Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A72 Phones Unpacked

The New Samsung Galaxy A Series - A52, A52 5G, A72

Awesome Phone - Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5g, A72The latest edition to the Samsung Galaxy A Series smartphones have been revealed – the Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A72. The tech company continues to offer the line in response to consumer demand for a phone with a good camera and great display, larger battery capacity, at an affordable price point even when it also churns out high-end phones.

Personally, that’s exactly what I’m looking for when buying a new smartphone. First in mind is the camera primarily because I create content. Having a unit with a great display because it’s the screen that I look at most of the time. Next in line is the affordability as I’m not the one to spend a huge amount of money on a phone. Having a long battery life is a plus. That’s basically what you get with the latest Samsung Galaxy A Series phones.

Highlighted Features

The Samsung Galaxy A Series phones have the main camera at 64MP with optical image stabilization. This in response to consumers’ clamor of having a phone with an awesome camera. The Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 90hz refresh rate for the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A72, and 120Hz for the 5G version resulting in super-smooth scrolling meets the demand for an awesome display. And lastly, these Samsung phones have batteries that can last for 2 days. That’s awesome battery life.

All that awesome feature is inside the phone with a premium finish with a large storage capacity of either 128GB or 256 GB supporting up to 1TB expandable memory and IP67 water resistance. The move with the latest Samsung Galaxy A Series phones seems to prove that the tech giant is listening and willing to please its customers.
