New Galaxy A72: Samsung's premium mid-range raises the level but forgets 5G


The Galaxy As is among the most anticipated mobiles for the mid-range in Spain. These terminals have excelled in recent years for offering more and more high-end features at a more affordable price. Alongside the Galaxy A52 and A52 5, G Samsung has introduced the new Galaxy A72, a mobile similar in technical characteristics to its younger but larger brother, with more battery and no version with 5G.

New Galaxy A72: bigger, with better battery and optical zoom

Samsung has made a groundbreaking design change on its A52s. Like its predecessors, the material used is what Samsung calls Glasstic, although for practical purposes we will define it as plastic. This year the finish becomes matte but somewhat heavier than its younger brother, reaching 203 grams.

The most striking part of the design is its new rear camera module, which does not stand out too much and with soft lines. In these photo modules, we highlight the main camera of 64 Mpx and an ultra-wide-angle sensor of 12 Mpx. We also have an 8 Mpx telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a macro photography sensor of 5 Mpx.

Multimedia is one of the most noteworthy of the Galaxy A72. We have a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a maximum brightness of 800 nits, FullHD+ resolution, and a built-in optical fingerprint reader. In addition to outstanding image quality in the mid-range, we have a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It is a larger panel than the A52 with the same degree of quality and refreshes rate as the A52 with 4G.


Perhaps the most important part of these mobiles is in Samsung's approach to delivering a premium experience at an affordable price. As with the A52, we have speakers with stereo sound, IP 67 water resistance, and 3 generations of Android updates. For some the experience can be even better than in the high-end, offering a 3.5mm jack connection for headphones, memory expansion by microSD card, and boxed charger.

The Samsung Galaxy A72s are released from today and will be available in two memory configurations, as unlike with the A52 the 5G version has not been introduced. As a gift for the first to get hold of one, Samsung will give you a Galaxy Buds+, wireless headphones with great sound and lots of battery.
