Samsung has continued to expand its Galaxy A-series this year with multiple new handsets. Just recently, it launched Galaxy A72 and Galaxy A52 phones. The company is now gearing up for the next addition to the popular lineup. Dubbed as the Galaxy A82, the phone recently appeared on the Google Play Console. The listing suggests the phone will launch sooner than we had anticipated.

The listing, revealed by leakster Mukul Sharma, Samsung Galaxy A82 comes with Android 11 out-of-the-box. It has 6GB of RAM. It further revealed the phone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor.

Pocketnow points out that the chip had launched two years ago. It also noted that Qualcomm notes Snapdragon 855+ and Snapdragon 860 mobile platforms together. We recently saw Poco launching Poco X3 Pro with the same Snapdragon 860 processor. Galaxy A82 is also rumoured to come with a 64-megapixel camera, which could be Sony's popular IMX686 sensor.

Sharma also shared what appears to be a render of the Galaxy A82. The render shows the phone has a punch-hole cut-out on the front to house the selfie camera. The volume and power buttons are placed on the right edge. The render does not reveal anything else beyond it.

If the render is correct, it'd mark Samsung's departure from the rotating camera module it experimented with Galaxy A80.

Samsung Galaxy A80 had launched in India last year. The much talked about camera module on the phone featured a combination of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 3D depth sensor. It also featured 123-degree photos and videos, Live Focus shots, super slo-mo and 4K UHD video recording.

Other specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A80 are Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, a 3,700mAh battery and a 25W fast charger. It also came with an on-screen fingerprint reader, Dolby Atmos, dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C.
