While the Samsung Galaxy A80, on the one hand, does not seem to be part of the company’s Galaxy A series. At the same time, the Galaxy A70 looks very similar to the Galaxy A series phones.

Galaxy A70, Samsung has used the “3D Glastic” design. It appears that the back of the phone is of glass. Whereas it is just made of plastic. Because of this the phone feels better from a distance.
