Since the phone has no dedicated selfie camera, the display is allowed to stretch far and wide.

Speaking of the display, it is phablet-sized at 6.7-inch, and it uses Super AMOLED for backlighting. The screen resolution is Full HD+ and the aspect ratio is 20:9. It is the same display used for the Galaxy A70. Powering the phone is an unspecified octa-core chipset, clubbed with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is no MicroSD slot onboard.

The Galaxy A80 runs Android 9.0 Pie with One UI. Security is provided by an in-display fingerprint sensor, while audio is enhanced by Dolby Atmos.
