In a first for Galaxy devices, the Galaxy A80 is equipped with Samsung’s rotating triple camera, which provides the same high-quality lens, front and rear, so users can have the same quality selfies as rear camera pictures. The rotating triple camera allows users to record footage continuously, even if they rotate the camera during recording, so front and rear recordings can be captured in one video.
Samsung says its on-device camera technology allows users to take clear and bright photos even in low light conditions with the 48MP main camera. The Ultra-Wide Lens has a 123-degree viewing angle on rear shots.
Its 3D Depth Camera allows users to capture subjects with more depth, letting them create movie-like clips with features like Live Focus Video mode. Super Steady Video mode reduces bumps or shakes for pro-level action videos.
The handset features Samsung’s first New Infinity Display, an edge-to-edge, 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen. With a 20:9 display ratio, the New Infinity Display allows one to fully engage in multimedia content. It comes with Dolby Atmos when using earphones or Bluetooth speakers.
“Galaxy A80 is created for the Era of Live – a world where digital natives are capturing, sharing and connecting in the moment,” said Justin Hume, director of integrated mobility at Samsung South Africa. “The latest innovations in the camera, design and performance of Galaxy A80 bring a new mobile experience that fits the needs of today’s generation: always on and always ready.”
As part of the Galaxy experience, the handset features Samsung Knox, Samsung’s defence-grade security platform designed to protect, from chipset to software. In addition, Samsung Pass allows users to access apps and websites through fingerprint sensor.
The device features AI-powered performance optimisation software, which maximises the device’s CPU, RAM and battery capacity, tailoring the device to the user’s everyday needs.
Galaxy A80 comes in three colours: Angel Gold, Ghost White and Phantom Black. The Angel Gold and Ghost White options come with hints of pink and blue respectively. The device is selling now for a recommended retail price of R11799.
