In terms of the display, we’re looking at a 6.5″ FHD+ Super AMOLED “Infinity-O” screen. It is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5. But more importantly, the company has bumped the refresh rate from 60Hz to 90Hz. To note, the recently launched Galaxy A32 4G was the first non-flagship phone from Samsung to feature a high refresh rate screen.
However, it doesn’t employ a variable refresh rate (VRR) mechanism meaning the display won’t dynamically adjust the refresh rate according to the content on the screen. On top of this, Samsung has also nabbed SGS eye comfort certification for reduced blue light emission. You can even schedule the time period to automatically turn this on.
On the illumination front, the Galaxy A52 boasts up to 800 nits of brightness under HBM (High Brightness Mode). It also gets AMOLED-exclusive features like Always-on Display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Unlike the ultrasonic reader in Samsung’s flagship phones, the A52 hosts the regular optical in-display fingerprint sensor.
Moving on to the performance side of things, Samsung has gone with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G here. This is a healthy upgrade over the notoriously overused Exynos 9611 in the Galaxy A51, but considering the competition, it’s far from the ideal chipset on a phone of this premium. It’s an 8nm chipset and is found in mid-range phones like the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max.
Anyway, you can choose between 4, 6, or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and either 128 or 256GB of internal storage. You can also expand the storage up to 1TB using a micro SD card.
Running the show is Samsung’s latest One UI 3.1 based on Android 11. The company recently announced its revised software update policy. Under this, Samsung promises 3 years of OS and 4 years of security updates on its smartphones. With this, the new Galaxy A52 is set to receive up to Android 14 (or whatever Google ends up naming it) OS update.
Like I mentioned earlier, this phone has a quad-camera setup at the back. The 48MP primary camera on the A51 has been substituted with a 64MP sensor whereas the rest of the setup remains pretty much the same. You get a 12MP ultrawide camera with a 123º Field Of View (FOV), a 5MP macro, and a 5MP depth sensor.
Unlike the new Galaxy A72 which has a telephoto lens as well, the A52 is only capable of digital zooms of up to 10x. Additionally, Samsung has also brought in OIS on the rear camera. Consequently, you can shoot stable videos even at 4K/30fps by turning on the “Super Steady” mode.
Talking about videos, there’s no 60fps option in any resolution, while you can shoot 4K videos from the ultrawide lens, this does come at a sacrifice of OIS. The 32MP selfie shooter upfront can record 4K/30fps footages too but it’s void of stabilization. Other interesting camera features on the Galaxy A52 include Single Take, Fun mode (developed in partnership with Snapchat and currently exclusive to Samsung phones), Super Slo Mode, Night Mode, etc.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the device is a decent 4500mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging. Thankfully, you will get the power adapter inside the box—but only a 15W unit.
Samsung is claiming up to two days of battery life on this thing but we doubt it. A52 also has Dolby Atmos-certified stereo speakers making it a confident device for content consumption. As expected, it features Samsung’s Knox security as well.
