- Samsung Galaxy A52 has appeared on Geekbench.
- The Galaxy A52 could come with a 64MP quad camera set-up.
- The phone is tipped to be powered by a Snapdragon 750G SoC.
Samsung's next Galaxy A series smartphone, the A52, has appeared on the benchmarking website, Geekbench. The listing has revealed some interesting things about the device, including the fact that the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC and carry the model number SM-A526B.
As per the listing, the Galaxy A52 5G will pair this core hardware with 6GB of RAM to help it run the phone's Android 11-based version of One UI software. The listing does not reveal any other details about the hardware of the device, however, it does give us a hint about the performance we can expect from it.
The listing reveals that the device scores 298 points in single-core and 1,001 points in multi-core performance. These are very mid-range scores, which interestingly are not better than the scores of the Galaxy A51 which scored 700 points in single-core and 1,800 in the multi-core test. However, this could very well be because of the phone is a pre-production model and performance as such should improve significantly once the device becomes official and starts running a clean copy of the operating system optimised for smooth performance.
There have been other reports about the Galaxy A52 in the past which have revealed crucial details about the device. As per one of these reports, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G will come with a macro camera but will not be equipped with a zoom lens. The phone is expected to come with a quad rear camera set-up with a 64-megapixel primary camera that will serve as an upgrade over the Galaxy A51 5G which came with a 48-megapixel camera.
Other reports about the phone suggest that the Galaxy A52 will also be launched in a 4G variant in select countries. We suspect, one of these could also be India, where Samsung may launch the phone with no 5G to keep the price down.
We've also heard in the past that Samsung will be adding wireless charging capabilities to its Galaxy A (2021) series phones. While nothing is confirmed, but this could see the A52 come with wireless charging, thus helping it to be more competitive in the mid-range segment.
