The Samsung Galaxy A82 allegedly appears in a new leak revealing its SoC, RAM and display specs
Samsung has reportedly added an upcoming phone called the Galaxy A Quantum 2 to the Google Play Console. This device will apparently launch with Android 11, to be powered by a CPU called the Qualcomm SM8150P, also known as this Snapdragon 855 Plus (or 855+).
Therefore, it seems the phone might debut as a premium mid-ranger placed at the higher end of the Galaxy A spectrum. Phones of this series normally launch with an Axx naming convention, although this alternative nomenclature does suggest it might launch in the South Korean market.
As for other regions, a sub-heading contained in this new leak suggests it could also be called the A82. It is currently touted as a successor to the slightly experimental A80, which has a sliding mechanism in order to deploy its main camera array to either the front or rear of the phone.
The A82's latest possible preview does not confirm whether it will reprise this feature or not. Then again, a front-panel image included with the alleged new Play Console listing seems not to pack a punch-hole or notch of any kind, although it might also point to a noticeable chin for the putative 2021 phone.
The Galaxy A82 has effectively been confirmed to exist thanks to earlier official leaks, and as a 5G device too. Therefore, it is plausible that it might indeed rock the 855+ on its launch. Then again, Samsung has yet to acknowledge it to date.
