New leaked pictures and videos allegedly show the Samsung Galaxy A82But unlike its predecessor, and contrary to rumors, there is no innovative camera setup – just a series of static, rear-facing shooters.
In that sense, the Samsung A82 may be similar to what we would expect the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE to look like in a vertical line with its triple rear cameras.
We got our first glimpses of the Samsung Galaxy A82 thanks to a slew of new leaks, first in an unboxing video from SamMobile shows a cell phone called the Samsung Galaxy A Quantum 2 – a successor to the variant of the Galaxy A71, the Samsung Quantum, which was introduced in some regions last May.
The video shows that the Quantum 2 is designed similarly to the Samsung A52 and Samsung A72 announced in March with the same raised camera block but even fewer lenses on the back – a trio like that Samsung S21. This model is available in white color and has a slightly curved waterfall screen, a volume rocker button and a lock button on the right, as well as a USB-C port on the bottom (but without a 3.5 mm headphone jack). The A82 reportedly contained a 15W fast charger and cable in the box.
Another pair of leaked images (above) appeared in a post On the Chinese social media site, Weibo shows off a phone that the user claims is the Galaxy A82, which looks very similar to the Quantum 2 above – albeit in a dark gray color. They’re probably the same phone, although it’s always possible that one is a slight variation on the other and they have different specifications.
Samsung A82: Where’s the Funny Camera?
From these pictures it can be seen that the Samsung A82 arrives with a very conventional (read: immobile) camera block. We expected the phone to incorporate a more innovative camera system like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A80, which has a mechanism that flips the rear cameras forward for selfie shots.
While some leaks indicated that the A82 would have a simple hole for its front-facing camera, others have hyped a newer version solutions Like a vertical column that points to the back of the phone and rotates up to take selfie shots. Unfortunately, a hole makes a lot more sense (and is certainly cheaper to make). Unless we hear otherwise, we would expect this solution in the final phone, but we might always be surprised.
