Samsung Galaxy A82 obtains Bluetooth certification, coming soon?

Samsung is reportedly working on a new A-series smartphone called the Galaxy A82. Last week, the handset was spotted in the Geekbench database. Now the handset has received the approval from the Bluetooth SIG authority (via).

The Bluetooth SIG listing shows that the name of the Galaxy A82 5G is associated with the model number SM-826S. The same variant was spotted at Geekbench the previous week. Bluetooth certification reveals that the handset supports Bluetooth 5.0 with LE (Low Energy). No other specification can be found mentioned in the list.

The Galaxy A82’s Geekbench appearance revealed that it could be powered by the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 855+ chipset that powered flagship phones in 2019. The listing also revealed that the phone has 4GB of RAM and Android 11 OS. . The devices are known to go official about a month after they first appeared in Bluetooth SIG. Therefore, it is possible that the Galaxy A82 will go official at certain times during the coming month.

The Galaxy A82 will be the successor to the Snapdragon 730G-powered Galaxy A80 handset which debuted in April 2019. Although the SD855 / 855 + chip is older, it is certainly an upgrade from the previous model. The main attraction of the A80 was that it sported a notch-less display and a swiveling rear camera module. It remains to be seen if the Galaxy A82 continues to sport the same design.

The Galaxy A80 came with specs like a 6.7-inch S-AMOLED FHD + display, in-display fingerprint reader, 3,700mAh battery with support for fast charging of 25W, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage and a rear camera system including a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 3D TOF lens.
