Samsung Galaxy A82 spotted on Geekbench running a two-year-old Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
Samsung's attachment with older mobile SoCs came to light when it launched the Samsung Galaxy F61 with a two-year-old Exynos 9825. The Samsung Galaxy A82 will likely follow suit too, based on its Geekbench listing. However, it will bat for team Qualcomm this time around, as it was spotted running a Snapdragon 855.
Sammobile happened to stumble upon the Samsung Galaxy A82 on Geekbench. Its single-core score of 757, multi-core score of 2,630 and 'Msmnile' motherboard all point towards the two-year-old Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. It is quite to refreshing see a Snapdragon 8xx series SoC in a Galaxy A series smartphone. Even though it may be somewhat dated now, it can still breeze through most day-to-day tasks without breaking a sweat.
The Samsung Galaxy A82 could even inherit its predecessor's (Samsung Galaxy A80) iconic swivelling cameras. We came across one patent filing for a smartphone with a sliding camera mechanism. However, patent filings mean very little in the real world. Now that the battle for whacky camera placements is over, Samsung could, in all likelihood, settle for a more tepid hole-punch selfie camera.
