Introduction

Samsung has seen a lot of success with its mid-range handsets, particularly the Galaxy A50, which was a best-seller in 2019. The company followed it up with the Galaxy A51 in 2020 and that handset also went on to sell like hotcakes.

The Galaxy A52 is the successor to last year’s best-selling Samsung smartphone. The company has made some significant changes to revolutionize the mid-range lineup. Some great new features have been introduced with the device.

Design

Samsung has used the familiar plastic material for the Galaxy A52 that we’ve seen on other mid-rangers. It feels nice to the touch with a solid color finish. The camera cutout is also in the same color as the rest of the body for a more uniform look.

As we have seen on recent Samsung smartphones, all of the physical buttons are on the right side of the frame. The Galaxy A52 retains its 3.5mm headphone jack. Samsung has also made the body IP67 dust and water resistant.

Specifications

There’s a Snapdragon 720G chipset powering the Galaxy A52. The handset will be available in 4/6/8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage configurations. External expansion via microSD up to 1TB is supported. A 4,500mAh battery keeps the lights on and it supports 25W fast charging. Samsung does ship the Galaxy A52 with a charger in the box.

Display

The display is one of the biggest upgrades that Samsung has made on this device. The Galaxy A52 features a 6.5-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. This is the first Galaxy A5x series device to get a higher refresh rate display. There’s also an in-display fingerprint sensor for access control.

Camera

Another major upgrade has been made in the camera department. The Galaxy A52 comes with a 64-megapixel optically stabilized primary sensor. That’s in addition to the 12-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel depth and 5-megapixel macro camera. It supports digital zoom up to 10X. There’s a 32-megapixel front camera for selfies.

Software

Samsung ships the Galaxy A52 with Android 11 and One UI 3.1 out of the box. Many of the new features that were introduced in early 2021 are present. This includes enhanced integration with Google services. Samsung confirms that the Galaxy A52 will receive three major Android OS upgrades as well as four years of security updates.

Availability

The Galaxy A52 was released in markets across Europe on March 17, the day Samsung unveiled the handset. It would be made available in other markets later. Prices for the Galaxy A52 start at €349, slightly lower than what the Galaxy A51 cost.
