Attack of The Sequels: The Galaxy A52 5G, A32 5G & A72 Finally Released

smartphonesshop.com.au - Everybody loves a good sequel, especially when they don't lose what made the original installment so good. Samsung's Galaxy A52, A32 and A72 are exactly what follow ups to largely successful smartphones should be, once again blurring the line between mid-range and flagship. We must say that they truly live up to the "Awesome" factor that the A-Series is meant to represent. Let's take a look at why nobody can do a flagshi... we meant mid-range like Samsung.



I Got 52 On it

The Galaxy A52 is the sequel to Samsung's best selling smartphone, the Galaxy A51. The Galaxy A51 was a truly a favourite, offering fantastic performance alongside a display that looked almost better than real-life. Topped off with an amazing camera alongside a great price, it's not hard to see why it was a bestseller! Now, the Galaxy A52 looks to claim that throne with both a 4G and 5G variant. Take a look at the specs of both variants below, courtesy of the one and only Toms' Guide, plus a quick look at the device from our TikTok page!

One look at the Galaxy A52 and you just know you’ll be in for a good time. Sporting a design that looks like the offspring of the Galaxy A51 and the S21, this gorgeous gadget turns heads wherever it goes. With a 120Hz refresh rate and an eye-popping display, it’s almost as if the A52 shouldn’t have been a mid-ranger. There’s a fantastic 64MP back camera alongside ultra-wide and macro cameras for your Instagram shots, alongside a powerful Snapdragon 750G chip which should allow you to multitask with ease. Add up to 8GB of RAM combined with up to 1TB of storage and it’s almost like we’re seeing the prequel to the Galaxy S22 here! Either way, the Galaxy A52 puts the awesome into the A-Series, and it’s not hard to see exactly why.




5G For All

The Galaxy A32 5G is Samsung’s cheapest 5G phone yet, going for a modest $499 while providing a more than sufficient Galaxy experience. It may not provide all the bells and whistles the Galaxy A52 5G does, but its stylish design and reasonable price combined with 5G capabilities make it an irresistible offer to those looking for a 5G device but don’t want to break the bank. There’s a ginormous 5000mAh battery that should give you up to two days of usage. While it may only sport a 720P display, you can expect better battery life than other devices because of it! There’s a respectable 4GB of RAM bundled alongside 15W of Fast Charging, and its camera specifications don’t disappoint either, with a 48MP camera alongside an 8MP Ultra-wide lens plus 5MP Depth and Macro Lenses. The A32 5G shows Samsung’s commitment to ensuring everybody can enjoy the latest technology, and that in itself should be commended!

Back in 72

The sequel to the ambitious Galaxy A71, the Galaxy A72 sits in an interesting position, wedged between the awesomeness of the Galaxy A52 and the accessibility of the Galaxy A32. While only a 4G variant exists, the A72 still manages to provide an impressive experience. There’s a respectable Snapdragon 732G chip alongside 8GB of RAM which should be enough for even the most ardent multitasker. According to Android Central, they found the A72 to be an interesting balance, with a 5000mAh battery alongside a 90Hz refresh rate plus 800 nits of brightness, which was found to be vibrant and bright even under direct sunlight. The camera proved quite impressive as well, although not up to the level of the A52.The absence of 5G here is without a doubt a curious omission, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see an A72 5G that improves on this version in every way sometime soon, knowing Samsung’s track record. While we may have expected more from the successor to the A71, the A72 still manages to impress, with the specs below from Tom's Guide showing that perfectly:
