The Galaxy A52s will be available in 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB configurations. While the former will sell for Rs 35,999, the latter will set you back by Rs 37,499.
Samsung launched the Galaxy A52s 5G smartphone in India on Wednesday. This is a follow-up to the A52 5G. The new phone has the same core design, display, cameras and battery as the model that it is replacing, though, in Samsung’s defence, the Galaxy A52 5G was never launched in India. Next to the Galaxy A52 LTE model that is currently sold in India at a base price of Rs 26,499, the Galaxy A52s 5G looks like a decent upgrade. The phone in question starts at Rs 35,999.
Like many of its other mass-market 5G phones, Samsung is touting the fact that the Galaxy A52s supports as many as 12 5G bands. The other big USP of the phone is Samsung’s immaculate 3-year software support. The Galaxy A52s will compete with phones like the OnePlus Nord 2 and Xiaomi Mi 11X.
