Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5G and A72. Medium class with water resistance. Announcement, reviews, prices

Samsung came to mid-range smartphonesprotection against water and dust according to class IP67 (no deeper than a meter, up to 30 minutes, fresh water, do not wash with soap). Meet Samsung Galaxy A52 4G, Samsung Galaxy A52 5G and Samsung Galaxy A72 4G! Smartphones are very similar. The A72 is slightly larger and has a telephoto lens, while the A52 5G, of course, has 5G. By and large, there are no other differences.


Galaxy A52 4G

Only two out of three devices will be on sale in Russia. Guess which ones.

  • Samsung Galaxy A52 4G - ₽26,990 ($ 369) for the 4 + 128GB version and ₽32,990 ($ 451) for the 8 + 256GB version.
  • Samsung Galaxy A72 4G - ₽35,990 ($ 492) for the 6 + 128 GB version and ₽39,990 ($ 547) for the 8 + 256 GB version.

In many countries will be sold at the same timeand Galaxy A52 4G, and Galaxy A52 5G. In Germany, for example. € 429 (₽37300, $ 510) for version 6 + 128 GB 5G, € 349 (₽30400, $ 415) for 6 + 128 GB 4G. There will also be a variant of 8 + 256 GB on sale, but its price is still unknown.

There is support for memory cards, but the tray is hybrid.

Iron.Both 4G smartphones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. Typical average, with an average of 275,000 AnTuTu scores. In the Galaxy A52 5G, the chipset is naturally different - the Snapdragon 750G. It is a little more powerful, around 325 thousand points.


Galaxy A72

Super AMOLED Plus screens with built infingerprint scanner. All devices have the same resolution, 1080 × 2400. The A72's screen is slightly larger, 6.7 ″ (393 ppi). Both A52s have a slightly smaller diagonal, 6.5 ″ (405 ppi). The refresh rate is increased, 120 Hz for the Galaxy A52 5G and 90 Hz for the remaining two models.

Batteries are typical for modern smartphones capacity. 4500 mAh for both A52s, 5000 mAh for A72. Fast charging medium speed - 25 W. No wireless charging.

Hurrah! Optical stabilization!The camera sets are almost the same. The A52 has a 32 MP front camera, behind a classic 64 + 12 + 5 + 5 MP quad module (main camera, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor). The A72 has everything the same, but instead of a depth sensor, they installed a much more useful 8 MP telephoto lens - hello, 3x optical zoom.

What about the quality of the cameras is not yet very clear.It seems that there are already enough reviews, but all reviewers are extremely careful in expressions. Like, typical for its class. Good, but not comparable to flagships. Etc. We are waiting for someone to get their hands on photo duels with devices from other manufacturers of the same price.

On the little things. Everything is good, everything is there. NFC, human audio output, Wi-Fi 5, Type-C, gyroscope. Who would doubt that…

There are already quite a few reviews. Both in Russian and in English. I hide several pieces under the cat. Look for the rest on the pages of the devices on our website -
A52, A52 5G, A72.
The lists will obviously be actively supplemented in the coming days.
