Samsung Galaxy A80 launched with mechanical sliding rotating cameras.
The phone sports a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display.
The phone runs on Snapdragon 730G, which is specially tuned for gaming.
After months of build-up and weeks of rumour-based reports, Samsung India has launched the Galaxy A80 smartphone (First Impressions), its seventh device in the Galaxy A lineup in 2019. The USP of the phone is its rotating triple camera with 48MP sensor. The phone also has a FHD+ Super AMOLED display that measures 6.7-inch diagonally. The screen is essentially the largest ever on a Samsung smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 is priced at Rs 47,990 and will be available for pre-orders from July 22 to 31. Consumers who pre-book can avail a one-time screen replacement. Additionally, as part of the launch offer, consumers who purchase Galaxy A80 are eligible for a 5-percent cashback on Citibank credit cards. The phone will go on sale from August 1 across all retail stores, e-Shops, Samsung Opera House, and all major leading online channels. It will be available in three colours: Ghost White, Phantom Black and Angel Gold.
“Galaxy A80 offers premium features built for digital natives with the world’s first rotating triple camera with 48MP. We are moving from the ‘era of selfie’ to the ‘era of live’. Built to drive this evolution, the new Galaxy A80 offers innovations with Samsung’s New Infinity Display, and Samsung Pay, enhancing consumer’s overall experience,” Aditya Babbar, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said in a statement.
The Galaxy A80 is housed in an aluminium casing, which is sandwiched between glass protection. The rear glass panel curves along the edges, and the phone sports a near edge-to-edge display that stretches 6.7 inches diagonally. The panel delivers a resolution of 1080x2400 pixels and a 20:1 aspect ratio. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone and it is powered by a 3700mAh battery with 25W fast charging tech. The handset is equipped with Samsung Pay, which is secured by military-grade Knox security.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A80 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, which is tuned specifically for gaming. There’s 8GB of RAM along with 128GB storage with no option to expand it. The Galaxy A80 also has the same ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor for authentication that's there on the Galaxy S10. Thanks to the piezoelectric display technology, the screen also doubles up an earpiece by sending sound vibrations while on a call. The Galaxy A80 is equipped with Dolby Atmos 360-degree surround sound audio tech.
In the camera department, the Galaxy A80 sports a triple camera stack, which includes a 48MP camera sensor with a lens having f/2.0 aperture. The primary sensor is complemented by an 8MP wide-angle sensor offering 123-degree field of view. There is a 3D ToF sensor for depth measurement. The entire camera setup along with the LED flash and the laser autofocus is housed in a separate unit made of plastic that rises up from the frame - just like the one in the Oppo Find X. The camera unit then flips over to the other side to become the front camera. Samsung claims that the entire motion takes around 1.2 seconds to complete.
Camera features include shooting Ultra Wide videos with Super Steady Mode and a 3D Depth camera for Live Focus videos. The phone can record 4K UHD videos, and has other features such as Scene Optimizer, which can recognise and enhance up to 30 scenes, and Flaw Detection, which automatically identifies glitches before a picture is clicked.
