Samsung is reportedly working on a new A-series smartphone called the Galaxy A82. Last week, the handset was spotted at the Geekbench’s database. Now, the handset has received approval from the Bluetooth SIG authority (via).
The Bluetooth SIG listing states that the Galaxy A82 5G moniker is associated with model number SM-826S. The same variant was spotted at Geekbench in the previous week. The Bluetooth certification reveals that the handset supports Bluetooth 5.0 with LE (Low Energy). No other specifications can be found mentioned in the listing.
The Galaxy A82’s Geekbench appearance revealed that it could be powered by the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 855+ chipset that fueled flagship phones back in 2019. The listing also revealed that the phone has 4 GB of RAM and Android 11 OS. Devices are known for going official around a month after appearing at Bluetooth SIG. Hence, there is a possibility that the Galaxy A82 may go official at some points in the coming month.
The Galaxy A82 will be succeeding the Snapdragon 730G powered Galaxy A80 handset that debuted back in April 2019. While the SD855/855+ chip is old, it is certainly an upgrade as compared to the predecessor model. The major attraction of the A80 was that it sported a notch-less screen and a swivel rear camera module. It remains to be seen whether the Galaxy A82 continues to sport the same design.
The Galaxy A80 came with specs like a 6.7-inch S-AMOLED FHD+ display, an in-screen fingerprint reader, a 3,700mAh battery with 25W fast charging support, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of built-in storage, and a rear camera system featuring a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a TOF 3D lens.
