Snapdragon everywhere: Galaxy A52 will not have a version powered by Exynos

Samsung’s Galaxy A series smartphones are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Some of the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 specifications have been unveiled recently. And the Galaxy A52 design has been leaked, along with the processor and memory capacity of its 5G variant. The next phone will be launched in a 4G version, and our friends from GalaxyClub I found out it uses a different processor.

If you are a Snapdragon fan, you should be happy with Galaxy A52 4G (SM-A525F). Following a recent landmark, the phone uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. It’s a downgrade compared to the Snapdragon 750G processor used in the Galaxy A52 5G, but it’s still a huge upgrade over the Galaxy A51’s Exynos 9611 processor and could deliver decent gaming performance. Snapdragon 720G uses two 2.3 GHz Kryo 465 Gold CPU cores, six 1.8 GHz Kryo 465 Silver CPU cores, an Adreno 618 GPU and a 4G modem.

The Geekbench 5 results show that the Galaxy A52 4G runs Android 11 and has 8 GB of RAM. Moving on to previous leaks, the smartphone could have a four-camera configuration, with a 64MP wide-angle camera and a macro camera. It will probably be an ultra-wide camera and a depth sensor in the mix. The phone appears to have a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, an on-screen fingerprint reader, a Type C USB port and a headphone jack.

It is quite surprising to see that Samsung does not use any Exynos processor in any version of the Galaxy A52, even if it has a powerful chipset in the form of Exynos 980. It is also surprising that the announced new Exynos 1080 5 nm processor has no I was still found powering no Galaxy smartphone. We hope that at least Galaxy A72 5G uses Exynos 1080 SoC.
