Samsung Will Release Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72

Samsung’s official website for UAE has revealed early details of Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 ahead of the launch event. This could happen accidentally and someone might mistakenly click the Publish button. However, these are only support pages, instead of the actual specification pages. Even so, it is a strong indication that Samsung will release these smartphones later. We could expect that the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy S71 will be available in March. Based on recent rumours and leaks about these devices, we have an idea about them. The Samsung Galaxy A52 is the direct successor of the Galaxy A51, which will be available in 4G and 4G/5G variants. It will have rectangular camera on the back and punch-hole camera on the front. Compared to Samsung Galaxy S21 series, its bezels will be somewhat thicker. We also get a visual of the Samsung Galaxy A72 and it is quite similar to the Galaxy A52. The A72 has slim lower bezel and punch hole for camera at the upper centre. If previous leaks are trustworthy, the rear of the device could be similar to the A52.

Last month, we heard that the Samsung Galaxy A52 with 4G connectivity will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset, an octa-core architecture with ARM Cortex-A55 at 2.4GHz. The 5G capable model will be more powerful with Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. Over their predecessor, both variants of Galaxy A52 should have better processing power and longer battery life. They have 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with good clarity at 2400 x 1080 resolution. It will have 90Hz refresh rate. They may also have 128GB or 256GB of internal storage and 6GB or 8GB of RAM. There will be support for up to 1TB of microSD card. It will have 5,000mAh battery, which will be enough for one whole day with normal usage. It should have 3.5mm headphone jack and Android 11 operating system. However, it is rather unfortunate that we have limited knowledge about the Samsung Galaxy A72. We know that the A72 could share the photography features of the Samsung Galaxy S21. To be specific, it will have Space Zoom that allows us to achieve 30x digital magnification.

It is a good thing to know that advanced features of Galaxy S21 will trickle down to mid-range models. It will be a boon for people who want to get exceptional photography results, without spending larger sum of money to get the Galaxy S21. As comparison, the Samsung Galaxy A71 doesn’t have telephoto camera and it only has 5MP depth sensor. Although there are no confirmed details about cameras of Galaxy A72, it could have 64MP primary, 12MP ultra wide-angle and 2MP macro cameras on the back. The front-facing camera could have 32MP resolution. There’s a possibility that it will also have 8MP telephoto camera, probably with 3x optical zoom. It is definitely less capable than the 64MP telephoto camera of the Galaxy S21, also with 3x optical zoom. It means that the A72 may not perform as well at maximum magnification.
