Samsung had launched the top-end smartphones in its Galaxy A-series with Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A80. Samsung Galaxy A70 has already been launched and it has even gone on sale in India. But the Samsung Galaxy A80 has not been launched in the country so far. But according to a report, the smartphone will soon be launched in India. Samsung will be holding an exclusive preview of the Samsung Galaxy A80 in various cities in India next week. This hints the arrival of Samsung Galaxy A80 in India as soon as the first week of June. The report further states that the South Korean technology giant will be holding its launch events in different cities in India on June 8 and June 9.
According to a report by Sammobile, the company will be launching the Samsung Galaxy A80 in five different cities in India – Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. The events will take place simultaneously and will start from 6pm IST onwards. On June 8, 2019, the company will be unveiling the Samsung Galaxy A80 at Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad. While on June 9, 2019, the Samsung Galaxy A80 will be launching on Kolkata and Bengaluru. The report also mentions that the device’s launch will be open to all but the registrations might be needed on the Samsung Members application. Once the registrations have been done and once the launch date nears, the details of the venue for all the cities will be shared on the application itself.
The record further states that the preview events of the launch will be followed by the official launch of the new Samsung Galaxy A80 in India. Although no official pricing has been revealed yet by Samsung, the Galaxy A80 is expected to hold a price tag between Rs 40,000 and Rs 50,000.
As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy A80 was launched earlier in April in Thailand and it came with a good set of specifications. Some of its top-highlights were the notch-less full display camera, a powerful Exynos CPU and a good amount of RAM. But the thing which distinguishes it from other devices in the Galaxy A-series or other smartphones is its pop-up rotating camera setup which holds a triple-rear camera. The rear camera can rotate to function as a front camera as well. The company has set its price to EUR 649 (approximately Rs 50,500), so the India pricing of the smartphone should be something similar. More details about the device will be available once it launches in the Indian market.
The launch venue and the launch details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A80 haven’t been confirmed by Samsung yet. So it should be taken with a pinch of salt.
UPDATE: Samsung has denied any launch events being held in India on June 8 and 9.
