It’s clear. Samsung is killing its own J-series and replacing it with new A-series. There’s a continuous launch of these A-series in the form of Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A40, A50 and now A80. And there are plans for filling up the rest too.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Launched With a Sliding 48MP Camera
There are phones with a slider and rotating cameras individually, but Samsung now comes with a unique phone integrating both of these mechanisms.
Enter the Samsung Galaxy A80:
With an aspect ratio of 20:9, A80 has a massive 6.7″ (1080×2400) FHD+ display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and is notchless.
Running on Android Pie with its One UI, it’s processed by Snapdragon’s 730G SoC and Adreno’s 618 GPU.
Memory stuff includes an 8GB of RAM with 128GB of ROM and is not expandable through MicroSD slots! Has a 3700mAh battery with 25W support for fast charging and is equipped with Dolby Atmos features for enhanced audio output.
Ending with the cameras, the most interesting part of the phone:
A80 has a triple rear setup of 48MP (f/2.0) as the primary lens, an 8MP (f/2.2) for ultra-wide imaging and a TOF 3D lens. The mechanism if this camera system is interesting as it has only the rear setup which rotates to serve as a front camera too.
Price and Availability:
Available in Gold, Black and White colors, A80 is priced at €649 and will go on sale globally from May 29. Translating the price to Indian rupees, it costs more than 50,000/- for A80. But the official launching price could vary from European price.
