Samsung Galaxy A72: Official renders, specifications and European pricing leaked for 4G only mid-range smartphone
The Galaxy A-series has proven popular so far, so it is no surprise to see that Samsung has 2021 models planned. Earlier this week, more details about the Galaxy A52 4G and Galaxy A52 5G emerged, which have now been followed by a large leak about the Galaxy A72. According to Roland Quandt and Max Jambor, Samsung does not plan to release a 5G model of the Galaxy A72, although it is unclear why.
Apparently, the Galaxy A72 will start at €449 with 128 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM; Samsung will offer 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM variants too. All configurations will have a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display that will operate natively at 2,400 x 1,080 pixels with a peak 90 Hz refresh rate.
Moreover, the Galaxy A72 has a Snapdragon 720G SoC, a step down from the Snapdragon 750G in the Galaxy A52 5G, along with a 5,000 mAh battery and a USB Type-C port. Additionally, Quandt claims that Samsung has included a microSD card reader and has certified the Galaxy A72 to IP67.
As for cameras, there will be a 32 MP front-facing camera, a 64 MP primary camera, an 8 MP telephoto camera that supports 2x optical zoom and a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera. There is a 2 MP macro camera too; this one may be more for show though, based on past experience of such low-resolution macro cameras.
Finally, the Galaxy A72 will ship with Android 11 and will have a 3.5 mm headphone jack, an in-display fingerprint scanner and two hardware buttons. It remains unknown when Samsung will announce the Galaxy A72, but the volume of leaks about it and the Galaxy A52 series suggest that a launch is close.
