Samsung has quietly announced the Galaxy M52 5G, a new mid-range phone that is based on the Galaxy A52s.
According to the landing page for the Galaxy M52 5G on Samsung's official Polish (opens in new tab) site, first spotted by leaker Roland Quandt, the phone features a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The centered hole-punch cutout at the top of the display houses an impressive 32MP selfie camera.
Samsung's latest mid-ranger appears to have the same 6nm Snapdragon 778G chipset under the hood as the Galaxy A52s, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. It has a triple-lens camera system on the back, with a 64MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP macro lens.
The phone also has a large 5,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, a microSD card slot, and Dolby Atmos support. Surprisingly, however, the phone doesn't include a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As expected, the Galaxy M52 5G runs Android 11 with Samsung's One UI 3.1 on top. Just like Samsung's best Android phones, the mid-ranger is likely to receive three years of Android OS updates and four years of security updates.
The Galaxy M52 5G is expected to go on sale in Europe starting September 28. It is also slated to make its debut in India on the same day. Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing at this point.

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

It has a modern design with a matte finish, a smooth 120Hz AMOLED display, and a capable 64MP main camera. The A52 5G also happens to be one of the few mid-range phones that are guaranteed to receive three major Android OS updates.
Screen to big for me
This is the second article that references the M52 having the same processor as the A52 - the 778G. According to everything that I have seen -- including Samsungs website -- the A52 has the 750G. Their is a SIGNIFICANT difference between the 2 chips. Am I missing something or does the A52 really have 7788G I wish Samsung (or the Pixel 5a) has the 778G. Or the 780G
A52s has the 778G, that's what the article says. Not the A52. A52s released recently.
