At its second Unpacked event of the year, Samsung officially unveiled three of its next A-series phones: the Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A72. Key specs across the board include IP67 water and dust resistance, brighter screens with faster refresh rates, and a 64-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization. All three models include a microSD card slot for expandable storage and will ship with a charging brick in the box - features that you won’t find in the S21-series flagships. While the company isn’t sharing US pricing or availability yet, it has confirmed European pricing: €349 for the A52 (about $415), €429 for the A52 5G (about $510), and €449 for the A72 ($534).

    • a52 4g bc apparently i needed a a stablle 4k footage on a cheap price (also since the redmi note 10 pro doesn’t have like what), also the 90 hz screen, and the matte back since it has grip and the samsung one ui since i like it.

  • A52, the "new" but more expensive A71. A72, the upgraded A71, but disappointing camera specs for the price, and still no wireless charging, huh? Nope, its better to stick with a more affordable, fine and cheaper A71 this year. Both A52 and A72 don't make sense to me as an A70 and A71 owner. Looking ahead to the A73. Fingers crossed.

I have a Tab S6 I got around Christmas and Android 11 is the last update it gets as well as me not being able to update to Android 11 because of fragmented updates. Edit: I finally got it but it is the most underwhelming update I have ever seen.

  • I hope Samsung is trying to increase the longevity of their products. The last few slides gave some hope. My Galaxy S8 is 2.5 years old. It's so slow, now. (It's lost its smoothness after like 1 year) I'm disappointed. Apple products released in that era is still blazing fast and getting the latest software. I wont even get Android 10!

  • I’m more interested in the presenters, more specifically their English. How many people do you think did not get this job just because they’re English was ever so slightly worse. They have really good English but you can tell the slight accents are not entirely gone. How much training do you think they underwent to perfect the language in a country where English is not a primary language. The hustle in this type of profession must be extremely cutthroat.

    • @OXIR Same here. I was waiting for the S20 Lite/FE ever since the S10 Lite launched. I was really hoping they’d launch it with SD here in India but they did not. I’m sick and tired of waiting for Samsung to not screw things but they keep doing it. I was hoping to get A72 had they launched it in December or January with SD765/SD750. I ended up with an iPhone 11. I went over twice my budget but I’m happy. It has A13 bionic with twice the benchmark scores and will stay up to date for 4 more years.

    • S20 FE (5G) To be honest the only reason I didn't get the S20 FE was because of Exynos 990. I heard so bad things about it and was scared of the performance. The 5G model which uses Snapdragon 865 was not available in my country.
