Samsung launched the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A72, and the Galaxy A52 5G at the GAlaxy Awesome Unpacked event in March. The former two devices made their way to India in the same month itself. However, the latter did not make the cut. But now, it seems like the Galaxy A52 5G will launch in India after all.
According to Twitter user @_the_tech_guy, Samsung has started developing firmware for the Galaxy A52 5G Indian variant. This version of the smartphone will arrive with model number SM-A526B. For those unaware, the regular Galaxy A52 sold in India bears the model number SM-A525F.
But unfortunately, the timeline of this handset’s launch in the country is a mystery as of now. As far as pricing is concerned, we can expect it to sit between the Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A72 as there’s a huge price difference between them.
Talking about features, the Galaxy A52 5G differs from the vanilla Galaxy A52 in terms of three aspects. The former is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, features a 120Hz display, and comes with 5G connectivity. On the other hand, the latter has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, a 90Hz display, and 4G connectivity.
This is not the first time Samsung will be bringing a 5G variant of the existing model to India. Just recently, the South Korean tech giant debuted the Galaxy S20 FE 5G in the country after half a year from its initial release in global markets.
