Samsung introduced a new smartphone lineup for mid-range devices called F-series. Today the series has been updated with a new smartphone called Samsung Galaxy F52 5G. Previously, Samsung launched the F62 which got popular thanks to its huge battery and splendid display. The highlights of the F52 5G include a powerful Snapdragon processor with 5G connectivity and a high refresh rate display.
Design-wise, it looks totally different compared to F62. Rather, it resembles previous A-series smartphones. There is a trendy rectangular camera module in which one side is holding the primary, ultra-wide, and LED flash while the other half includes the macro and depth sensors. On the front, there is a punch-hole notch. In a nutshell, the device looks clean and minimalistic.
Samsung Galaxy F52 5G features a 6.6″ FullHD+ TFT display with a 120Hz refresh rate. I would have preferred an AMOLED 60Hz display over TFT 120Hz but I guess Samsung is giving the premium display choice to A-series. Although, we should appreciate the fact that there is a punch hole notch instead of an old-school teardrop notch.
