Snapdragon around: Galaxy A52 will not have a variant powered by Exynos

The next generations of Samsung Galaxy A smartphones are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Some of the specifications of the Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A72 have been leaked recently. The design of the Galaxy A52 has also been leaked along with the processor and memory capacity of its 5G variant. The next phone will also launch in 4G version, and our friends at GalaxyClub found out it was using another processor.

If you are a Snapdragon fan, you should be happy with the Galaxy A52 4G (SM-A525F). According to a recent reference, the phone uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. It’s low compared to the Snapdragon 750G processor used in the Galaxy A52 5G, but it’s still a huge upgrade over the Galaxy A51’s Exynos 9611 processor and it could offer decent gaming. The Snapdragon 720G uses two 2.3 GHz Kryo 465 Gold CPU cores, six 1.8 GHz Kryo 465 Silver cores, the Adreno 618 GPU and a 4G modem.

Geekbench 5 results show that the Galaxy A52 4G runs on Android 11 and has 8GB of RAM. Following previous filters, the smartphone could have a four-camera setup with a 64MP wide-angle camera and a macro camera. There will probably be an ultra-wide camera and a deep sensor in the mix. The phone appears to have a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O screen, an in-screen fingerprint reader, a USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack.

It is quite surprising to see that Samsung does not use any Exynos processor in any version of its Galaxy A52 even though it has a powerful chipset in the form of the Exynos 980. It is also surprising that the recently announced 5nm Exynos 1080 processor does not have No Galaxy phone has been powered yet. Hopefully at least the Galaxy A72 5G uses the Exynos 1080 SoC.
