On Wednesday, Samsung announced the new Galaxy A series smartphones at its all-digital “Galaxy Awesome Unpacked” event. The highlight, of course, was the Galaxy A52, the successor to the popular Galaxy A51. The South Korean major added three premium mid-range phones to the Galaxy A series lineup, focusing heavily on the high-refresh display and imaging capabilities. If you missed the event, here is what you need to know.
Samsung Galaxy A52 5G
Samsung Galaxy A52 has a 6.5-inch Full HD + 120Hz Super AMOLED display, which is a huge leap from the standard 60Hz refresh rate on its predecessor. The maximum brightness of the device is 800 nits. It has a 32MP front snapper housed within a cutout. It is powered by an Octa-core processor along with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 1TB via a microSD card. The 5G-enabled device is backed by a 4,500 mAh battery with support for 25W charging.
On the back, it has a quad-camera setup with a 64MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. The device has stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos. Plus, it’s IP67 rated for water and dust resistance. It comes in four color variants (black, blue, purple, and white) and weighs 189 grams.
Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE
The Samsung Galaxy A52 LTE variant is not much different from the 5G variant. The only main difference is that it has a 90Hz refresh rate instead of 120Hz. Additionally, there is a 4GB RAM variant available with 128GB storage.
Samsung Galaxy A72
Samsung Galaxy A72 comes with a larger 6.7-inch Full HD + Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The maximum brightness of the Galaxy A72 also goes up to 800 nits. The front camera is the same and the quad camera setup is also the same as the Galaxy A52, with the exception of the 8MP telephoto camera that replaces the 5MP depth sensor. It also has a larger 5,000 mAh battery. It weighs 203 grams. All other specifications, including the processor, remain the same.
