With the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G, Samsung will shortly be launching two direct successors to its most successful smartphone in terms of numbers. For the first time, there will also be a 5G-capable model. Prices start at 349 euros. We have (almost) all information in advance.
Apart from the platform, the Samsung Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A52 5G are basically completely identical. The 4G-only model apparently contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G with eight ARM Cortex-A55 cores up to 2.3 GHz, while the 5G model comes with the Snapdragon 750G, which only reaches 2.2 GHz, but just bring an integrated 5G modem.
Depending on the model and the respective market, Samsung wants to offer both devices not only in variants with six gigabytes of RAM and 128 GB, but also to introduce variants with a total of eight GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory. However, as is so often the case, these are not likely to be available in all countries and regions. In any case, the internal memory can easily be expanded using a microSD card.
Display with FHD+
The display of the new Galaxy A52 is always 6.5 inches and offers a pleasantly high resolution with 2400 x 1080 pixels. As in the Galaxy A72, it is a SuperAMOLED panel that is kept completely flat and an optical fingerprint reader is installed under the surface. The panel also houses the front camera behind a small hole on the upper edge, which works here with an impressive 32 megapixels. The A52 probably also has a panel with an increased refresh rate.
A newly designed combination of four cameras sits on the back, with the main sensor with 64 megapixels in the center. There is also an 8-megapixel camera, which is very likely an ultra-wide-angle camera.
There is also a 5 and a 2-megapixel sensor, although we don’t yet know for sure what purpose these two sensors serve. It would be conceivable that one sensor is used for macro images, while the second additional sensor is used for depth effects. 4K videos are possible with both models.
Both versions of the Galaxy A52 are equipped with a 4500mAh battery, which, in conjunction with the economical Qualcomm SoCs, should ensure very decent runtimes. Power is supplied via a USB Type-C port, with up to 25 watts possible. Wireless charging is missing in both variants. Dual SIM is just as standard here as Bluetooth 5.x and NFC as well as ac-WLAN. The operating system is Android 11 in conjunction with the Samsung One UI.
A small surprise with the new Galaxy A models seems to be the fact that the devices are generally certified to IP67 despite the availability of a microSD slot and a headphone connection and should therefore be largely dust and waterproof. When it comes to colours, the customer can choose between black, white, blue and lavender.
The pricing is simple: the Galaxy A52 4G costs 349 euros, while the Galaxy A52 5G costs 429 euros. The prices can of course also differ within Europe depending on the country and region.
