    Following the launch of the flagship S21 lineup, Samsung has just officially revealed its new premium mid-range A series smartphones. The new A series phones are the A72, A52, and A52 5G, all of which promise high-end features without flagship-level price tags.

    Galaxy A72

    First up, we have the Galaxy A72, the successor to last year’s A71. Much like its predecessor, the A72 is a big phone with its 6.7-inch AMOLED display. Though this time, the display has a faster 90Hz refresh rate.

    As for its cameras, the A72 has a mostly similar quad camera setup with a 64MP main and 12MP ultrawide. The big difference though is that, instead of a depth sensor, the A72 has a 3x telephoto camera–a shooter that’s usually only found in flagship phones.

    Powering the phone is a Snapdragon 720G processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. Other features of the phone include a 5000mAh battery, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and IP67 water & dust resistance.

    Up next, we have the A52 which packs a slightly smaller 6.5-inch 90Hz AMOLED display. The A52 also has a 5MP depth sensor instead of a telephoto camera, and a 4500mAh battery. But aside from these, the A52 has pretty much the same specs as its bigger brother, but with a lower price point.

    Samsung Galaxy A52 specs:

    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G octa-core processor
    • 4/6/8GB RAM

    Finally, we have the A52 5G, a 5G-ready smartphone. It is quite unusual to see Samsung release a 5G version of the A52 instead of the bigger A72.

    Aside from its 5G capabilities thanks to its Snapdragon 750G SoC, the A52 5G also has a display with a faster 120Hz refresh rate. But aside from these, the specs are the same as the base A52.
