For those who aren’t fast enough with the Galaxy A52, Samsung will launch a new and faster A52 phone, the Samsung Galaxy A52s, later this month. Under the skin, Samsung is upgrading the chipset to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, while other specifications remain the same. It is rumored that the company only charges 20 euros for the upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy A52s
At the end of this month, Samsung customers will face a tough choice. After all, would they choose the cheaper Galaxy A52 5G or pay a higher price for the Galaxy A52s to enjoy improved performance. Sebastian He wrote in July about the first rumors about the Galaxy A52s; All the details that were leaked at that time will be confirmed this time by WinFuture.
It has been confirmed that the only upgrade for the Galaxy A52s will take place under the hood. Instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chipset – which we know from the Mi 10T Lite and thus the Galaxy A52 5G – the Snapdragon 778G chipset now provides the necessary computing power. Samsung links the chipset with 6 GB and 128 GB of storage. In Europe, an 8GB variant with 256GB storage may also be available. Whether it will be released in the Netherlands is unknown.
Same specification (internal)
It seems that Samsung only focused on the new chipset on the A52s. After all, other (internal) devices remain unchanged. For example, the Galaxy A52s gets the same 6.5-inch screen as the Galaxy A52, the battery gets the same 4,500mAh capacity with 25W wired fast charging and the device, like the A52 5G, has an IP67 rating, making it water-resistant and dust-resistant.
The camera equipment remains the same, with the same 64MP main camera (f/1.8), a 12MP wide-angle camera (f/2.2) and two 5MP cameras and a portrait camera (f/2.4). There is a 32-megapixel sensor for the selfie camera.
Turn on the Samsung Galaxy A52s
The rumor makers did not say a release date, but the phone will be released on the market in August. However, the price of 449 euros was mentioned. So the device if this reflects the price in the Netherlands, its price is 20 euros more expensive than its predecessor. It also appears that Samsung is no longer selling the Galaxy A52 5G, which could indicate that the A52s 5G will replace the current A52 5G in the Netherlands.
The plastic cover of the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is expected to be available in four colors: black, green, blue and purple. The white variant, as available with the Galaxy A52 5G, does not appear to be available. What do you think of the Galaxy A52s as it stands now? Would you rather buy the Galaxy A52s 5G, or would it be too expensive and would you rather buy the Galaxy A52 4G? Let us know in a comment at the bottom of the article.
