Samsung Galaxy A series 2021: The full range explained


Samsung has unveiled a trio of new A series phones for 2021. These include the A52, A52 5G and A72. 


While these devices have a similar overall design and a 64MP rear camera, they differ in a number of other ways.

We’ve gone in-depth on the three devices below, and we’ve spent a few days with the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G so check out our hands-on and video for a deeper look at that phone.

Samsung Galaxy A52

The entry-level A52 model ditches the 5G and won’t be sold in the UK. It boasts a 90Hz AMOLED 6.5-inch 1080p display with a small cutout for the 32MP front camera.

Inside you’ll find an octa-core chipset and either 4, 6 or 8GB RAM. 4GB RAM seems a little low for an Android phone these days, however it should be fine for basic stuff.

There’s a 4500mAh battery inside with 25w charging and the body of the phone is IP67 rated. In terms of camera setup, you’re looking at a 64MP main camera with OIS and a load of AI optimisation modes inside the camera app. The three other cameras consist of a 12MP ultra wide, 5MP depth and 5MP macro.

See below for our couple more details:

  • 189g
  • 75.1 x 159.9 x 8.4mm
  • Four colours: black, blue, white and violet
  • 800 nits of brightness
  • 128GB or 256GB storage options
  • One UI 3.0
  • Micro SD up to 1TB
  • 15w charger in the box

The device will be available for €349. US pricing has yet to be revealed and it won’t be coming to the UK

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G seems like the true flagship in this latest bout of A Series phones. It has the fastest screen and 5G support, both of which should help it compete with the best mid-range phones around.

The 6.5-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED display is a standout feature and in our short time with the device we have found it to be one of the best screens available at this price.

Other features include a 4500mAh battery, Dolby Atmos speakers and a 64MP main camera with OIS and a bunch of AI optimisation modes.

The three other cameras consist of a 12MP ultra wide, 5MP depth and 5MP macro. There’s also a 32MP selfie shooter on the front and a Snapdragon 750G chipset inside.

You’ll be able to get the phone in 6 and 8GB versions, with those models coming with 128GB and 256GB storage respectively. There’s also expandable storage via MicroSD, something you won’t find on the Samsung Galaxy S21 series.

See below for our couple more details:

  • 189g
  • 75.1 x 159.9 x 8.4mm
  • Four colours: black, blue, white and violet
  • 800 nits of brightness
  • One UI 3
  • Micro SD up to 1TB
  • 15w charger in the box

The device will be available for £399. US pricing has yet to be revealed.

Samsung Galaxy A72

The biggest, priciest member of the new A series omits a few of the higher-end touches of the A52 5G but it does have a bigger display and battery.

Here you’ve got a 6.7-inch panel with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 1080p/FHD+ resolution. There’s a hefty 5000mAh battery too. As a result, it’s the heaviest of the bunch at 203g.

Another benefit of the A72 is that it’s the only one of the bunch with a 3x optical zoom capable lens. The other cameras are a 64MP main, 5MP macro and 12MP ultra wide.

There is no 5G support on the A72.

See below for our couple more details:

  • 77.4 x 165 x 8.4mm x 8.4mm
  • Four colours: black, blue, white and violet
  • 800 nits of brightness
  • One UI 3
  • Micro SD up to 1TB
  • 15w charger in the box

The device will be available for £419/€449. US pricing has yet to be revealed.
