The leaked renders suggest the Galaxy A72 successor will arrive with a familiar design. It will have a centered hole-punch cutout on the front and a rectangular camera bump on the back. Disappointingly, however, it looks like the upcoming mid-ranger will not feature a headphone jack. Samsung's other 2022 Galaxy A-series phones — including the Galaxy A53, are also expected to ditch the analog port.
As for the phone's key specs, rumors suggest the Galaxy A73 will be powered by Qualcomm's 8nm Snapdragon 750G chipset, which powers some of the best budget Android phones. It is also tipped to feature a 6.7-inch flat AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 5000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
The biggest upgrade, however, is likely to be in the camera department. While the Galaxy A72 uses a 64MP main camera, the Galaxy A73 is said to come equipped with a 108MP primary shooter.
The Zoutons report claims the Galaxy A73 will go on sale in India by the end of December at a starting price of ₹32,999 (about $440). If the information is accurate, the phone could be formally unveiled very soon.
Samsung Galaxy A52 5G
Samsung's Galaxy A52 is solid 5G mid-ranger with a vibrant 120Hz screen, excellent battery life, and a capable quad-camera setup on the back. It is also among the few mid-ranger Android phones to come with an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance.
