Recently, we’d heard about the existence of the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G smartphone which will be succeeding the Galaxy A80 which was launched back in 2019.
Although there isn’t any information whether the Galaxy A82 5G will be retaining the unique rotating camera seen on the Galaxy A80, but its recent Geekbench 5 listing do shed some lights on what we can expect from this upcoming handset.
Apparently, the Geekbench listing revealed that the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G will be powered by a two-year-old Snapdragon 855+ chipset which doesn’t really came much as a surprise since Samsung seems to have likened the idea of equipping slightly older flagship chips on mid-ranger phones lately.
In fact, the Samsung Galaxy M62 which was launched in the Malaysian market this week is also equipped with a two-year-old Exynos 9825 chipset which was previously used in other flagship phones like the Galaxy Note 10 series devices.
The possible reason behind such strategy is probably to keep phone pricing more amicable while at the same time, offering a near flagship experience for its users. Such strategy however, may not be well-received by some.
Other than the Snapdragon 855+ chipset, the same listing also revealed the device has 6GB RAM in the memory department even though its likely to have a higher-end model with 8GB RAM as well. Unsurprisingly, the phone will be shipped with Android 11 out of the box.
In terms of performance, the Samsung Galaxy A82 scores 757 points and 2,630 points respectively for its single-core and multi-cores benchmark tests which are nonetheless higher than devices powered by any Snapdragon 7-series chipset.
As of now, that’s all the information we have about the Galaxy A82, but we’ll definitely hear more about this device in the next couple of weeks.
