Samsung Galaxy F52 5G launched: Basically a downgraded Galaxy A52 5G

The new phone has the same chipset, battery, and refresh rate as the Galaxy A52 5G. But there are plenty of differences too.

Published onMay 20, 2021

  • Samsung has launched the Galaxy F52 5G in China.
  • It features the same chipset, battery size, and refresh rate as the Galaxy A52 5G.
  • The phone does see several downgrades though.

Samsung’s Galaxy F series is its newest range of devices, essentially targeting a similar price segment as its budget M series. Now, Samsung has launched the Galaxy F52 5G, and it shares a few features in common with the recently launched Galaxy A52 5G.

For starters, both phones have a Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset, which should enable a good level of system and gaming performance. Samsung’s latest phone also shares the A52 5G’s 120Hz refresh rate, 4,500mAh battery, 25W wired charging capabilities, and 64MP f/1.8 main camera.

That’s about where the comparisons end though, as the Galaxy F52 5G offers a TFT LCD screen as opposed to the A52 5G’s OLED panel. We also have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of the pricier phone’s in-display fingerprint sensor, as well as no IP rating (which the A52 5G offers).

Otherwise, the Galaxy F52 5G packs 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a less impressive quad-camera system (64MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, and a pair of 2MP sensors). Selfies are handled by a 16MP punch-hole shooter. Other notable features include USB-C, a 3.5mm port, and Samsung One UI 3.1 atop Android 11.

Samsung’s latest budget phone is only available in China for now, starting at 1,999 yuan (~$310). The device is available in black and white colorways. There’s no word on wider availability, but this could be a neat alternative to the A52 5G if you want a similar level of horsepower, battery life, and the same refresh rate.
