“The Samsung Galaxy A80 camera module slides up from the back and rotates, allowing users to click selfies and make video calls”
Samsung Galaxy A80 (Review) was launched in India back in July at Rs 47,990. It is the world’s first smartphone to feature a rotating triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor. Now, three months after its launch, Samsung Galaxy A80 has received a permanent price cut of Rs 8,000, bringing down its current price to Rs 39,990. The new price tag can already be seen on Amazon and our retail sources have confirmed that it is applicable on offline channels too. However, the Samsung online store is not reflecting this price change just yet. The Samsung Galaxy A80’s camera module slides up from the back and rotates, allowing users to click selfies and make video calls. This offers an entirely bezel-less design doing away the notches.
