Today Samsung held its Unpacked event for its new Galaxy A series of affordable phones. The event follows January’s Unpacked event where the Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra were launched. Due to the pandemic, Samsung streamed the event which consisted of a prerecorded video.

Samsung wanted to bring “awesome to everyone” and showed off three new Galaxy A series phones: the A52, A52 5G and A72. US prices haven’t been announced but European pricing ranges from €349-449 which converts to $415-535, £300-385, AU$540-690.

Everything unveiled at Samsung’s Galaxy Awesome event


Last year was the first time Samsung introduced the full Galaxy A series in the US with four 4G LTE phones that started at $110 for the Galaxy A10 and topped out at $400 and two 5G models, the $500 Galaxy A51 5G and the $600 Galaxy A71 5G. Even with prices converted, the new phones seemed to be more affordable than their 2020 counterparts.


This is the new Galaxy A52 phone from Samsung.


Galaxy A52

The 6.5-inch Galaxy A52 is the most affordable phone of the trio. It packs a 4,500 mAh battery, 25-watt fast charging and an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. It works on 4G LTE and doesn’t have support for 5G. It has a 32-megapixel selfie camera and four rear-facing cameras: 64-megapixel wide angle, 12-megapixel ultra wide and 5-megapixel macro and a 5-megapixel depth camera with 10x digital zoom. The display has a FHD+ resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate and a tiny hole punched out that houses the selfie camera. Like the A52 5G and A72, it comes in violet, blue, black and white.


All three new Galaxy A phones come in four colors: black, white, violet and blue.


Galaxy A52 5G

There is a second version of the Galaxy A52 with 5G aptly named the Galaxy A52 5G. It has all the same features as the regular A52 except it comes with a higher price, 5G support and the high refresh rate screen is 120Hz instead of 90Hz on the A52 and A72. It will work on any carrier that offers sub-6 GHz 5G which is slower than mmWave 5G, but more reliable.


With a 6.7-inch screen the Galaxy A72 is the largest phone of the three announced today.


Galaxy A72

The 6.7-inch Galaxy A72 is the biggest of the three phones announced and packs a few upgraded specs from the A52 and A52 5G. It has a larger 5,000 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom but has the same 90Hz high refresh-rate as the A52. The A72 only works on 4G LTE and doesn’t have 5G support and costs the most out of the three phones.
