The Samsung Galaxy A80 in 2019 was one of the most unique models in the Samsung series, but there was no sequel. That’s going to change, according to a new leak. Samsung Galaxy A82 is coming. The device is more a continuation of the Galaxy A Quantum than the A80 series.
In South Korea, this phone will be known as Samsung Galaxy Quantum2. The exciting part for the rest of the world (rumor has it) is that this hardware will be sold worldwide under the name Samsung Galaxy A82. However, the pop-up camera, which is the defining feature of the A80, will not be on this device. Instead, there will be a hole in the 6.7″ Super AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz (1080p + resolution, 800 nits brightness). Since it does not have a moving component, this phone will be water resistant.
Interestingly, the Galaxy A82 will be powered by the Snapdragon 855+ chipset. Of course, this can be a false identity state, and the chip can actually be a Snapdragon 860. In both cases, it is said that it will have 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. If we switch to the rear camera, it will have a 64 MP main module with OIS (according to the IMX686 sensor). The other two modules are still unclear. The phone will be equipped with a 4,500 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. But it will be shipped with a 15W charger. SKT’s Quantum2 retail package will also include a transparent case and headphones. Of course, the international retail package may be different. It’s highly likely that the device is 5G. However, the Snapdragon 855+ (also 860) can only be configured in 4G or with a 5G connection. Samsung and SKT will release Galaxy Quantum2 on April 23. There is no information yet on when it will go global as the Galaxy A82.
