Samsung has decided to develop an S-branded Galaxy A52 variant, for whatever reason, and the so-called Galaxy A52s will probably go on sale before the end of Q3. Or at the very least, Samsung appears to be dealing with the formalities necessary for the phone’s market release. As a result, the Galaxy A52s was recently sent to and greenlit by the FCC.
The Galaxy A52s with model number SM-A528B has Wi-Fi 6, NFC, and of course, Bluetooth connectivity, but the FCC documents haven’t revealed much else aside from these characteristics and the 5G bands it supports: 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40, 41, 66, 78.
The Galaxy A52s won’t be all that different from the standard model
One of the few changes expected to be introduced by the Galaxy A52s 5G is a newer Snapdragon 778 chipset. There’s also a rumor floating around suggesting that the Galaxy A52s will abandon the depth sensor in favor of a 5MP telephoto camera.
The Galaxy A52s 5G will also introduce at least one new color option — mint green — as confirmed by leaked renders. The phone’s exterior design is pretty much unchanged, though.
Finally, the Galaxy A52s 5G is said to ship only with 128GB of storage, and rumor has it that Samsung intends to release the phone in Europe for around 450 euro.
