    Samsung has finally launched the successor to last year's best-selling Android smartphone. Similar to the Galaxy A51, the Galaxy A52 comes in two variants, one with 4G (LTE) connectivity and the other with 5G connectivity. Unlike last year, though, the 4G and 5G variants of the Galaxy A52 differ not only in terms of processor and connectivity but also screen quality and storage configuration.

    The Galaxy A52 uses the Snapdragon 720G processor, which is much faster than the Exynos 9611 chipset that was used in the Galaxy A51. However, it is a bit of a downgrade compared to the Galaxy A51 5G's Exynos 980 processor. The Galaxy A52 5G, on the other hand, comes equipped with the Snapdragon 750G processor, which is almost as good as the Galaxy A51 5G's Exynos 980 chipset. The Galaxy A52 comes in three variants: 4GB+128GB, 6GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB. The Galaxy A52 5G comes in just two variants: 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB.

    Thanks to the Snapdragon 750G's higher firepower, the Galaxy A52 5G comes with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The LTE variant of the Galaxy A52 comes with a similar-sized screen, but it has a slightly lower refresh rate of 90Hz. So, if you have access to the 5G version of the Galaxy A52 in your country and if you crave high-refresh-rate screens, you should go with the Galaxy A52 5G.

    Both versions of the Galaxy A52 run Android 11 with One UI 3.1. The smartphones feature a 32MP front-facing camera and a 64MP+12MP+5MP+5MP quad-camera setup at the rear, complete with 4K 30fps video recording. They also feature stereo speakers, dust and water resistance with an IP67 rating, and an in-display fingerprint reader. Other features include a microSD card slot, GPS, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, headphone jack, and a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
