The last few years have seen various design styles make their debut in the tech space. Notches, punch-holes, foldable panels, pop-up camera, sliding camera and of recent, a sliding design with rotating camera as seen on the Samsung Galaxy A80. The Galaxy A80 brings a rather refreshing design style to an industry that is almost saturated with the same design style repeatedly being used by OEMs. For instance, after the iPhone X was released, notch screen became popular. Punch-hole design is also gaining ground even though we don’t see it mounting any meaningful push in terms of popularity.

The cases take into consideration the extending , rotating middle-frame camera mechanism. The cases come in different styles, including one with leather known as Slim Genuine Leather Wallet case.

That’s necessitated by the fact that the sides of the Galaxy A80 remain pretty much uncovered, except for a patch of material underneath the volume buttons. The rear segment acts as a hinge for the front segment of the case, which flips on top of the front glass.
This design gives full protection to the display. The cases are currently listed on Olixar’s website with the black and tan variant going for $21.99.
