The Samsung Galaxy M52 will be launched as the latest mid-range phone from the brand. The Galaxy M52 will be the successor to the popular Samsung Galaxy M51 device from 2020 will be unveiled in India on September 28 一 near to the Amazon Great India Festival sale

The Samsung Galaxy M series has been Samsung’s top-performing device over the past couple of years be it in the budget segment with the M11, M21 series or in the mid-range with the Galaxy M31 and M51 series.

The device has been launched in Germany ahead of India's launch on September 28. In India, the device will be sold on Amazon and the microsite has revealed a few specs of the phone that matches with the Galaxy M52 5G which is also available in Germany. Unless Samsung makes some India-specific changes, here is what the Galaxy M52 5G brings to the table.  

The Samsung Galaxy M51, even after a year of launch, is still the device to beat in terms of battery life. With the Galaxy M52, we hope the legacy continues along with other improvements which the Galaxy M51 lacked such as a high refresh rate screen and a better design. 

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? A new mid-ranger by Samsung
  • Launch date? September 28

The Samsung Galaxy M52 is a 5G device powered by Snapdragon 778G chipset clocked at 2.4GHz. The Galaxy M51 was one of Samsung's first phones to offer a Snapdragon processor which also boosted the performance of the device. 

The Snapdragon 778G is an eight-core chipset with one Kryo 670 prime core clocked at 2.4GHz, three Cortex A78 cores at 2.2GHz and four Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.9GHz. There is an Adreno 642L GPU for handling graphics and gaming. The chipset also supports multiple 5G bands. In terms of RAM and storage, the device is expected to feature up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. However, in India, we can also expect 8GB variant. It also comes with up to 4GB of Virtual RAM (RAM Plus).

In the visual department, the Galaxy M52 comes with a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display along with a 120Hz AMOLED Plus screen 一 a jump from the 60Hz AMOLED panel on the Galaxy M51.  In terms of design, the phone comes with vertical stripes on the back - something similar to what we’ve seen on the Galaxy F62.

Further, in terms of optics, the device comes with three cameras on the back instead of four cameras from the Galaxy M51. The device features a 64MP(f/1.8) main camera, a 12MP(f/2.2) ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP(f/2.4) macro shooter. There is also a 32MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The device can shoot up to 4K videos, and up to 240fps slow-mo videos. 

In terms of battery, Samsung has taken a step back and you get a 5,000mAh battery, unlike its predecessor which comes with a massive 7,000mAh battery. The phone supports 25W fast charging as well. 

Other features include Android 11 based on Samsung’s OneUI skin on top, Dolby Atmos support, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, single speaker, Type-C port, 173-gram weight, and 7.4mm thickness. 

Samsung Galaxy M52: what we want to see

Based on our Samsung Galaxy M51 review, here are the three things that we’d like to see in the upcoming Galaxy M52 device. 

Faster charging speeds 

With the massive battery on the inside, the Galaxy M51 offers 25W fast charging which takes about two hours to charge. With the Galaxy M52, we’d like to see faster-charging speed as the rival brands are offering up to 65W fast charging in the mid-range segment. 

Better build quality

The Galaxy M51’s back panel is a mix of glass and plastic material. The back of the device is a fingerprint magnet and it can get scratched easily. We’d like to see an improved build quality on the back this time around. 

Sub-200 gram weight

With massive battery capacity also comes the weight. The Galaxy M51 weighs around 213 grams and is thick at 9.5mm. It does get bulky and uncomfortable to hold for a long period. If the Galaxy M52 comes with a 7,000mAh battery, we’d like to see the weight go down.
