This time, with a worthy processor of the price as well as improved fast charging speeds.
When the original A52 5G came out, it was nothing more than a sidegrade of the Galaxy A52 4G, with a “just enough 5G” processor and a pretty uncompelling 15W fast charging speed “just enough” to be called “fast charging” by Wattage standards. The price was also pretty expensive in comparison to handsets of similar price tags.
The “S” version is now here to fix those issues mentioned. First, the phone actually now has a justifiable Snapdragon 778G processor if ever it was priced similar to the A52 5G, and comes along a faster 25W fast charging similar to the A72 5G. Although, the company retained the 4500mAh battery of the Galaxy A52.
The phone kept what made the phone great: that is the 120Hz SAMOLED screen, CG Glass 5 and IP67 rating, probably the only justifiers for the cost of the original Galaxy A52 5G. In the Philippines, the original A52 5G costs about Php24K. From that, you can buy a Mi 10T or a Poco F3 and those two give off better spec sheets.
Because the A52s 5G is just a marginal “fix issues” upgrade over the A52 5G, it retains the in-display fingerprint scanner of the latter, NFC, headphone jack, along with a 32mp front camera and the quad camera setup consisting of a 64mp main camera, a 12mp ultrawide and two 5mp cameras for the macro and depth sensors.
The phone will be available in selected countries starting August 24th. We are expecting the phone to be released here as well, as the Galaxy A series does need a fresh new update. In the UK, you can get the phone for GBP 410 (~Php 28.1K) which is slightly more than the original A52 5G.
