Samsung Galaxy M52 5G Specifications
The new Samsung Galaxy M52 5G is a mid-range device. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778 octa-core SoC, as leaked from a retailer’s listing. Coupled with the Snapdragon 778 SoC, there will be 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage, which is expandable further up to 1TB via microSD card.
The Samsung Galaxy M52 5G will sport a 6.7-inch full HD+ AMOLED display having a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a tall aspect ratio of 20:9 and a refresh rate of 120Hz, bringing the best of both worlds while the display comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection to keep it safe from scratches.
In terms of optics, as revealed in the renders we shared earlier, the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G sports a triple camera setup on the back. It is expected that the phone may feature a 64-megapixel primary shooter on the back, alongside a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On the front, we may get to see a 32-megapixel selfie camera. However, there is no word from Samsung or an official confirmation regarding the camera setup on the device so we may need to wait till the launch day to know about that.
Samsung Galaxy M52 5G will run OneUI 3.1, based on Android 11. The device should pack a large battery, probably one with 5000mAh capacity considering the fact that most phones from the Galaxy M Series have a big battery as one of the highlights. As the name Galaxy M52 5G, suggests, the device supports 5G. Apart from 5G, connectivity options on the phone include 4G with VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, 3.5mm jack and USB-C. Interestingly, the Galaxy M52 5G features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner cum power button, exactly what we revealed earlier this month.
Samsung Galaxy M52 5G Price
Last year, Samsung priced the Galaxy M51, the predecessor to the Galaxy M52 5G at Rs. 25,000. This year, from the leaked listing it was revealed that the Galaxy M52 5G is priced at PLN1749 which is roughly Rs. 32800. But, in India, since smartphones are priced quite aggressively for budget and mid-range phones, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy M52 5G to be priced somewhere around Rs. 25,000.
