Oh boy, have we got some good news today: As already revealed in the title of this article, Samsung is introducing high refresh rate displays to its mid-range phones this year! Our sources have confirmed that the Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A72 will both feature a 90Hz display, a first for any Galaxy device, while the Galaxy A52 5G will have a 120Hz display just like Samsung’s flagship phones.
High refresh rate screens coming to mid-range Galaxies
Why the higher refresh rate on the A52 5G, you ask? Well, probably because the Galaxy A52 5G will have a more powerful processor under the hood – it will be powered by the Snapdragon 750G, instead of the Snapdragon 720G that will push the pixels on both the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72. However, even the 90Hz displays on the A52 and A72 should make the user experience a lot smoother, and we are just glad that high refresh rate displays are already trickling down to Samsung’s non-flagship models because 60Hz screens feel too outdated.
We also have the specs for the Galaxy A52 5G, most of which the LTE variant of the phone will likely share. Almost all of these have been rumored before: There’s 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage accompanying the Snapdragon 750G chipset, a 6.5-inch Full HD+ Infinity-O Super AMOLED display, a 64MP main rear camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP depth camera, a 5MP macro camera, a 32MP front-facing camera, an on-screen fingerprint sensor, and a 4,500 mAh battery with 25W super fast charging support. The phone will run Android 11 out of the box, likely with version 3.1 of One UI.
According to early retailer listings, the Galaxy A52 5G could be priced a little north of 450 euros, while the LTE variant could be priced at around $400. The new A series phones are expected to launch sometime next month.
