The Galaxy A52 gets a 4,500mAh battery while the A72 gets a 5,000mAh unit. Both supports 25W fast charging via USB-C. Unfortunately, Samsung Malaysia is only offering LTE versions for both models at the moment. Although both devices cost slightly more than the A51 and A71, the new iterations come with double the storage at 256GB.
Galaxy A32 LTE and 5G
The Galaxy A32 comes in both 4G and 5G versions, and both come with very different hardware including screen sizes. The 4G version gets a 6.4″ AMOLED 90Hz display with a Full HD+ screen and it runs on a Helio MediaTek G80. Meanwhile, the 5G version gets a slightly bigger 6.5″ TFT display that pushes a lower HD+ resolution screen and it runs on a MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chip.
In terms of camera, the LTE version gets a 64MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, a 5MP macro camera and a 5MP depth camera. The 5G version gets a lower 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, a 5MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. Even the selfie cameras are different with the LTE version having a 20MP front camera while the 5G version settles for a 13MP camera.
Both variants come with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging via USB-C. In Malaysia, both A32 versions come with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. With a price tag of RM1,199 for the A32 5G, this is the most affordable 5G smartphone from Samsung but you can get better specs with the OnePlus Nord N10 5G.
