Samsung’s Galaxy A80 has been official for a couple of months now but the handset is yet to go on sale in a major market yet. That will change soon as there are more and more signs of the handset being announced on June 15 in India. For one, the Galaxy A80 pre-sale in Vietnam will also commence on June 15. Apart from that, the landing page for the handset has also gone live on Samsung’s India website with a “Notify Me” option.

The units include a 48MP f/2.0 sensor and an 8MP wide angle lens along with a TOF sensor that will do double duty as front-facing cameras as well. The pricing is also reportedly going to be aggressive as the base model will reportedly be priced at ₹39,990 (~$580).
