There have been rumors for some time about a successor to the Samsung Galaxy A80 from 2019. Now it is no longer a rumor. Today, Samsung has officially confirmed that the phone is in the works, although the confirmation appears to have been an accident. The company has listed the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G in its database of software updates, which is a clear indication that an official release is not far off.
Multiple reports claim that the Galaxy A82 5G will be a revamped version of the Galaxy Quantum 2 that was recently launched in South Korea. While renaming an old phone doesn’t seem like an attractive idea on paper, the phone’s internal hardware is pretty impressive.
The Galaxy A82 5G will come equipped with a flagship quality QHD + (1,440 x 3200 pixels) that offers a 120Hz refresh rate. Until now, Samsung has kept such pixel-dense displays with a high refresh rate unique to its flagships. However, recent Galaxy A series phones have reached new heights, so it won’t be surprising to see the Galaxy A82 5G achieve something similar.
In essence, the next Samsung phone will offer Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ SoC along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card of up to 1TB capacity. A 4500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging keeps the lights on, while an in-display fingerprint sensor handles authentication. The design is reminiscent of the Galaxy A52 5G and A72 that were released earlier this year, but the bezels will be even slimmer on the yet-to-be-announced phone.
In terms of camera hardware, the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G relies on a triple-lens setup that includes a 64MP main snapper, a 12MP sensor for ultra-wide photography, and a 5MP macro shooter. Selfies and video calling tasks will be handled by a 10MP camera. From the looks of it, the Galaxy A82 5G seems to be a pretty well-equipped smartphone and it could prove to be a popular choice among buyers looking for flagship-quality hardware without spending a lot of money.
