Putting an end to all the rumors and leaks, Samsung has finally announced its most awaited A-series phones which are Galaxy A52, Galaxy A72 and there is another 5G variant of Galaxy A52. With these new handsets, the company is looking to add more value to the Galaxy A phones by bringing some of the high-end functionalities.
Starting with the design, the new phones equip a brand new rear panel that looks attractive with the matte finish even with the polycarbonate body. On the front side, there is a punch-hole camera in the top middle and thin bezels around the corners. The top side also equips an in-display fingerprint scanner for advanced protection.
Now as we have discussed internal protection, so we should also see that the company has provided IP67 water and dust resistance for these devices to protect them from the external environment. This was the first flagship grade functionality and there are more like this coming up. Now let’s get into their features and see how Samsung has impressed us this time:
The Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 come with a display size of 6.7-inch with an Infinity-O Super AMOLED panel that supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz, while the A52 5G variant comes with a 120Hz display.
In terms of power, both the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 are equipped with a Snapdragon 720G processor whereas the 5G version of the Galaxy A52 is powered by the Snapdragon 750G. These aren’t the flagship-grade chipsets but they are good enough to handle multitasking.
Here’s another flagship quality of these smartphones which can be noted in the camera specs. All three devices are equipped with a 64MP main camera which is optically stabilized. These phones also feature a 12MP ultra-wide and a 5MP lens for depth sensing.
