Last month we saw leaks and then a formal announcement of the Galaxy Quantum2. It's only available in South Korea, and if it's anything like the previous Samsung "Quantum" phone, that's likely to remain so. But the phone's model number is SM-A826S, indicating that a more general Galaxy A82 might make its way to international markets. Today we've seen the first evidence of that.
For about a week we've been seeing glimpses of a new, high-end variant in Samsung's Galaxy A series. This morning South Korean carrier SK Telecom made it official: the Galaxy Quantum2 is up for pre-order now. At the time of writing, the phone hasn't been announced for any other market, either under the "Quantum2" name or its alternative, leaked Galaxy A82 moniker.
Samsung's mid-range Galaxy A series is deep and wide, much more so than the mainline S series. The latest A phone to break cover is the A82, also referred to as the "Quantum2" in its leaked materials. It's a sequel to the Galaxy A Quantum announced last summer, which was a variant of the excellent Galaxy A71. The leaked specifications describe, as implied by its model number, a phone on the high end of the mid-range.
