Samsung Galaxy A82 5G With Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, 6GB RAM Spotted on Geekbench

The Samsung Galaxy A82 has been in and out of rumours intermittently, and the latest variant is exclusive to Korean operator SK Telecom.


The Samsung Galaxy A82 5G is the latest smartphone to have turned up on a Geekbench listing. Bearing internal moniker SM-A826S, the Samsung Galaxy A82 appears to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC, which is about two generations old now. Previous leaks of the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G appeared on the internet with the model number SM-A826B, which suggests that there will be multiple variants of the device, including ones that are specific to certain nations and their operators.

The Geekbench listing shows the smartphone running on 6GB RAM, which can be a base RAM variant of the Galaxy A82. Given that Samsung typically brands its smartphones with a hierarchical numbering sequence, the Galaxy A82 5G is likely aimed at offering decent performance. The smartphone has posted a single-core score of 755, and a multi-core performance score of 2,630 points in the latest Geekbench run. If this indeed turns out to be true, the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G will become the second Samsung smartphone in recent times to run on an older generation flagship processor – after the Samsung Galaxy F62 was launched recently with the two generations’ old Samsung Exynos 9825 SoC.

Other features of the Galaxy A82 5G largely remain under wraps at the moment. The initial Samsung Galaxy A80 featured a flip camera design that was quite unique, but as of now, it is entirely unclear if the purported Galaxy A82 5G may be launched with a similar camera implementation as well. Other performance or design details about the Galaxy A82 remain entirely under wraps, and given the initial stage of the leaks at the moment, it is likely that we are still at least a few months away until the Samsung Galaxy A82 5G is launched commercially – in Korea and globally.
