It seems like the upcoming mid-range budget phone of Samsung shows a lot of promise.
The Galaxy A71 (along with the 5G variant) has shown to be one of the best-selling smartphones of Samsung during this year, as it offers the features that people especially want within a smartphone that is priced at mid-range. Now, a better version, being the Samsung Galaxy A72, will be coming out within the first quarter of next year.
Samsung appears to have a hardware refresh in plan, since Steve Hemmerstoffer of OnLeaks now publishes device renders.
According to the sources of androidpolice, there will not be much of a difference between both Galaxy A72 5G and the A71 that’s still currently available.
The camera array seems to share the same attributes, as these may be the same main rear lens of 64MP as of the A71, and also the display remaining at the size of 6.7 inches. The measurement of the phone will be 167 x 77.4 x 8.1mm (actually 9.9mm when the camera bump is included), making it just a couple of millimeters bigger than the A71.
Although, despite the similarities between the Galaxy A72 and A71, rumors say that the Galaxy A72 might become the first mid-range priced smartphone that will adopt the OIS (optical image stabilization) camera technology out of the many previous smartphone productions of Samsung.
In addition, another rumor has claimed that this model will be the first mid-range priced smartphone that will be featuring a penta-camera setup on the panel at the back. Samsung has already produced devices that have four rear-facing cameras equipped before. Although, this time it’s five, making it very new to the smartphone industry.
The soon-to-be-available Samsung Galaxy A72 will give the users more options on what type of camera to use. These options are the 64MP primary camera sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, an 8MP telephoto lens, a 5MP macro lens, and a 5MP depth sensor.
The remaining details of the hardware are currently still unknown, but some speculated guesses could still be made. The chipset used by the A71 is the Snapdragon 765G chipset, although due to the lack of direct successor towards the 765G as of now, the A72 might stick to just that. The model of this year also held a RAM of 6-8GB, an internal storage of 128GB (along with the microSD support), and a battery power of 4,500mAh.
The targeted MSRP of Samsung for the A72 might be the same as A71, $600 or any price above $400. It would be for the best that expectations for progressive changes in memory or storage won’t be that high.
Samsung Galaxy A72 is something worth waiting for, but if you are not patient enough, just get a new smartphone instead while it isn’t too late since the sales might end soon. Other quality products of Samsung that would be worth the purchase would be the Samsung Galaxy A71 and Samsung Galaxy A51.
