Samsung launches Galaxy A52s 5G w/ Snapdragon 778G & 120Hz display

After launching the Samsung Galaxy A52 in March, Samsung now has an “s” version of this 5G-capable handset. The improvements are mostly when it comes to the processor.

The Galaxy A52s now has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset paired with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage. (The Snapdragon 778G chipset runs on devices like theĀ realme GT Master Edition.) It also gets a 6.5-inch 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED screen, but we have seen that in the 5G option of the original Galaxy A52.

The rest of the phone is the same as its predecessor. You get a 4,500mAh battery with 25-watt charging support, an in-display fingerprint scanner, IP67 water and dust resistance, headphone jack, and a 64-megapixel quad-camera setup paired with a 32-megapixel selfie camera.

If you were thinking of getting the Galaxy A52, it might be worth holding out for the A52s. In the UK, it’s coming on August 24 in Awesome Black, Awesome White, Awesome Purple, and Awesome Mint for GBP 409 (around USD 555, PHP 28,000). We’ll update you with any news on possible local availability.
