Samsung Galaxy A52s goes through the FCC, will allegedly cost €450 for 128 GB storage
As the Samsung Galaxy A52s gets closer to launch, the details of the phone continue to run in. Yesterday we saw renderings in all four colors, Awesome Mint, Purple, Black and White, now there are even more renderings, FCC documentation and even some unofficial pricing information.
The model certified, SM-A528B (with both single and dual SIM versions), supports the following 5G bands: 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41, 66, 78. In addition, it has Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity.
These are the same bands as the Galaxy A52 5G, although the “s” model uses another modem – an X53, part of the Snapdragon 778 chipset (which was reported by Geekbench). The X53 is rated for up to 3.3 Gbps downlink speeds on 5G and 1.2 Gbps on 4G. For reference, the A52 5G uses a Snapdragon 750G chipset, which has older CPU cores and a weaker GPU. It is also an 8 nm chip, while the 778G is wired on a more advanced 6 nm node.
The chipset may not be the only upgrade. There is talk that the phone will get a tele camera (replacing the 5 MP depth sensor), in other words it will have Galaxy A72 5G camera (which also uses the slower 750G chipset).
According to leakster Snoopy, the phone will only be available with 128 GB of storage and will cost around € 450 (which converts to $ 535 or 39,500 INR). This matches the original price rumor that we heard a few days ago.
No launch date has been mentioned yet, but Samsung has more important things to worry about right now — next-generation foldable flagships coming next week. Galaxy S52s are likely to be unveiled later with less fanfare.
