With the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 now out in the world, Samsung can move on to its next affordable midrange device. It’s probably the Galaxy A82, and a new leak of the phone gives a look at the handset, as well as details on some key specs.
Well-known tipster Mukul Sharma posted the photo and information on Twitter, after receiving it from the Google Play Console developer tool. We take a good look at the front of the device, although it is not clear if this is a real reproduction or a placeholder image.
If the image is real, the handset will use a centered hole to hold the selfie camera. There has been talk that a rotating, pop-up selfie camera is likely to match the 201
Unfortunately, the leak does not give a glimpse of the back of the Samsung Galaxy A82, perhaps a backup of the idea that the accompanying image is just a generic shot, but we expect the aesthetics to follow the lead of the other handsets that Samsung has pushed out so far this year.

On the spec side, it looks like Samsung will fit the Galaxy A82 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 chipset, which is a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 855 Plus from 2019, with some extra 5G connectivity.
It’s the same chip as in the recently launched Poco X3 Pro from Xiaomi, so expect similar performance levels. That chipset will apparently be paired with up to 6GB of RAM, making this a mid-ranger that can hold its own in terms of performance.
Other pieces of information that we can glean from this listing are that the phone will run Android 11, as you expect, and that the screen resolution will be 1080 x 2400 pixels – although there is still no word on the dimensions of the screen.
We’re still waiting to hear when the phone will see the light of day, but considering the appearance of the Galaxy A82 on the Google Play console, it should not take too long before Samsung makes all this official. By the way, you did not miss the Galaxy A81, as it was reconfigured as Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
