Samsung Mobile has unveiled its latest A-series smartphone-the Galaxy A52s 5G. The device is the “s” version of the Galaxy A52 5G device that was released back in March 2021 and was met with criticism due to its somewhat outdated chipset and battery charger. Well, Samsung is shutting the critics up with the Galaxy A50s 5G featuring a 25W charger and Snapdragon 778G chip.
The SD 778G chip is built on a 6nm manufacturing process tech and features four Kryo 670 cores (based on the Cortex-A78), with a high-end Adreno 642L GPU and an X53 5G modem that goes up to 3.3 Gbps downlink speeds. The base configuration of the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is a 6/128GB memory with 8/128GB and 8/256GB as the other two options. For additional storage, the Galaxy A52s has a MicroSD slot.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is built around a 6.5″ Super AMOLED display that features a 120Hz refresh rate and 1080 pixels resolution. Underneath the display is a fingerprint reader and at the top is a cutout hole for a 32MP selfie camera with a fixed-focus f/2.2 lens. The rear camera setup of the A52s is a 64MP f/1.8 main sensor with OIS, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor. The Galaxy phone has an IP67 dust and water resistance rating which means it can be submerged in up to 1m of fresh water for 30 minutes.
Battery-wise, the Galaxy A52s 5G packs a 4,500 mAh, which the company proclaims is enough for two days of normal use. The second big upgrade brought on by the Galaxy A52s 5G over the Galaxy A52 is the 25W fast charger out of the box.
The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G will be available from September 3 in the UK while pre-orders begin on August 24. The starting price for the base model (6/128GB) is £410 and will be available in Awesome Black, Awesome White, Awesome Violet, and Awesome Mint body colours.
