Samsung had announced the Galaxy A80 smartphone with flip camera through a global unveil event in Thailand in April. The smartphone was expected to release in wider markets in May, but its arrival was delayed. Through a press release, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy A80 is now available for purchase in different markets. The handset will be also available for purchase in India later in this month.
The Galaxy A80 is available for buying in some of the European markets with 649 euros (~$732) price tag. In Malaysia, it carries a price tag of RM 2,500 (~$603). The smartphone comes in color editions like Angel Gold, Phantom Black and Ghost White.
An IANS report states that the Product Planning Group’s Head of Innovation for Samsung, Yeon Jeong Kim has revealed that the Galaxy A80 smartphone will be releasing in India in this month. A landing page for the smartphone on the Samsung India website also suggests that its arrival is close at hand. Unlike the M-series that is exclusively available for buying online, the Galaxy A80 will be purchasable through offline channels. Yeon said to IANS, “Our target is to maintain the top position in the Indian smartphone market. If we win the Indian market, we can win any global market. Indians love technology, therefore, we launch many of our products here and would continue to do so.”
