Samsung Galaxy A82 camera details revealed with a 64 MP Sony primary sensor
It is clear that Samsung will release more Galaxy A-series smartphones this year, despite having already announced the Galaxy A32, Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72. One such model is the Galaxy A82, which is expected to succeed 2019's Galaxy A80.
Little is known about the Galaxy A82, but Samsung did certify the device with the Bluetooth SIG this month. The SIG listing did not confirm much about the device, besides it SM-A826S model number and that it has a 5G modem. Now, Galaxyclub.nl has revealed that Samsung has equipped the Galaxy A82 with a 64 MP primary camera. According to the website, Samsung has chosen a Sony sensor, although it is unsure which one.
GalaxyClub.nl presumes that Samsung has gone with the IMX686, albeit without giving a reason why. Sony has the IMX682 too though, which Samsung has used in the Galaxy M31s and Galaxy M51. Little separates the IMX682 from the IMX686, though. The latter can shoot videos in 4K at 60 FPS compared to the IMX682's 30 FPS restriction, but they use the same sensor.
The Dutch website expects Samsung to only sell the Galaxy A82 in South Korea. In fact, it explicitly rules out Samsung releasing the Galaxy A82 in Europe.
