Galaxy A82: Samsung will launch a new smartphone with rotating photo sensor in 2021

The Galaxy A82, one of Samsung’s next mid-range smartphones, is starting to make headlines. Expected by the end of the year 2021, the phone would sign the return of the rotary photo sensor inaugurated with its predecessor, the Galaxy A80. We take stock of the first information available on the terminal.

Remember: in 2019, Samsung lifted the veil on the Galaxy A80, a mid-range smartphone equipped with an amazing rotating photo sensor. The firm slipped a triple photo sensor (48 MP + 8 MP Ultra wide-angle + TOF) in a sliding and rotating mechanism.

Thanks to this mechanism, the main camera acts as both a back sensor and a camera for selfies. Depending on the user’s needs, the device simply turns in the desired direction. The device allowed Samsung to ignore the notch or hole in the screen while ensuring quality selfies.

Samsung prepares the return of the rotating photo sensor

During our test of the Galaxy A82, we really appreciated this triple rotating photo sensor. Unfortunately, Samsung has not reused this rotating mechanism on other smartphones in its catalog since the A80. Moreover, the Seoul giant has not offered a successor to the Galaxy A80. Last year, no Galaxy A81 has been marketed.

According to information from our Dutch colleagues at Galaxy Club, Samsung is finally preparing to launch a successor to the Galaxy A80. Dubbed the Galaxy A82, the smartphone has appeared in several databases under the name SM-A826B. Samsung will present the Galaxy A82 later in the year, advance the media. Compatible with 5G, the smartphone would be equipped with an analog rotating camera. Nevertheless, Galaxy Club specifies that the development of the phone is still in its infancy. Until launch, everything may still change.

For now, we still do not know anything about the release date or the starting price of the Galaxy A82. In 2019, the manufacturer marketed the A80 in France during the month of May to a price of 659 euros. We tell you more as soon as possible about the future A82.
