Samsung is set to update the Galaxy A71 and A51 this year with a pair of new successors, the appropriately named A72 5G and A52 5G, as per veteran leaker Evan Blass. The two phones have already been leaked, so we know what they’ll look like. As is custom with phones in this price bracket, there’s not a lot different here from their immediate predecessors.
It looks more or less like the A51, save a few changes to accommodate a camera bump that looks a lot like what you’ll see on the S21.
We don’t yet have rumored specs or pricing, but some of the specs should be easy enough to predict. The 5G branding means that Samsung will be shipping these with at least a Snapdragon 750 if it opts for Qualcomm. The previous generation came with four cameras, so the latter can be expected to do so as well. An OLED display with at least a 1080p resolution is a no-brainer, but whether Samsung will up the refresh rate to match rivals like Xiaomi and OnePlus is yet to be seen.
