Today, a new device from Samsung with a model number “SM-A526B” has been spotted on Geekbench. According to the model number, it can be observed that this is the 5G version of Samsung’s upcoming famous mid-range device – Galaxy A52.
The previous model, Galaxy A51 5G, has almost the same model number SM-A516B. As per reports, the letter B represents the 5G version.
In the Geekbench, it can be seen that this new model of Samsung Galaxy A series is powered by Qualcomm’s mid-range chipset “Snapdragon 750G (8nm)”. The Snapdragon 750G is an octa-core chipset that has a maximum frequency of 2.2 GHz. The variant which got spotted on Geekbench has 6 Gigs of RAM.
The 5G version will use Qualcomm’s 5G supported chipset. It may be limited to some countries. On the other hand, the 4G version is expected to feature an Exynos chipset. It may be Exynos 1080, which has been revealed by Samsung, a few days ago.
Another chipset named “Exynos 981” is also expected to be featured in the 4G variant. The Exynos 981 is a little upgrade over the previous Exynos 980 5G chipset. It was also rumored that the new Galaxy A52 would feature a quin-tuple camera setup on the backside. The previous model has a quad-camera design with a primary 48MP sensor.
Currently, this new model is expected to launch in the 1st Quarter of 2021.
