Samsung launches Galaxy A52 with 5G version, 64 MP camera and IP67 | Cell

THE Samsung announced, this Wednesday (17), the global launch of the Galaxy A52, your new premium intermediate smartphone. The phone arrives in LTE and 5G versions to replace the popular Galaxy A51. Among the highlights of the technical sheet, are the quad camera with main sensor of 64 megapixels, the screen of 120 Hz or 90 Hz (depending on the model) for greater graphic fluidity, and resistance to water and dust (IP67).

Galaxy A52 gains modern, attractive and resistant design

In 2021, Samsung bet on the color violet with the announcement of the Galaxy S21 line, and now it was time to expand the application of tone for its most advanced intermediate smartphones. We also have models in white, black and blue. The frame for the camera starts to follow the color present on the back of the smartphone, making the module less flashy and giving more elegance to the device.

A very welcome addition is the water resistance, which did not show up on the Galaxy A line in a few years. The Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G are IP67 certified, and can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for a maximum of 30 minutes. Despite the specification, the manufacturer does not advise diving in swimming pools or on the beach.

We also have an upgrade on the screens, both 6.5 inches with Super AMOLED technology, for vivid colors and intense contrasts. The Galaxy A52 LTE brings a refresh rate of 90 Hz, to display graphics fluidly, with smooth transitions. The 5G version goes further: it is 120 Hz – which also suggests a higher energy expenditure.

Advanced performance and two-day battery

The smartphones announced during the “Galaxy Unpacked Absurdo” are just a few steps away from the Galaxy S line, and should deliver great performance with an octa-core processor and up to 8 GB of RAM. The LTE version also has variants with 4 GB and 6 GB of RAM, while the Galaxy A52 5G has only models in 6 GB and 8 GB. In storage, users can choose between 128 GB or 256 GB.

Samsung brought battery improvements: now both the Galaxy A52 and its 5G version have 4,500 mAh – enough for up to 48 hours away from the outlets, according to the manufacturer itself.

64 megapixel quad camera

Like the Galaxy A51, the new A52 and A52 5G have a quad rear camera. However, the main sensor jumps from 48 megapixels to 64 MP, offering an even higher resolution and more cropping options for photos. The other lenses remain with the predecessor configuration: an ultrawide, with a 12 MP sensor; a macro, with a 5 MP sensor; and a depth sensor with 5 MP, for portrait mode.

In selfies, we continue with 32 megapixels (f / 2.2) – specifications that have already earned praise in the past generation.

Launch of the Galaxy A52 in Brazil

According to Samsung, the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G will be launched in Brazil, as well as the more robust model, Galaxy A72, also presented this Wednesday. However, there is still no information on the arrival date and the price of smartphones in the national market.

It is worth remembering that the Galaxy A52 will not bring headphones in the box, as was anticipated by the Tecnoblog in February, but the manufacturer maintains the charger:

For many users, a Galaxy A series model is the first Galaxy smartphone, and they may not have the entire Galaxy accessory ecosystem at their fingertips. To ensure that users have the tools they need to make the most of their new devices, we’ll include a charger plug and cable in the Galaxy A series packaging.
