blue, coral (pink) and white.

The A80 was announced at an event in Milan and it arrives with one very unique feature.

The hue of the device changes somewhat depending on how the light strikes the device but the "scattered light" effect on the A80 is more subdued than on other Galaxy A series devices.

Disclosure: Samsung sponsored the correspondent's flights and hotel for the trip to Bangkok.
