“The Samsung Galaxy A80 is a mid-range offering with a swivel camera setup and Snapdragon 730G processor.”
In April, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A80 (first impressions) as its first smartphone to flaunt a truly bezel-less display in Thailand. Soon after the unveiling, a Samsung India executive announced that the phone will be released in the Indian market at some point in May, but that didn’t happen. However, now the South Korean tech giant is all set to launch the handset in India in mid-June, 91mobiles has exclusively learned from its sources in the retail chain.
As per our sources, the Samsung Galaxy A80 will be released in India at an event on June 15th. The smartphone will be available in the country in two variants, which will be priced at Rs 39,990 and Rs 44,990. Sadly, we don’t have details regarding the RAM and storage configurations of these variants for India at the moment. To recall, in Thailand, the phone was launched in a single 8GB RAM and 128GB variant. So we speculate that the model costing Rs 44,990 will have this configuration in India.
For the uninitiated, the Galaxy A80’s main highlight is a triple camera setup that slides up and rotates to double as the selfie module. The smartphone gets a glass back with a metal frame, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone comes with a 6.7-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display, and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor. Software-wise, the handset boots Android 9 Pie with the brand’s One UI 1.1 out of the box.
Talking about the camera features, the Galaxy A80 flaunts an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera at the rear, accompanied by a 48-megapixel snapper and a 3D depth shooter. The smartphone is capable of recording 4K videos at 30fps, 1080p videos at 60fps, and super slow-mo videos at 480 fps. In the front camera mode, the handset offers Hyperlapse 1080p video recording support. The connectivity options include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, and A-GPS with GLONASS. A 3,700mAh battery with 25W fast charging support keeps the whole show running.
