Samsung Galaxy A52 5G added to support database as mid-ranger leaks again with a 120 Hz display, a 4,500 mAh battery and a dual-SIM model; 90 Hz display for the Galaxy A72
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy A52 5G in a few weeks, ahead of which the device has appeared on the FCC. The regulatory body is yet to publish any photos of the device. Nonetheless, the documents that it has uploaded so far provide a few additional details about the Galaxy A52 5G before its release.
On the one hand, the FCC reveals that Samsung has assigned the Galaxy A52 5G the model number SM-A526B. There are also multiple references to a 'DS' variant, which probably means dual-SIM. Hence, it seems that Samsung plans to announce single and dual-SIM versions of the Galaxy A52.
On the other hand, the FCC reports that Samsung has equipped the Galaxy A52 5G with an EB-BG781ABY battery. According to spare parts websites, the EB-BG781ABY has a 4,370 mAh rated capacity and is a battery that Samsung currently uses in the Galaxy S20 FE. However, Samsung advertises the Galaxy S20 FE with a typical battery capacity of 4,500 mAh. So, it seems that Samsung has re-used the battery from the Galaxy S20 FE in the Galaxy A52 5G, giving the latter a 4,500 mAh battery.
We first saw SM-A526B mentioned in a Geekbench listing in November, which showed the device running Android 11 on a Snapdragon 750G and 6 GB of RAM. These specifications have remained identical across the 37 subsequent benchmark listings for the device, which you can view in full here.
Samsung has also added the SM-A526B to its support database, along with the DS variant. The listing does not provide any other details about the device, unfortunately, but the model name correlates with the listings published by the FCC and Geekbench.
According to SamMobile, Samsung will equip the Galaxy A52 5G with a 120 Hz display, too. If that is the case, then the Galaxy A52 5G sounds like an enticing device with a high-refresh-rate display, a large battery and a powerful chipset. SamMobile adds that the Galaxy A72 will only have a 90 Hz display though, which seems odd for a more expensive device. A 90 Hz display would still be better than the 60 Hz panel in the Galaxy A71, mind you. Apparently, the Galaxy A52 4G is due a 90 Hz display too, which you can read more about here.
