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.
Naturally, Samsung is going to release a successor for this device in 2021, and it’s going to be called the Galaxy A52. Chances are, the company will stick to the same formula it has applied to earlier models in order to replicate the success.
Samsung made some big design changes with the Galaxy A51. It had a punch hole for the selfie camera and a new L-shaped camera array at the back. We can expect some minor design changes for the Galaxy A52 though it will most likely be made of the same Glasstic material.
As we have seen on recent Samsung smartphones, all of the physical buttons might be on the right side of the frame. Since both previous handsets have retained the 3.5mm headphone jack, there’s a good chance that the Galaxy A52 will do too.
It’s not known at this point what chipset the Galaxy A52 will use but it’s obviously going to be a mid-range affair. The handset may also get at least 4GB of RAM with 6/8GB options alongside 128GB of internal storage. A battery of at least 4,000mAh may be present with support for fast charging.
Many would be hoping that Samsung slightly increases the display size of the Galaxy A52 from the Galaxy A51’s 6.5-inch panel. Whether or not it does that, we can be sure that it’s going to be a Super AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution, an in-display fingerprint sensor and an Infinity-O cutout for the selfie camera.
Samsung has made a habit of pushing the envelope on cameras for its mid-range handsets. From what we know so far, the Galaxy A52 will also have a quad camera setup at the back. It will feature a 64-megapixel primary sensor, up from 48-megapixel on the Galaxy A51, along with an ultra-wide and depth sensor. A macro camera will also be part of the setup.
Since the Galaxy A51 came with Android 10 installed out of the box, there’s a good chance that the Galaxy A52 could be among the first Samsung phones to ship with Android 11 and One UI 3.0. It will also be on the list of Samsung phones that are confirmed to receive three major Android OS upgrades.
We are expecting the Galaxy A52 to be unveiled around December this year, that’s when the Galaxy A51 was launched in 2019. Expect plenty of new color options as well. No word as yet on the price but it would likely be below $400.
