So Samsung rapidly followed up the just-released Samsung Galaxy A70, in April 2019, with a newer phone in the same time-space, the Samsung Galaxy A80. The recently released Samsung Galaxy A80 had a great impact not just on Samsung’s A-series lineup, but in our modern definition of a smartphone, especially when it comes to camera technology.
While some other premium and modern phones feature dot front-facing cameras or popup selfie cameras, Samsung’s latest phone, the Galaxy A80 sports the world’s 1st smartphone with a rotating triple camera with 48 megapixels. This Samsung phone doesn’t just make history but packs other great features to make for an awesome midrange phone like its sibling, the Galaxy A70.
Sadly, though, the new Galaxy A80 sports a smaller 3,700mAh battery and its network connections may differ by country or carrier. All these we will talk about in this article and more concerning the features and price information of this Samsung latest phone. Sit tight. First, let’s note some key points.

Samsung Galaxy A80 Camera
With the new Galaxy A80, Samsung is proud to introduce to you a camera built for life, not just for selfies. Yes, you’ll no longer need a dedicated selfie camera because this Samsung new phone is specially designed with a flexible set of triple camera setup that slides and rotates to take both rear shots and selfie shots.
This new rotating triple camera setup (both for the rear camera and front camera mode) featured on this device consists of a 123-degree 8MP ultra-wide camera with a huge F2.2 aperture, an 80-degree wide-angle 48MP main camera with an F2.0 aperture, and a 72-degree 3D depth camera with an aperture of F1.2.
While the massive 123-degree 8MP ultra-wide camera lets you capture more in a single shot, the huge 48MP gives you super clear resolutions to capture more details in those memorable shots, and then, the 3D Depth camera gives you more control on the depth of your subject and features live focus (both on photos and videos).
The camera setup of the new Galaxy A80 is simply incredible because it is used both for the front camera and rear camera modes, letting you get more in your selfies.
Front camera mode functions:
Live Focus, Photos, Videos, Live Focus Videos, and Hyperlapyse.
Rear camera mode functions
Night, Panorama, Pro, Live Focus, Photo, Video, Live Focus Video, Super Slow motion, Slow motion, and Hyperlapse.
Yeah, we bring you the very details. Moving forward, the camera of the new Galaxy A80 is also preloaded with a quick measure app that allows you get measurement details – such as distances, lengths, depths, and space – of 3D objects by simply scanning them. This means you can measure anything instantly. This device also features Scene Optimizer, letting you optimize your photo content scene based on 30 different modes.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Display
The new Galaxy A80 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display which pushes a resolution of 1080 × 2400, that is, 395 pixels per inch. Unlike its predecessors, this new Infinity display is not just near bezel-less but has zero notches, giving you a full-frontal edge-to-edge screen with absolutely no distractions. You get more room to explore and enjoy your smartphone content (you know, like playing your favourite games…), with the Galaxy A80.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Design
Samsung’s latest phone is crafted in such a way that makes it easy to use and hold (for longer hours). The Galaxy A80 comes with a glass and metal frame and has smooth and gentle curves. This device is just effortless to handle but rocks a modern and classic look in stunning colours like Phantom Black, Angel Gold, and Ghost White. Coming to dimensions, the Galaxy A80 is 76.5mm wide, 93mm thin, and 165.2mm long. This device also weighs 220g.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Performance & Intelligence
Coupled with an amazing memory (which we’ll look into more later), this Samsung new phone features a more powerful Octa-core (2.2GHz Dual + 1.8GHz Hexa) processor and runs on the latest Android 9 Pie (Samsung UI based). With these alone, this device would have offered great performance. But there’s more – the Samsung Galaxy A80 is an intelligent machine. Samsung equipped this device with an Intelligence Performance Enhancer that recognizes your mobile habits and optimizes phone performance for the better. The Galaxy A80 also features Samsung Pay,
a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Samsung Electronics that lets users make payments using compatible phones and other Samsung-produced devices.Source: Wikipedia
Taking your smartphone intelligence to another level, this new device came along with the new Samsung Bixby functions. These functions include the Bixby Routines which lets your device adapt to your routines, the Bixby Vision which let you get the information you need faster on your device, and the Bixby Home which quickens your access to smartphone content.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Network & Connectivity
Samsung Galaxy A80 comes with a Dual-Nano-SIM connectivity. Sadly, the SIMs on this device can only take on LTE Cat.11 network connection which may differ by country and carrier. More on the network connection, you get an 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz), VHT80 MIMO rated Wi-Fi connectivity. This device also gives you the latest Bluetooth connectivity version so far, Bluetooth v5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps).
The new Galaxy A80 also has ANT+ and NFC supports. As far as location technology is concerned, this device offers GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo. A USB Type-C interface also features on this device.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Memory
Like the Galaxy A70, the new Galaxy A80 packs a huge 128GB of ROM (or inbuilt memory) to store more and an 8GB RAM to keep it running smoothly. Unfortunately, unlike its sibling, the Galaxy A70, this device has no microSD card slot, hence, no option for expandable memory.Check Lowest Price
Samsung Galaxy A80 Battery
Another ugly aspect of Samsung’s latest phone is the battery. Though the Galaxy A80 supports super-fast 25W charging which will power your device in no time, like we were hinted on earlier, the Galaxy A80 houses a 3,700mAh battery. Depending on the environment and other factors, this battery capacity might not be that bad (in fact can be sufficient in some instances). But bringing the competition to the A-series lineup, it isn’t impressive but rather retrogressive. Even the A70 features a bigger and more lasting 4,500mAh and the same 25W Super-fast charging as the Galaxy A80. Samsung Galaxy A80’s battery is really not a fun detail.
Samsung Galaxy A80 Security
This Samsung phone inherited the revolutionary on-screen fingerprint sensor from the Galaxy A70, allowing you to access your smartphone data with just a tap on the screen. While this on-screen fingerprint sensor will keep your smartphone data safe until you are inclined to use them, you still get other lock type alternatives like Pattern, PIN, or Password with the Galaxy A80.
To tighten up your smartphone security, this device features Samsung’s Secure Folder (a secure space on the device to keep content such as apps, photos, movies, and files private using fingerprint scanning) and Knox protection (a protection technology built into your device hardware and software from the start for real-time monitoring and protection of your device against malware and malicious threats).
Samsung Galaxy A80 Sensors
Featured on the Galaxy A80 is an Accelerometer, an On-screen fingerprint sensor, a Gyro sensor, a Geomagnetic sensor, RGB light sensor, a Hall sensor, and a Proximity sensor. These sensors contribute to the overall sensitivity and connectivity of this device.Check Lowest Price
Samsung Galaxy A80 camera…..Oh! I’m sorry, we talked about that earlier. I just can’t help but find the flexible and lovely rotating triple camera setup very impressive. The idea of having a triple selfie camera actually blew me away.
On the other hand, like me, you wish you didn’t have to see the smaller 3,700mAh and no microSD card slot parts right? Yeah, it will really suck for those who were expecting more from the battery, expandable memory option, and network of this phone, Galaxy A80. But what to do! We bring you every necessary detail here (good/bad) so you can make the right choices. So what do you think about this article on the features, spec, and price information of the new Samsung Galaxy A80? Tell us all about your thoughts in the comments.
