Earlier, Samsung announced a new budget series smartphones, new “A series” line-up. But on the top of this series, Samsung recently announced Galaxy A80, which comes with the rotating triple sensor camera.
The A80 remarks the high definitions of technological innovations and revolutions. The phone also comes with a Samsung’s Infinity Display due to which it gets 90% of screen to body ratio.
Design and Display
Galaxy A80 comes with a fine brush metallic look, and a triple sensor camera rotating on the top. Both sides of the phone have an attractive curved glass, and the sensors on the back are arranged horizontally, same as that of the flagship S series. It has a fingerprint mounted display and comes in Ghost White, Phantom Black and Angel Gold colour variants.
Samsung Galaxy A80 features a 6.7 inch Super AMOLED capacitive display with a resolution of 1080 X 2400 making it feature an aspect ratio of 20:9. The screen has no dew drop notch, or full notch, which makes the screen bezel less giving eye-soaring experience to the user.
Unlike, any other Samsung Flagship smartphones, there is no dust or water resistance. A80 doesn’t feature stereo speakers or a headphone jack, which is very unlikely of Samsung as this is what they are really popular off.
Galaxy A80 Internal Storage and Processor
Galaxy A80 is the first smartphone ever to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chip. It is an octa-core processor in which 2 cores are Kryo 460 Gold is reportedly working at 2.2 GHz, and the rest is Kryo 460 silver clocked at 1.7 GHz. Like Samsung’s previous smartphones, this is as same as the biggest flagships in the terms of Adreno 618 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
The only variation the A80 comes with is of 8 GB Ram and 128 GB Internal Storage. There is no other higher capacity in the terms of internal storage, which makes it limited and oddly against the manners of Samsung. There is no SD card, which backfires when expanding the storage.
The phone has Android 9.0 Pie with One UI of Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Camera
The a80 ‘s triple sensor rotating camera comes with a main 48 MP main sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide with the sensor and the third one is a time of flight sensor.
The rotating camera of the Galaxy A80 is making news to everyone’s ears and as it portrays, saves much of the space on the front screen and the hardware. And, as for the rotating camera, the majority of the people are concerned regarding its long-lasting durability.
The Galaxy a80 48 MP sensor is the same which comes with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, but its price is three times lesser.
Battery and Pricing
The Galaxy A80 comes with a 3700 mAh big battery that supports 25W fast charging. The phone is priced at $730 and expected to go on sale in May.
