The Galaxy A52 is one of the best mid-range phones Samsung has ever made, but it doesn't seem to be good enough for the Korean market, where neither the Galaxy A52 nor the Galaxy A52 5G are available for purchase yet. Instead, it was recently revealed that Samsung may be working on a Galaxy A52s for its home country, similar to how it released a Galaxy A50s shortly after the Galaxy A50 back in 2019.
Nothing is known about the Galaxy A52s except its model number (SM-A528B/N), but a report from the Korean media suggests the Galaxy A52s may hit retail shelves in the country by September. Sadly, that's pretty much all the report has to offer in terms of new details, so we're left to speculate as to what kind of upgrades we can expect from the souped-up Galaxy A52.
Improved cameras? Faster processor? Details on the Galaxy A52s are fuzzy at this time
Previous ‘s' upgrades of Samsung's Galaxy A series phones have mostly focused on improved cameras, but short of putting a 3x optical zoom lens on the A52s and making the Galaxy A72 obsolete as a result, there's not much Samsung can do on that front. The Galaxy A52 already has an excellent camera setup, which consists of a 64MP optically stabilized main shooter that's accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide sensor and 5MP depth and macro lenses.
A processor upgrade is more likely, and it's possible the Galaxy A52 will feature the Snapdragon 778G, as the upcoming Galaxy M52 5G is expected to feature the same chipset. Perhaps a bigger battery will also be part of the package, though that's another move that could reflect negatively on the Galaxy A72, which is already too similar to the Galaxy A52. But, as mentioned above, all this is speculation so we can't be sure what the Galaxy A52s will bring to the table at this time.
More information should surface in the coming weeks as we get closer to the Galaxy A52s' official launch, and we will let you know as soon as we learn anything new, so stay tuned.
