Samsung’s first smartphone with a rotatable camera, the Galaxy A80 has seen a price cut in India. The smartphone is now available for Rs 39,990 across online and offline marketplaces ahead of Diwali. Now selling with Rs 8,000 discount, the Galaxy A80 was launched in India back in July at Rs 47,990, making it one of the contenders in the race for the best smartphone with a whacky camera mount. It is also one of the latest Galaxy A-series smartphones that Samsung has launched to date.

Samsung Galaxy A80 price in India has been revised to Rs. 39,990 on the Samsung India online store. Online marketplaces including Amazon.in and Flipkart are also reflecting the new price. Similarly, Mumbai-based retailer Manish Khatri of Mahesh Telecom suggests that the latest price cut applies to offline stores as well. We’ve reached out to Samsung India to confirm the price drop and will update this space when we hear back.

The Galaxy A80 sports a 6.7-inch FHD+ (2400×1080) Super AMOLED display with extremely slim bezels on the top and sides. Unlike other Galaxy phones this year, the Galaxy A80 does not get a notch or hole-punch cutout on the display. Samsung has used a unique rising camera mechanism in which the triple rear cameras rise up and rotate to the front.

Powering the Galaxy A80 is a Snapdragon 730G chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The handset ships with Android 9 Pie-based One UI, which comes with features like system-wide dark mode and a redesigned UI for easier one-handed use.

Coming to the cameras, the Galaxy A80 features a 48 MP f/2.0 Sony IMX 586 main sensor for crisp and detailed high-res photos, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera and ToF (Time of Flight) camera for depth mapping. All three rear cameras can be rotated to the front for crisp selfies, group selfies and portrait selfies. Galaxy A80 houses a 3,700mAh battery and supports 25W fast charging.

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
