technical data sheet of characteristics and price

23 mayo, 2021

We had heard some rumors that Samsung was preparing a new smartphone with a rather peculiar sliding and rotating mechanism. Today the rumors have come true and Samsung has announced the new Galaxy A80, the most complete terminal of its Galaxy A family and that it has one of the most original designs that we have seen since the obsession of brands to reduce frames began.

On the Galaxy A80, the rear camera is the same as the front one thanks to its rotating mechanism. It reminds us a bit of what OPPO did in its day with the OPPO N1, although taken to the next level. As for its specifications, we can enroll it in the mid-range, as expected in the Galaxy A series. This is all that the Samsung Galaxy A80 offers.

The war against the notch has a new proposal

Samsung Galaxy A80

The design is undoubtedly the highlight of the Samsung Galaxy A80, although when closed it does not attract much attention. We have a completely clear front with very thin frames, including the lower one that, at least in the photos, is not slightly wider than the rest. And that’s it there are no more elements on the front, not even a front camera, so there is no notch either. By the way, another element that is not seen is the fingerprint reader, which is hidden under the screen as we saw in the Galaxy S10.

Samsung has opted for a sliding system as we have already seen in other models such as Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 3 or the OPPO Find X, but they have gone further. Here we only have a double camera on the back. What the mechanism does is raise the rear and then rotate the module so that the rear camera becomes the front camera. As an image is worth a thousand words (and a GIF even more) we better show it:

If we talk about the rotating mechanism, we have to talk about the camera. Or rather cameras since It has a triple sensor. Samsung combines a 48-megapixel main camera with f / 2.0 aperture lens and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and f / 2.0 aperture lens. In addition, it includes a third 3D TOF sensor that is responsible for measuring the depth of the scene and helps a more accurate and fast portrait mode.

This is how TOF 3D sensors for photography work, the new mobile weapon in portraits and facial recognition

Continuing with the design, the Galaxy A80 is made of metal and glass and will come in three colors; to choose between black, silver or rose gold. Regarding the size, it is not a precisely small mobile since it has a panel 6.7-inch Super AMOLED with FullHD resolution, although thanks to the reduction of frames the total size does not shoot. We need, yes, to know the detail of the weight.

We turn to the technical characteristics and here we have an unusual processor. Its about Snapdragon 730G that has eight cores in two groups: one with two cores at 2.2 GHz and another with 6 cores at 1.7 GHz. In terms of memory, there is a single version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of capacity. A detail to note is that it does not allow to expand with MicroSD.

The Galaxy A80 comes standard with Android 9 Pie decorated with the OneUI interface and has a 3,700 mAh battery. In addition, it allows fast charging up to 25W.

Versions and prices of the Samsung Galaxy A80

The Samsung Galaxy A80 has been announced at a dedicated event in Bangkok, Thailand, but will reach more countries including Spain on next july 4 at a price of 669 euros. The only memory configuration is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of capacity, but there will be three colors: black, rose gold or silver.
