Samsung has set the practice of experimenting some of its new technologies on its Samsung Galaxy A series smartphones instead of the flagship S series. The Samsung Galaxy A80 launched yesterday is no exception to this. This phone has a unique triple camera setup that is of the popup type and can be turned around to click selfies. This also means there is no notch on the display giving you the whole screen.
The display size of the new Samsung Galaxy A80 is 6.7 inches and it has a full HD+ super AMOLED display with the screen resolution being 2400X1080pixels.
Now for the processor, Samsung has gone in for a brand-new CPU which Qualcomm launched just hours before Samsung made its own announcement. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G (the G signifies gaming; there is a 730SoC as well) clocks a speed of 2.2GHz. The RAM support is 8GB and the internal storage is 128GB. The Android Pie OS with the One UI skin run the device.
As mentioned, it is the camera setup that has all the attractions; the triple camera configuration has a 48MP primary sensor, accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide- angle lens plus a ToF camera forming the third. This unit pops up on top and can be rotated to take selfies as indicated earlier.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 comes with a 3700mAh battery and a 25W charger with fast charging facility. One of the highlights of this new device from Samsung is that the body is all glass and the screen protection is by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
The price of this new phone from Samsung is yet to be disclosed. Nor is it clear when the phone will be launched in India. Going by the past experience, the company will definitely bring the phone to India and on pricing the wild guess is that it would hover around the Rs 50,000 mark.
