Samsung Galaxy A72 5G: The “Design & Looks” and “Quad Rear Camera”:

We all have seen the “Design & Looks” of the “Galaxy A72”, “Galaxy A72 5G” inherits a bit different look as per the leaks. We can’t say a complete “redesign”, but a “mix” of two popular old models’ “look and design”, models like “Galaxy A52” and “Galaxy S21”. For example, if we look carefully into the “design” of A-72’s “front panel”, it supports the “Hybrid-look”. Say, the “flat display Screen” with surrounding very thin “bezel” reminds us of “Galaxy S21”. Whereas the “Selfie-Camera” is put in a “centered” small “Punch-hole” that we have seen in both “Galaxy A52” and “Galaxy S21”. The “Rear-Cover” of the “Galaxy A72” is made of “plastic” and “matte”.

There will be no changes regarding the “Display” in “Galaxy A72 5G”, same as “Galaxy A71”, even the “display-size”. Resolution is a bit less than “Premier” Galaxy S21, 1080 x 2400 pixel, the same as “Galaxy A52”. “Galaxy A72 5G” will have full “HD10+” quality, expected as per the leakers.

The major “technical” upgrade will be in the area of “Screen Refresh Rate”, a 90Hz refresh rate even maybe 120Hz as expected by a few experienced leakers. I say this is the first time a “budget-midrange” handset of “Samsung” will have such “technical” improvements, even if it is 90Hz “Screen Refresh Rate”.

“Samsung Galaxy A72 5G” will have “QUAD-Camera” at the rear panel like its predecessor, “Galaxy A71”. “Galaxy A72 5G” is rumored to get a 64MP resolution main “primary” lens with an “f/1.8” aperture. Along with the primary lens, there will be a “telephoto” lens with 8MP resolution with f/2.4 aperture, an “ultra-wide” lens with 12MP resolution with f/2.2 aperture, and last not but least a 5MP resolution “macro” lens with f/2.4 aperture. The front “Selfie” camera is also rocking with a 32MP resolution sensor (f/2.2 & 26 mm). You can also shoot videos at 4k resolution. I think the “camera” configuration is pretty much fine in a “midrange” handset like this.


Samsung Galaxy A72 5G: Price and “Release Date”:

As per rumors, the “Galaxy A72 5G” will be a mid-range phone with major updates in “Processor” but the price range will be near about the same as the “Galaxy A72 4G” variant.

Leakers are expecting the price range of the 5G variant maybe $430.99to $499.99, as the pre-order booking of the “4G” variant starts from $429.99. I think this is an educated guess as the “5G” variant of “Galaxy A72” will have a “processor” update.

The release date is not yet clear. We can expect an official statement from Samsung very soon.
