Samsung Galaxy A80
The Samsung Galaxy A80 is a high-end Android smartphone manufactured by Samsung Electronics as part of its fifth-generation Galaxy A series lineup. It was launched at the Samsung Galaxy Event in Bangkok, Thailand on April 10, 2019, and released on May 29, 2019. Its most notable feature is its lack of a front facing camera, opting instead for a unique pop-up camera, allowing for a nearly bezel-less display.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 has a 6. 7-inch full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Super AMOLED "New Infinity Display" with a 20:9 aspect ratio; it is the first Samsung phone featuring the "New Infinity" technology. +more The phone is powered by the newly unveiled Snapdragon 730G SoC, an octa-core processor with two cores clocked at 2. 2 GHz and six cores clocked at 1. 7 GHz. It also comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Its storage cannot be expanded via a micro SD card. The phone measures 165. 2x76. 5x9. 3mm. The phone also comes with a 3700 mAh battery and 25W Super Fast Charging technology.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 is equipped with a triple-camera array consisting of a main 48-megapixel camera, flanked by an ultrawide 8-megapixel camera, and a ToF sensor. It also introduced a rotating camera; the back facing camera slides up and rotates forward automatically when put in selfie mode.
As of February 2022, it supports One UI 3.1 with Android 11. Samsung also promises 4 years of security updates for this device, so users will get updates up to 2023.
John McCann from TechRadar enjoyed the pop-up camera, notchless screen, and ample power and storage; however, he expressed concerns regarding its durability, a lack of headphone jack, and the build's thick grip. Overall, he said: "Don't be put off by the pop-up, rotating camera gimmick. +more It's fun to use, but the Samsung Galaxy A80 looks to be much more than just a one-trick pony. ".
