Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5G & A72 Specs & Prices In Malaysia
Samsung has launched its latest line of budget smartphones under the Galaxy A series, namely the Galaxy A52, A52 5G and A72.
In this article, aside from the A32, we’re going to break down what others have to offer for those looking for an upgrade paired with more affordable price tags.
A52, A52 5G and A72
- 32MP selfie camera,
- Four-camera setup with a 12MP wide, 64MP primary, 5MP macro, 5MP depth for A52 variants, and 8MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom for the A72,

- Optical Image Stabilization (OIS),
- Scene optimizer to automatically improve brightness and sharpness for 30 different scenarios,
- Multiframe processing for night mode,
- Pro video mode,
- Integrated AR lenses for photos and videos.
The cameras come with 4K video capture which basically allows you to capture still 8MP photos from your video playback. This is a useful feature for content creators in case they forget to take a dedicated thumbnail photo.
Not only that, but Samsung’s partnership with Snapchat also lets you play around with built-in AR filters that you see regularly on the app. This allows you to take high resolution photos from your phone’s camera without having to use the app to get those dog ear filters.

A72: 5000mAh, 25W fast charge.
All variants offer 2 days of battery life thanks to the adaptive energy saving function, new to the A series. It analyzes your usage habits and automatically switches to energy saving mode. Power saving mode essentially optimizes the processor by disabling background apps to save battery power.
