According to sources close to SamMobile, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy A52 (5G) and A72 will be the first phones in the A-series line to offer 120Hz and 90Hz respectively. This is a first for Samsung since the higher refresh rate feature has always been exclusive to the premium phones in their line-up such as the Note 20 series and the Galaxy S10/20/21 series.
Samsung A52 (5G) and A72 – A Refreshing Experience
It seems that Samsung is looking to bring the premium refresh rate experience to the mid-tier range as well.
Previously, the honor of having a high refresh rate on a display belonged to the best phones in Samsungs line-up, particularly the phones released in 2019 and onwards.
While the source comes from SamMobiles own confidential sources, they seem to confirm that the A52 (5G) will be the one touting a 120Hz refresh rate due to having the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor while the A72 will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor.
It is rumored that the phones will launch at $400 USD and are set to debut next month. The A52 (5G) will still tout the Infinity-O display which has become a signature of the A-series phones. In addition, the phone is said to come with Android 11 pre-installed, running on Samsung OneUI 3.1
The specs on the A52 (5G) are definitely impressive, but the cameras will still be mid-range tier at performance.
- 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB in RAM / ROM configuration
- Snapdragon 750G SoC
- 6.5″ Full HD+ Infinity-O Super AMOLED display
- 64MP Main Rear Camera, 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP depth camera, a 5MP macro camera
- A 32MP front-facing camera
- On-screen fingerprint sensor
- 4500 mAh Battery with 25W charging
These are all the specs are speculated thus far on the A52 (5G).
While other brands and companies do offer varying refresh rate phones in their mid-range options as well, its good that Samsung is also catching up as they have a good chunk of the Android market share.
Perhaps Samsung finally cracked the formula of bringing affordable refresh rate displays to the masses while also keeping costs low.
For now, let’s wait for official confirmation from Samsung to see if the rumor holds true.
