Samsung Galaxy A52 and A72
We have talked at length about the Galaxy A72 and the Galaxy A52 in their respective hub articles. In case you are too lazy to read them separately, here’s a brief primer for you once again.
The Galaxy A52 is expected to house a 6.5-inch SuperAMOLED display that offers a resolution of 2,400×1,080 pixels. A recent trend in smartphones is also to provide higher refresh rates and here Samsung could go for 90 hertz or even 120 hertz. The latter was recently introduced in the mid-range in the Redmi Note 10 Pro, which also used an AMOLED display.

In addition to the battery, 5G will certainly be used in the Galaxy A52 – whether Samsung will offer an additional version here is currently unclear. First pictures also showed a quad camera, which will probably have a resolution of up to 64 megapixels. A battery with 4,500 mAh as well as an IP67 certification should round off the overall package.
The Galaxy A72 could be a slightly larger alternative to the A52. The phone is said to offer a 6.7-inch AMOLED display and be powered by a Snapdragon 720G. Again, two versions, one with 4G and one with 5G, are conceivable. Early images also show a quad camera on the back of the A72 and at 5,000 mAh the battery is said to be a bit bigger than the one used on the Galaxy A52.

Both phones could also come with four years of Android updates from Samsung. We’ll find out exactly what the new “Awesome” models offer very soon. Until then, feel free to share your expectations in the comments section below!
