Samsung showed great innovation when they launched the Samsung Galaxy A80 this year. With its class-leading mechanised rotating cameras and beautiful touch display, the device showed that Samsung can innovate. However, with the innovation, Samsung kept a hefty price on it. Which many thought will eat into its own brother to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S10e that is just a tad bit higher in price than A80. Also, then there was the case of using a less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset. However, now the company has gone ahead and reduced the price. Now one can get it at a discount of more than 20% combined with other offers.
