Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy A52 and A72, making powerful innovation accessible to everyone. The latest Samsung Galaxy A series lets you communicate and express yourself with an awesome camera, immerse yourself in a clear viewing experience with a smooth scrolling display, and enjoy greater peace of mind with innovative Galaxy foundation features including water resistance and a long-lasting battery. The Galaxy A series will also expand your mobile experience by providing access to the wider Galaxy ecosystem of connected devices, such as Galaxy Buds Pro, Galaxy SmartTag, and Galaxy Tab [1].

“Samsung strives to give consumers what they want and need most. That’s why we set out with a vision for the Galaxy A series to democratize Galaxy innovations for everyone,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy A52 and A72 encapsulate the Galaxy brand philosophy with cutting-edge innovations, services and features at an accessible price.”

Create, communicate and express yourself with an awesome camera
Samsung has set the bar high for camera quality, and the Galaxy A52 and A72 are no different. By making exciting camera innovations available for the new Galaxy A series, you can enjoy more fun and versatile photos and videos.

  • Versatile Camera Experience – Shoot vivid and crisp photos and videos with ease thanks to a versatile quad camera with 64MP high-resolution. Instantly turn your favorite moments from 4K videos into 8MP high-resolution images with 4K Video Snap. Scene Optimizer uses AI to shoot with optimal settings for 30 categories of images and backgrounds such as food, landscapes, and pets.
  • Stable day or night – Whether filming the latest dance trend or capturing a new skateboard trick, OIS (optical image stabilization) ensures pictures and videos come out sharp and steady. No need to miss an important moment anymore because of low lighting. Night mode uses multi-frame processing, resulting in a bright and crisp image even in the dark.
  • Fun content capture – Add style and unique flair to content using AR Emoji and My Filter. Additionally, you can now apply AR Lenses from Snapchat with Fun Mode [2] when snapping content from the native camera app.

See and be seen with an awesome display and refined design
Samsung enhances experiences and style with a vivid display and sophisticated design to fit and reflect your life.

  • Brighter and Smoother – Enjoy your favorite show on Samsung’s beloved Super AMOLED display. Now with 90Hz on the Galaxy A52 and A72, the scrolling experience is even smoother. Keep watching and scrolling social media posts even when outside thanks to an increased 800nits luminance.
  • Comfortable viewing experience – The display is also ‘Eye Care’ certified [3], and automatically adjusts the display’s color temperature based on smartphone usage patterns to reduce eye fatigue with ‘Eye Comfort Shield [4]’.
  • Refined design – The new Galaxy A series features a refreshed design that is simple yet purposeful with a soft-edge design and minimal camera housing.

Expand your experiences thanks to the power of the awesome Galaxy ecosystem
The new Galaxy A series experience is enhanced by the seamless connections and new opportunities offered through the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem.

  • Stay organized and connected – SmartThings connects to and controls thousands of devices in a smart home environment right from the Galaxy A series—including wearables, tablets, PCs and TVs. Additionally, SmartThings Find locates your paired devices with more intuitive and detailed directions, and Galaxy SmartTag [5] Bluetooth locator can find non-connected devices or belongings by attaching it to what matters most. So you can connect and control thousands of devices from your Galaxy A series.
  • Enjoy music together without hassle – Whether participating in a joint workout at home or catching up on the latest podcast with friends, connect and listen to music together. Music Share simply syncs a phone with a friend’s device to share music without speaker pairing. Also, pair phones with two sets of Galaxy Buds devices and listen together with Buds Together.
  • Connect and share with ease – Quick Share lets you easily send pictures and videos without size limitation to nearby Galaxy devices so you can get quick approval before posting a group selfie. With Private Share [6], you can change your mind whom to share with, or revoke the photos and videos even after sharing with just one tap.

Expect more and get more with awesome Galaxy foundation
The new Galaxy A series comes with the Galaxy essentials that all Galaxy users deserve to have.

  • Peace of mind – Take chances and get messy without worry as the Galaxy A52 and A72 are water and dust resistant [7] with an IP67 rating. Protect the things that matter with built-in Samsung Knox [8]—Samsung’s defense-grade security system that safeguards personal information and data in real-time.

  • Support sustainability – Samsung regularly evaluates products, packaging and operations to discover new ways to improve our efforts to promote sustainability. The Galaxy A52 and A72 uses pulp mold and paper to minimize unused space and material use for the packaging [12].
  • Software updates – Samsung always aims to provide Galaxy users with an up–to-date mobile OS, and this is now expanded to the A series. The Galaxy A52 and A72 will support software upgrades for three generations, and regular security updates for a minimum of four years [13].
