What you need to know

  • Samsung's Galaxy Quantum 2 has leaked in live images.
  • This is said to be a variant of a possible A82, and would be the most powerful A-Series phone being sold on release.
  • It is expected to retail on April 23rd in South Korea.

Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy Quantum 2, a South Korean model of the rumored Galaxy A82 and a sequel to last year's Quantum. When it launches, it'll be one of Samsung's most powerful A-Series phones, with a Snapdragon 855+ on board.

With a series of photos shared on social media site Naver (via Twitter user FrontTron), the phone will adopt the same standard design that we've seen on some of Samsung's latest phones, including the A52 and A72. It'll have the now-standard 6.7-inch 1080p screen, with a 120Hz refresh rate, continuing the trend of good cheap phones with high refresh rates. Alongside the Snapdragon 855+ processor, users will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage to keep them going. Camera-wise, it's expected to be a triple camera layout with a 64 MP main shooter. A beefy 5,000 mAh battery with an in-box fast charger round out the specs.

The Galaxy Quantum 2 is expected to launch on the 23rd of April in South Korea, though Samsung may launch the global version shortly after.

Samsung originally pitched the Quantum as a secure phone (hence the Quantum designation). It's not clear if this'll keep the quantum random number generation chip that sat in the first one, though it'll be a good differentiator from the global version when that arrives.

The Galaxy A72 isn't quite as powerful as the rumored Quantum 2, but it's an amazing phone for the price and likely the best A-series phone you can buy right now.
