Samsung launched the Galaxy A70 (review) and the Galaxy A80 in Thailand last month. While the former has already gone on sale in several countries, Samsung is making all of us wait a little longer for the latter. Not much long now, though, at least not for customers in India.
We’ve learnt that Samsung is holding exclusive previews of the Galaxy A80 across the country next week. The events, where it will allow the public to play with the phone, will be held in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata on June 8 and 9.
Galaxy A80 preview in five Indian cities
Samsung is holding exclusive Galaxy A80 preview events for its fans in India next week. Samsung fans in Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad can get their hands on the new Galaxy on Saturday, June 8. People in Bangalore and Kolkata will have to wait an extra day: The Galaxy A80 arrives in your city on Sunday, June 9. The events will kick off at 06:00 PM IST (01:30 PM CET) and are open for all. You may, however, need to register your name via the Samsung Members app. Details about the venues for the events will also be shared via the app soon.
The preview events should be followed by an official launch of the device in India. The Galaxy A80 is tipped to cost somewhere between ₹40,000 (~$570) and ₹50,000 (~$720) in the country. While the phone impressed us during our short hands-on session at the launch event, whether it can justify its flagship-like price tag is something we will be able to tell you only in our full review.
