Flagships are more expensive than ever these days, but you don't need to break the bank to get a great daily driver. Mid-range devices offer decent performance for the price point, and though they may not compete with gaming phones and foldables, they're more than enough for sending messages and watching a few YouTube videos. Samsung's Galaxy A52 5G is one of the best mid-rangers you can buy right now, and with today's deal, it's an even better value.
Samsung's A-series phones have become a known quantity: they're good, moderately priced devices, targeted at folks who might not care what processor their phone has or even know what RAM is. But as the delta between mid-range and flagship shrinks, less-expensive options like the Galaxy A52 are getting better and better — you don't have to give up nearly as much to save some money as you used to. The A52 is so solid, in fact, that I wouldn't mind using it full time — if it weren't for a couple sore spots, anyway.
After accidentally teasing a few upcoming phones before removing them again earlier this year, Google has published a proper update to its ARCore support page, revealing that the augmented reality library is now supported by 24 more devices. This time around, all of them have already been announced.
Samsung's been killing it with its mid-range offerings lately. We loved last year's Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 — between those and the higher-end S20 FE, the company had a lot to offer those of us who didn't want to drop a grand on a phone in 2020. Today, Samsung announced three new additions to its sub-flagship lineup: the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A72. They've got some big shoes to fill.
Samsung has so many smartphone series on the go that there's always something to look forward to. Of late, we've been hearing a lot about the broad Galaxy A series and it seems like the A52 and the A72 are not far off from being announced. They've just been spotted on official support pages and hands-on photos have been leaked.
Samsung's Galaxy A51 was one of the company's best phones last year, offering a large 6.5-inch screen and good performance for the relatively low price of $400 (before all the sales started). Unsurprisingly, Samsung is working on a sequel, and now we have images of the phone from WinFuture.
