Samsung Galaxy A52 and A72 are delayed due to chip shortage


The worldwide shortage of semiconductor products continues to cover an increasing number of manufacturers. Today, the focus is on Samsung, which, according to the South Korean edition of The Elec, faced problems in the production of the most popular models Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72, presented in mid-March. In particular, we are talking about the impossibility of launching global sales of new products – even after almost two months after their announcement.

At the moment, both models are available only in some European markets, and the largest US market for the company is content with only one 5G variant of the Galaxy A52. According to the president of Qualcomm, the semiconductor shortage will end at the end of 2021 at best. Here is a reminder of the specification of both new smartphones.
