Samsung is expected to launch three Galaxy A-Series smartphones today at three locations: Bangkok, Milan (Italy), and Sao Paulo (Brazil). A series of conflicting developments are making the rounds on the internet just a few hours ahead of the launch. It was earlier reported that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy A90, Galaxy A40 and Galaxy A20, but the Galaxy A20 was launched in India earlier this month ruling this model out from today's launch plans. The Galaxy A70 has already been launched on the company’s home turf, but the price of the phone was not revealed. It is possible that the company will finally disclose more information about different variants of the Galaxy A70 and their prices at the event. Further, just a few hours ahead of the launch, a media report has said that the company won’t launch the Galaxy A90 and instead will unveil it as the Galaxy A80.

According to Dutch site Mobielkopen, Samsung accidentally confirmed the Galaxy A80 name for the phone that will reportedly come with the sliding-rotating camera mechanism. Till now, all the reports have suggested that this phone will be called the Galaxy A90, however, Samsung Cine Club website has a phone listed with the name Galaxy A80 and model number SM-A805F. In fact, there is no phone with Galaxy A90 moniker. Moreover, a phone with same model number was found in a recent benchmark at the HTML5test website. Under this test, a smartphone browser it pitted against the browsers of other devices. The benchmark shows that the SM-A805F has an aspect ratio of 20: 9.

Not only this, the phone also made it to the Geekbench website a day ahead of the launch. The phone bears the model number Galaxy SM-A805F - similar to the one found on above-mentioned platforms. The key specs on the Geekbench shows the phone is powered by SM 6150. The chipset is coupled with 8GB RAM, and the smartphone scores 2,488 and 6,732 points in single and multi-core tests respectively.
