The Google Pixel 5a is making headlines because the Pixel A series has a well-earned reputation for offering solid features and software at reasonable prices. But with both the specs and prices starting to tick upward, Samsung would like to remind you that Google isn’t the only company making mid-range phones.

Samsung’s new Galaxy A52s 5G features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 6.5 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. It will be available in select markets starting this month with prices starting at £409 ($562).

The phone is an upgraded version of the original Galaxy A52, which launched earlier this year. That model has a Snapdragon 720G processor and lacks support for 5G networks, topping out at 4G LTE.

The Galaxy A52s 5G features a 4,500 mAh battery and support for 25W fast wired charging, a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 1TB, and four rear cameras:

  • 64MP primary with optical image stabilization
  • 12MP ultra-wide (123 degrees)
  • 5MP telephoto
  • 5MP macro

There’s also a 32MP front-facing camera, an in-display fingerprint reader, a USB Type-C port, NFC support for use with Samsung Pay, and an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance.

  1. Only in the U.S. would $562 be considered a mid-range phone price. People in the U.S. are getting gouged.

    1. Sd 778G is midrange which can compete with High end soc, A52s is probably one of the best all Around phone Right now.

      120hz Amoled display, SD card slot, 3.5mm jack, ip rating, OIS Camera, 4 years software support, flagship perfomance, etc.

      What this phone lack is just USB 3.1 to be perfect.

      1. Nah.
        Most “complete” phone in recent times are:
        – Sony Xperia 1.3
        – ASUS RoG 5
        – ASUS Zenfone 7 Pro
        – Razer Phone 2
        – Samsung S10+
        – Samsung Note 9
        – ZTE Axon 7
        – LG V20
        – Samsung Note 4

        …but we are finally seeing actually better/improved phones in the Samsung A52s and the Pixel 5a. Generally, we’ve been quiet stagnant with each passing generation of phones removing a couple of practical features.

    2. W00t? The US gets the lowest prices for tech of anywhere in the world. Even in China and Hong Kong prices for internationally released devices are no lower, and usually a little bit higher after local sales taxes.
