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.
