Samsung India has finally launched the Galaxy A52s 5G in the country as the latest of its A-series of devices. It will take on the likes of Realme’s GT Master Edition, Poco’s F3 GT, Xiaomi’s Mi 11x and the OnePlus Nord 2.
This new handset from the South Korean giant comes equipped with a quad-rear camera setup, a 120Hz AMOLED panel, dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and more.
Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G: Features, Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G makes use of a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with an Infinity-O notch to the top and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Performance is dependent on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778 SoC with up to 8GB of RAM. This is a decent upgrade over the Snapdragon 750G present on the Galaxy A52 5G.
Optics wise, the device has a quad-camera stack with a primary 64MP sensor coupled with a 12MP ultra-wide sensor and a 5MP macro and 5MP telephoto sensor. Selfies and videos can be taken via the 32MP front shooter.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, 5G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C. Security-wise, the device also has an in-display fingerprint sensor, a common feature for mid-rangers. The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G boots One UI 3 on top of Android 11 out of the box.
This launch comes at a time when the budget segment and mid-range segment is heating up, with Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, OnePlus and many more brands launching one or more product priced similarly to the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G. On paper, it seems to be a decent all-rounder but only time will tell.
