The Galaxy A80 is the first Samsung device that sports a rotating camera, and below you can find all the info you need about its pricing, release date, availability and hardware specifications. It's a mid-range "premium" device.
The brand new Samsung Galaxy A80 features the following specs: 6.7" Super AMOLED Infinity Display, a FullHD 1080x2400 screen resolution, 393ppi, powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 730 chipset, Adreno 618 GPU, 8GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage, no microSD slot, triple rotating camera, 3700mAh battery with 25W fast charging support, Dual-SIM support, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C 2.0, onscreen fingerprint scanner, Android 9.0 Pie and the latest One UI by Samsung.
A not so great thing about the Galaxy A80 is that it doesn't feature any headphone jack, so you will have to rely on wireless headphones in order to listen privately to your media content.
Galaxy A80 measures 165.2 x 76.5 x 9.3 mm and it is all built in a metal rame and front and back glass panels. The best, or most interesting, feature would be the rotating triple camera gimmick. The device can switch easily between front and back due to a small mechanical pop-up part. This cool feature is activated when pressing the Selfie Mode in the phone's Camera app.
The switch from a back-facing camera to a front-facing camera is done in a second, so you won't need to wait too long before the frontal camera boots up.
The Galaxy A80 was presented today, on April 10th, and it will be shipped starting with May the 29th.
It will be sold in White, Black, and Gold(that looks pink), but the availability will differ from market to market.
Samsung Galaxy A80 might not be available in the United States, as currently it has been confirmed that it will be sold in Europe, China, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Russia, and other Asian countries.
The pricing of Samsung Galaxy A80 has been set at €650, which is somewhat higher than we expected, but it should drop before the launch of the next Galaxy Note model. The device is set as a mid-range one, but the pricing is way higher than that, which might be because of the new rotating camera thing, so we can only understand Samsung's reasoning when setting it.
Tell us in comments below what you think about the Samsung Galaxy A80, and if you plan on buying one when May 29 gets here. Also, keep in mind that we're still waiting to find out if the device will be released in the United States, too.
