Galaxy A52 and A72 now said to feature high refresh rate displays, A52 5G gets IP67 rating too

11 February 2021
At least for the 4G A52, previous rumors said not to expect something like this.

Sort by:

IP6x rating on an upper midrange smartphone? Sounds like a viable contender to the LG Velvet 5G.

Hmmm sounds too good to be true 🤔

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2021A3 2017 = IP68 + gorilla 4 on both sides Current A phon... moreA3=less than one third powerful processor of present
Half of present battery
Half of charging speed
Hd resolution,not full hd
Much smaller screen
Significantly less camera specs
Price same like a50s
....but lol to u ,present series is bad coz of no glass body smh

The high refresh rate at this price is usually fulfilled by a LCD panel. Hope we get an Amoled panel with the high refresh rate.

Jericho, 12 Feb 2021It doesn't make sense to only make the 5G version IP67... morePrice difference will be there too..but yeah they should launch both versions everywhere

Can't wait till this phone gets released, i was quite suprised when they bought back ip rating on the a52. So totally a buy

waiting for A52....

Took bit long for gsmarena to get info about refresh rate

It doesn't make sense to only make the 5G version IP67 rated. In some markets 5G won't be available for years, not wise to make these customers miss out on features.

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2021A3 2017 = IP68 + gorilla 4 on both sides Current A phon... moreYeah, i think Samsung really messed up the A and M series. Though i get that M series tend to focus more on battery, but the two series seem so close.

It's better tho than older A, J, and many many more series I can't even remember.

But Samsung should do the old way to A series, using less powerful chipset and good enough camera but it offers elegant build, ip rate, and more.

Leave the powerful soc and big battery and plastic cheap on M series.

Wow i bought a useless S21 then. It costs even the same as last year S20 despite $200 less in US.

IP raiting back on the A series? That would be epic.
Please let it be true!

Current A phones = plastic back , no IP

Now they put lower rating 67? They should stop mocking costumers.

Hope there is an charger in the box, since people who buy Midrange phones cannot afford an extra money

Finally Samsung brings back water&dust resistant on mid-range devices
