If the P34,990 (around $686) Samsung Galaxy A80 that was initially released in the Philippines comes “only” with freebies that include a Blackpink special edition pouch, case, and stand, the version that’s arriving soon is the one that Blink should get as part of their collection.
You see, the “real” Samsung Galaxy A80 Blackpink Edition will finally be available in the country in August. For a higher price, as expected.
The said version has a P49,990 ($980) price tag. Yeah, it’s the same as the Samsung Galaxy S10. However, you have to understand that the unit is already bundled with a Blackpink variant of Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds. The freebies, which cost P11,990 ($235) and P6,990 ($137), respectively, are worth P18,980 ($372) in total.
Select brick-and-mortar Samsung stores will offer it first — on August 2, we’re told. Online shops will soon follow. On Argomall’s site, it says the Galaxy A80 Blackpink Edition will be available August 7th. On Shopee, it’s shipping in 14 days, so August 12 then? On Lazada and MemoXpress Online, no release date has been stated.
