The new Galaxy A series started off with the entry level – the likes of the A32 and even A02 are already official, now it’s time to move up to the mid-range. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A52 and A72 today, both focusing on fun but are also capable all-rounders.
The A52 comes in two flavors – 4G and 5G – while the A72 arrived only as a 4G phone. Let’s have a closer look at the new models.
Samsung Galaxy A52 and A52 5G
The Samsung Galaxy A52 is the smaller of the two phones. It has a flat 6.5” display and weighs in at 189grams with a battery that should last 2 days between charges.
The display is a Super AMOLED panel with 1080p+ resolution and a high refresh rate – 90Hz for the 4G model and 120Hz on the 5G version. In High Brightness Mode this panel can reach 800 nits of brightness for better visibility even in bright sunlight.
The display is protected by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 5, the rest of the phone has additional protection in place to earn it an IP67 rating (dust tight, submersion up to 1m of water for 30 minutes).
