Midrange phones have come a long way and seeing the success of the Galaxy A52 5G that was released earlier this year, Samsung has unveiled a more refined variant dubbed the Galaxy A52s 5G with the same RM1,899 price point at launch.
The main draw here that elevates the Galaxy A52s 5G over the original Galaxy A52 5G is the inclusion of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G octacore that’s built on the more recent and efficient 5nm process versus the A52 5G’s Snapdragon 750G 8nm processor.
In terms of practical performance enhancements, you’re potentially looking at modest improvements in battery life and slightly better performance. At present the original Galaxy A52 5G is not available for sale anymore on the Samsung Online store.
Processor aside, the rest of the hardware is mostly similar and consists of a 6.5-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2,400 pixels) resolution Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and an O-shaped cutout for the 32MP F/2.2 selfie camera.
The rear comes with a quad camera array build around a 64MP main camera, a 12MP ultra wide angle camera, a 5MP macro camera and a 5MP depth sensor. The Galaxy A52s 5G also features 8GB RAM and 256GB of expandable storage. Keeping it powered is a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
The Galaxy A52s 5G also has a similar looking external chassis with a pastel aesthetic about it and a matte finish though the Malaysia market only has Awesome Black and Awesome White as selectable colours for now.
