The Samsung Galaxy A52 is cleared for an imminent launch with new certifications
The Galaxy A52 is an upcoming Samsung phone, the release of which is all but confirmed through new Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications. Then again, its additional specs, the Snapdragon 750G SoC included, have not been revealed in these new leaks.
The Samsung Galaxy A5x sub-series of phones is currently thought to get a 2021 successor with the Snapdragon 750G processor. It has been depicted as having an update, slightly S21-esque rear camera array in some renders, although a newer, live-image leak points to a more standard, rectangular raised hump.
The rear panel shown in these photos is said to be made of the same "glasstic" as the Galaxy S21 and S20 FE. In more concrete Galaxy A52 news, a new model number likely to correspond to it (SM-A526) has shown up on the Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG websites.
The new registrations indicate that it is a Wi-Fi 5, Android 11 and Bluetooth 5.0 device. It also has several variants: SM-A526B; SM-A526B_DS; SM-A526N and SM-A5260. Therefore, it seems to be shaping up as a mid-ranger due to launch in several countries or regions. On the other hand, Samsung has yet to announce the almost certainly upcoming Galaxy A52 5G.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
