The Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 launch is expected on March 17 during a virtual event that the company is hosting. The event, which the South Korean company called Galaxy Awesome Unpacked, will be livestreamed virtually on YouTube via Samsung’s official channel. The Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 are among the most anticipated smartphones of 2021 and have been subject to various leaks and rumors.
The phone is speculated to have 4G and 5G versions and Samsung is expected to come in the mid-range segment. In addition to the upcoming launch event, an unboxing video of the Samsung Galaxy A52 has surfaced on YouTube. The Samsung Galaxy A52 4G model has also reportedly appeared on the Google Play console with some features.
The Galaxy Awesome Unpacked event will take place on Tuesday 17 March at 10 am (8:30 pm IST). It will be seen through Samsung’s YouTube channel. The livestream will also be accessible through the Samsung Newsroom site.
Although Samsung has not explicitly mentioned the products to be launched at the event, the term “Awesome” in the title suggests the introduction of the new Galaxy A-series phones. According to the recent reports, it is expected to be Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72.
Announcing the launch event on the Samsung Newsroom site, the company said, “Join us on March 17 for Galaxy Electronics to see how Samsung Electronics is great for everyone.”
The March 17 launch date for the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 was also recently tapped online.
Just a few days before its expected launch, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G has appeared in an unboxing video, posted on a mobile phone. The video intentionally shows the new Samsung phone with its retail box and in-box materials. It includes a 15W fast charger, although customers are said to have the option to upgrade to a faster, more powerful 25W charger.
The alleged retail box of the Samsung Galaxy A52 also includes a standard USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable and a TPU case. In addition, the phone will come with an IP67 rating making it a dust- and water-resistant device. It will have a hole-punch display design.
In the unboxing video, Samsung Galaxy A52 5G is running PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty without any lag.
Separately, MySmartPrice reports that the Samsung Galaxy A52 4G has appeared on the Google Play console with the model number a52q. The online listing shows that the phone has Qualcomm SM 7125, which is part of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. The phone has 8GB RAM, a full-HD + (1,080×2,009 pixels) display and Adreno 618 GPU. It will apparently also run on Android 11.
The Samsung Galaxy A52 – along with the Galaxy A72 – is expected to launch in markets including India soon after the global launch next week. The support pages of both phones recently appeared in the UAE suggesting their imminent debut.
