South Korean tech giant Samsung will soon launch the Galaxy A82 5G smartphone. It was noteworthy that the device, which appeared in the Geekbench database, was equipped with a two-year old processor.
Smartphone manufacturers are grappling with the problem of scarcity. While the trouble causes the prices to rise, it forces companies to use old chips in their products. The processor shortage had already affected Xiaomi and Realme. It also seems to injure Samsung, which can produce its own hardware platforms.
The South Korean company has to include Qualcomm processors in its devices, as the Chinese and US markets do not look favorably on smartphones with Exynos. Some information about the Galaxy A82 5G with model number SM-A826S appeared in the Geekbench database. The smartphone will feature a rotating camera system.
Return to Snapdragon 855
The device that will appear in the market as the successor of the Galaxy A80 appears to have a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB RAM and Android 11 operating system. Equipping the new model with a processor that was released two years ago and has now lost its flagship status may be the result of a chip shortage. However, let’s add that its performance is more than enough for today.
