The device runs on Android 11 and is further fueled by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor.

While coming clad in plastic but with a distinctive look is the Galaxy A52 that has a similar design to Galaxy A51. It has a similar design trait as that of Samsung high-end phones. The display borders are slim with the front camera spotting an Infinity O pinhole. Worth noting is that the front camera does not merge into the front glass anywhere. The layers at the front are more reflective and make the device’s camera stand out from far.
The side buttons are also made out of plastic and feel more like that of Oppo A5which gives it a subtle look o A5. Galaxy A52 does have a distinctive back that is seen in the previous Samsung Galaxy A-series. Its finishing comprises intersecting lines that have cutting shapes onto the back which comes with a different look. The bottom section comprises a pinstripe texture of thin lines and produces a shimmering rainbow tone. The large camera housing looks advanced with the phone being of fair size but slightly wider than Galaxy S20. It comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor and the screen is IP67 water-resistant.
6.5 INCH DISPLAY SCREEN
Similar to Galaxy A51, Galaxy A52 also comes with a 6.5 inch Super AMOLED screen that further spots 1080×2400 pixels resolution. The OLED screen is able to give out a deeper color while having a better contrast thanks to its universal backlight. The device further gets other advantages of such a screen as its optional vivid screen is saturated while contrast in dark rooms is impressive. Screen brightness is fairly good and falls in the same case as that of Galaxy S20.
With this large screen, you will experience an immersive watching experience with a great cinematic view. You can play graphic intensive games and enjoy customizable characters and detailed environments. The screen is reasonably big for easy viewing to avoid straining. It has decent viewing angles and the screen can get bright for outdoor usage. On the display is a selfie camera for photography, video calls, and face recognition. There is also an under-display fingerprint scanner for authentication.
IP67 Dust and water protection cannot go unmentioned as it allows the hone to get dropped in a body of 1m deep water for up to an hour. This feature falls slightly short of the IP68 which is found in iPhone 11 Pro Max and Galaxy S20. IP68 guarantees protection in water for up to 1.5m deep for one hour.
With its upgraded camera specs, Galaxy A52 aims for the big leagues where we get Galaxy A72, Samsung M31s, and Poco X2. You further get to enjoy a quad-camera array of 8MP ultra-wide lenses, 5MP, and 2MP mono lenses. The main camera is a huge improvement from that of A52 which stood at 48MP and gives you nothing but the best of photos when it comes to getting good shots.

The telephoto lens is able to focus on nearby objects sharply while ultra-wide shoot gives out the usual dynamic range and details.
Not much has changed with the selfie camera which still stands at the same size as that of Galaxy A51:32MP. The front camera is also able to utilize the 2MP depth sensor and further provide exceptional shots that are more than impressive. Overall the phone’s camera is a hit as it even has image stabilization which is excellent for shooting during focal length. Finally, it also comes with EIS that is good for shooting videos while having software-based stabilization.
The world is moving at a fast pace and so is Samsung as it introduces the Galaxy A52 which also has a 5G variant.
