- According to reports, Samsung is preparing to launch a more powerful smartphone, the successor to the Galaxy A52.
- The new 5G device may be called Galaxy A52S, and can get a younger, faster SoC under the hood.
- It is expected to be launched later this month at the same price of $500 as its siblings.
Samsung launched the Galaxy A52 5G as early as March. This mid-range smartphone offers a pleasant 120Hz display, excellent battery life, IP rating, and a powerful main camera for $500. However, one of our biggest doubts about it (see our review) is its moderate performance. It seems that Samsung is about to correct this problem with a successor called Galaxy A52S.
Equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G, the performance of Galaxy A52 lags far behind other phones in the same price range. In our test, the A13 Bionic of the iPhone SE easily beat the Qualcomm SoC. We noticed that this phone is suitable for daily use, but cannot rely on heavy work.
New leaks now indicate that Samsung’s Galaxy A52S will be equipped with a younger and more powerful Snapdragon 778G chip. CPUs have also appeared on recently launched mobile phones, such as Motorola Edge 20 and Honor 50 Pro. Compared with the Snapdragon 768G that powered several mid-to-high-end devices last year, it is expected to increase performance by more than 40%.Due to the leak from Win the future Please note that you can expect the rumored Galaxy A52S to be 35% faster than its counterparts.
The new A-series Samsung is expected to be launched in Europe, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. According to the leak, there should be an 8GB + 256GB model in other regions.
No other specifications of the phone have changed. Therefore, you will get the same 6.5-inch Super AMOLED panel with an in-display fingerprint sensor, 4,500mAh battery, 64MP quad camera setup and IP67 rating. The design of the Galaxy A52S may also be consistent with the leaked renderings.
The phone is expected to be launched later this month and will be priced at 449 Euros (approximately US$527).
