BHT-M80 Android Terminal


A handheld terminal that combines mighty power, multi-functionality, and intuitive ease-of-use. It’s ideal for applications in logistics, manufacturing, retail and healthcare. And it comes with software that even non-coders will find useful for streamlining their unique workflows.

New Scanning Efficiency

Android BHT-M Series


Scan worry-free from distances of 2 inches to 5 feet.



With advanced decode engine, high-density sensor, and top-performing CPU, the BHT M80 handles up to 30 scans per second. Slash inventory time with “trace” scanning—reading multiple codes in a fluid motion.

Comfortable grip


Experience handheld ease, even when codes are overhead or below, with an ergonomically positioned sensor, large display, and modest heft (12 to 14 oz depending on choice of battery).



Codes that were previously illegible with other readers are now readable with advanced OCR (optical character recognition). Now you can:

  • Read codes through glass, wrapping film, tape, and reflective and/or crinkled surfaces.
  • Read codes that are stained, smudged, blotted, dirty, deformed, or poorly printed.
  • Advanced optical character recognition (OCR) even reads print that is blurred, stained, or distorted.

Made for Users to Love

Android 10 Operation

Android 10 Operation

Users of Android phones and tablets find operation of the BHT M80 intuitive, getting up to speed and productive quickly.

High Visibility

High Visibility

The 5-in. high-resolution display affords exceptional readability — even in full sunlight.

  • Automatically adjusts brightness for optimum visibility in any ambient light
  • Trouble-free touch operation — even with gloved hands and with water on the screen.


Ergonomic design avoids fatigue with extended use. Angled scan head is optimal for reading codes overhead and below the knees.

Convenient Recharging

Convenient Recharging

Onscreen Battery Monitor lets you know when it’s time to replace the battery. Recharge:

  • Direct via USB-C Cable
  • Via Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ Adapter
  • Contactless (with optional 5800mAh battery and cradle)

Dependable Durability 

Drop Resistant

Drop Resistant

Strong magnesium frame equipped with elastomer bumpers to absorbs shocks to resist impact damage. Tested in multiple drops from typical working heights.

  • 2,000 drops at 1.0 meter (3 ft. 3 in.)
  • 60 drops at 1.5 meters (4 ft. 11 in.)
  • 6 drops at 2.5 meters (8 ft. 2 in.)
Defies Harsh Environments

Defies Harsh Environments

Compliance with IP67 specs assures you the BHT-M80 is impervious to dust and sand and can sail through tasks in wet or damp conditions.

A Clear Choice

A Clear Choice

The tempered glass screen (DragonPro®) leads the industry with resistance to scratching, ensuring easy-on-the-eyes clarity for long-term use.

The Mighty Engine That Could

Processing Power

Processing Power

With a Qualcomm® SMD 660 CPU (64-bit Octa-Core 2.2 GHz), the BHT-M80 gives you the power to handle multiple apps and data flows simultaneously—with no compromise in performance. For example, conduct a voice call while you receive or upload scanned data, hiccup-free.

Multifaceted Connectivity

Multifaceted Connectivity

In addition to 4G LTE speed, the BHT-M80 supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and VoLTE with Google Mobile Services. With two SIM slots, it accommodates a bevy of optional apps to make communication as swift and easy as you’ve always hoped it would be.

GPS+ Enabled

GPS+ Enabled

Precise, responsive mapping and routing are at your fingertips. The BHT-M80 is a boon for terminal functions in the field, e.g., work of delivery fleets.

NFC and RFID Capability
