Samsung already started to move and prepare its 2021 smartphone series for release. While the doors of 2021 are set to start with the launch of the Galaxy S21 series, the company is also preparing a set of mid-range smartphones for its A and M-series. The company’s best selling devices – The Galaxy A51 and A71 will get a sequel in the form of Galaxy A52 and A72. Now, it seems that there will be a third device with 5G connectivity launching early next year – The Galaxy A32 5G.
The Galaxy A32 5G already appeared in the rumor mill and today is was spotted on the Bluetooth SIG database. This is an important certification, so it seems that the device isn’t far from a release. The listing reveals that the Galaxy A32 5G moniker belongs to model numbers such as SM-A326B, SM-A326_DS, and SM-B326BR-DS. The only other thing that can be found in the listing is that carries support for Bluetooth 5.0. This is very good as some devices are still coming with the older Bluetooth 4.0 standard.
With the Bluetooth SIG certification in tow, we expect more details to appear soon. The certification often comes a month before a smartphone release, so having the Galaxy A32 5G in January 2021 may not be a distant dream. Besides the 5G variant, we also expect a 4G edition of the smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy A32 5G alleged specifications
According to a set of leaked CAD renders, the Galaxy A32 5G will flaunt a 6.5-inch display panel. It also brings a waterdrop notch at the top, or Infinity-V cutout, if you prefer. Under the hood, the device will carry the 7nm Dimensity 720 chipset bringing good performance and seamless 5G connectivity. The 4G models will feature a different chipset.
The exact amount of cameras in the back isn’t specified. The CAD render suggests a Quad-Camera array, but we can’t confirm this right now. You should expect a triple-camera array at the very least. The main camera will be a 48MP megapixel unit and we expect an ultrawide camera and depth sensor to join the setup. The phone will also bring a 3.5mm headphone jack. According to rumors will target the 299 (~$367) price tag in Europe. This certainly won’t be the cheapest 5G smartphone coming next year, but it’s a good start for Samsung.
The South-Korean firm will greatly expand the list of 5G mid-range phones in the next year, following the Chinese wave of 5G mid-range devices.
