In September, we learned about the Samsung Galaxy A72, an upper mid-range smartphone with five rear cameras that the South Korean smartphone giant had plans to launch in 2021. But aside from the camera, we didn’t know much about the smartphone, including its likely specs. and design. That changes now as a new leak gave us our first look at the Galaxy A72 5G, revealing its design and some of the specs.
The latest leak comes to us courtesy of prolific smartphone leakster Steve Hemmerstoffer. One of the key revelations of the new leak is that the Galaxy A72 5G will be equipped with four rear cameras and not five as previously reported. The overall design of the smartphone closely resembles that of the Galaxy A52 5G, which is yet another smartphone in the Galaxy A series scheduled for 2021. The only visual difference between the two is the size of the display: the Galaxy A72 5G sports a panel 6.7-inch, while the Galaxy A52 5G has a smaller 6.5-inch display. The phone will feature a Glasstic back panel (a plastic material that looks and feels like glass) and an aluminum frame.
On the back, we can see a rectangular camera module that houses the four cameras and a Samsung-branded flash module visible towards the bottom. Details on the camera sensors are still unknown.
The Galaxy A72 5G is said to measure 165 x 77.4 x 8.1mm (9.9mm with the rear camera bump) and should keep the 3.5mm audio jack. It will also offer an in-display fingerprint scanner similar to the Galaxy A52 5G. The leak didn’t reveal exact details about the processor, memory, battery, and other hardware components, but we expect to hear more in the months leading up to the official launch.
In addition to the Galaxy A72 5G and Galaxy A52 5G, Samsung is also working on another 5G-enabled smartphone called the Galaxy A32 5G, which is said to be the company’s cheapest 5G smartphone.
