The discovery of a device called the Samsung SM-E5260 on 3C has led to speculation that the OEM is working on a 5G phone called the Galaxy F52. Therefore, it might be part of a series that is normally exclusive to the Indian market. However, there are signs that, as with the F62, it may not be a completely new product.

Samsung has reportedly registered a heretofore-unseen device called the SM-E5260 with the Chinese regulator 3C. The third letter in its new model number notwithstanding, it is now projected to launch as the Galaxy F52, and, as such, is likely to be available in India only.

Therefore, this new leak might represent an expansion for the F-series, which was implemented not that long ago with the premise of offering mid-range Samsung smartphone tech with a focus on mobile photography. To this end, its variants have typically emerged as re-brands of certain Galaxy M-line devices with tweaks often related to their cameras.

Accordingly, the latest Galaxy F62 is an alternative version of the M62 that is available in Malaysia. Then again, there is no such thing as an M52. There is an A52, though - 2 of them in fact: one that is 4G/LTE-only, and another that is not. 

The new 3C certification indicates that, should the putative F52 be either of those, it is the latter, as the E5260 is a 5G smartphone. On that note, this model number is indeed very close to that of the Galaxy A52 5G (SM-A526x); not only that, it comes with the A52's top 25W charging rate as well.

Therefore, it is possible that, should a new addition to the Galaxy F-series truly be on the way, it might do so with a 6.5-inch, 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED display, a 4,500mAh battery and the Snapdragon 750G processor. This combination might be very welcome in its possible destination.

The Galaxy A52 5G is now available on Amazon
