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 Supreme Court on Saturday pronounced its verdict in the politically sensitive case of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya. The five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, includes Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.

The Ayodhya dispute, India’s longest-running historical, political and socio-religious debate, culminated on Saturday when the country’s Supreme Court ruled on the title suit of the 2.77 acre land in this Uttar Pradesh town that is claimed both by Hindus and Muslims.

There was unprecedented security in Uttar Pradesh as well as other parts of India with Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that the judgement would not be anyone’s ‘victory or defeat’ but ‘would give strength to India’s tradition of peace, unity and amity’.

Here are highlights from the verdict:

* Sharp at 10.30 am, the 5-judge bench assembled to read out the verdict.

* The bench dismissed the appeal of the Shia Waqf Board, pronouncing an unanimous verdict in the case. Shia Waqf board’s claim was over the disputed structure. Court says the land is held by the government, according to revenue records.

* SC said the disputed land was government land in revenue records.

* SC referred to the content of the lawsuit of devotee Gopal Singh Visharad — the first to approach court in 1950 — seeking right to worship at the site.

* Top court held that Nirmohi Akhara’s suit is barred by limitation, not a shebait or devotee of deity Ram Lalla.

* SC lent credence to the archeological evidence on the disputed site.

* SC said that terming the archeological evidence as merely an opinion would be a great disservice to the Archeological Society of India.

* The Apex court said the Babri mosque was not built on vacant land. The underlying structure was not an Islamic structure.

* Court said the fact that there lied a temple beneath the destroyed structure has been established by the ASI.

* ASI had not established whether temple was demolished to build the mosque.

* Faith of Hindus that Lord Rama was born at demolished structure is undisputed: SC

* Evidence suggests Hindus were in possession of outer court yard, says SC

* Extensive nature of Hindus worshipping at outer courtyard at site has been there: SC

* Evidence suggest Muslims offered Friday prayers at mosque which indicates they have not lost possession: SC

* Despite obstruction caused in offering prayers at mosque, evidence suggest that there was no abandonment: SC

* Iron railing was set up at site in 1856-1857, it suggests Hindus kept worshipping at the site: SC

* Muslims have not adduced evidence they were in exclusive possession of dispute site: SC

* Muslims were not in possession of outer courtyard of the site: SC

* UP Sunni Central Waqf Board has failed to establish its case in Ayodhya dispute: SC

* On the contrary, Hindus established their case that they were in possession of outer courtyard: SC

* SC directs allotment of alternative land — of 5 acres — to Muslims to build new mosque.

* Damage to Babri mosque was violation of law: SC

* SC asks Centre to frame scheme within 3 months and set up a trust for construction of a temple.

* SC dismisses plea of Nirmohi Akhara seeking control of entire disputed land.

* Possession of disputed 2.77 acre land will remain with central government receiver for the temple: SC

* Centre, UP govt can monitor together future actions by authorities: SC

* SC grants entire 2.77 acre of disputed land in Ayodhya to deity Ram Lalla.
