Samsung unveils Galaxy A80 in Sri Lanka

Samsung Sri Lanka unveiled the new Galaxy A80, with the world’s first rotating triple camera with 48 megapixels, in Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

The Galaxy A80 can be pre-ordered from 10- 21 July 2019 and it is priced at Rs. 118,990 across authorised dealers including JKOA, Softlogic, Singer, Singhagiri, Daraz.lk, WOW.lk, Click&shop.lk, and Takas.lk. Pre-orders made during this period will receive a JBL GO 2 Bluetooth speaker for free. Dialog and Mobitel are the network partners for the Galaxy A80 which is available in two colours – ghost white and phantom black. The ghost white option combines some blue characteristics, so these colours look different depending on light direction and reflection.

“Consumers are at the centre of everything we do and they search for devices personalised to their specific lifestyle. Armed with our expertise, global capabilities, and rich consumer insights, Samsung is uniquely positioned to provide innovations for everyone,” said Samsung Sri Lanka Managing Director Kevin You. “The Galaxy A Series provides a range of models so everyone can choose a device that fits their unique needs and enables them to pursue their passions. The Galaxy A80 offers premium features for digital natives who want to fully engage in the era of live.”

Created with Samsung’s first rotating camera, the Galaxy A80 lets people seamlessly capture the world around them. When users select the selfie mode in the camera app, the three cameras automatically pop-up from the back of the phone and rotate. The innovative camera mechanism delivers the same extraordinary triple camera experience with the same high-resolution lens, front and rear, so that quality does not have to be sacrificed.

With the 48-megapixel main camera, users can now shoot vivid images day and night. The Galaxy A80’s 3D depth camera offers live focus videos by scanning objects for measurement and depth. The device is built with an ultra wide-angle lens with the same viewing angle as the human eye, so your favourite views can be shared with less panning.

The “Super Steady” video mode helps users effortlessly capture content by reducing video shake to ensure smooth, pro-level action videos. With other intelligent camera features such as “Scene Optimiser” that can recognise and enhance up to 30 scenes, and “Flaw Detection’ that automatically identifies glitches before you click, you’ll never miss the perfect shot.

Samsung was awarded “The most loved Electronics Brand 2019” – compiled by Brand Finance and presented by LMD, and the “People’s Youth Choice Brand of the Year” at the SLIM-Nielsen People’s Awards 2019. Samsung has been ranked as the No.1 smartphone brand in Sri Lanka based on market share published by Stat Counter in April 2019.
