Samsung’s first Snapdragon 778G phone could be the Galaxy M52 5G


Last updated: June 28th, 2021 at 12:25 UTC+02:00

Samsung has launched multiple mid-range smartphones over the past few months, and it turns out, the company isn’t done with them yet. The South Korean smartphone giant appears to be working on one more mid-range device that hasn’t been made official, and it could be launched later this year.

A new Galaxy smartphone with model number SM-M526BR has appeared in Geekbench’s database for the first time. Going by its model number, Samsung could call this device Galaxy M52 5G. The phone, which appears to be running Android 11, has scored 777 points in Geekbench 5.1’s single-core CPU test and 2,868 points in the multi-core CPU test.

Interestingly, the motherboard of the device is termed ‘Lahaina,’ which is the codename that appears in phones with the Snapdragon 888 processor. We thought that the M52 5G will feature a Snapdragon 888 processor, but when we dug deeper, we found that the identifier, CPU frequencies, and the GPU (Adreno 642L) of the processor match with the Snapdragon 778G, which makes all of this a bit confusing.

The Snapdragon 778G is not Qualcomm’s flagship chipset, but it is still a proper high-end processor built using TSMC’s 6nm process. It features one Cortex-A78 CPU core clocked at 2.4GHz, three Cortex-A78 CPU cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and four Cortex-A55 CPU cores clocked at 1.9GHz. It uses the Adreno 642L GPU that is capable of pushing Full HD+ 144Hz displays with HDR10+ and running AAA gaming titles at high refresh rates.

A few days ago, the HONOR 50 Pro, which features the Snapdragon 778G processor, was leaked with the mention of ‘Lahaina’ as its motherboard. So, it is possible that the Galaxy M52 5G actually uses a Snapdragon 778G processor and 6GB RAM. Whatever the case is, we should know more about this interesting smartphone over the next few weeks.
