Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021 in 3 minutes

At its second Unpacked event of the year, Samsung officially unveiled three of its next A-series phones: the Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A72. Key specs across the board include IP67 water and dust resistance, brighter screens with faster refresh rates, and a 64-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization. All three models include a microSD card slot for expandable storage and will ship with a charging brick in the box - features that you won’t find in the S21-series flagships. While the company isn’t sharing US pricing or availability yet, it has confirmed European pricing: €349 for the A52 (about $415), €429 for the A52 5G (about $510), and €449 for the A72 ($534).

    a52 4g bc apparently i needed a a stablle 4k footage on a cheap price (also since the redmi note 10 pro doesn’t have like what), also the 90 hz screen, and the matte back since it has grip and the samsung one ui since i like it.

    Samsung should learn from Apple. Apple never sell their products. People love them. Lot of people working with Android and Samsung use iPhones and macs everyday unlike Apple employees. It’s high yield stuff

    This makes Zero Sense they axed expandable storage on the S21 series even the Ultra but kept it on the budget phones, power users are a Lot more likely to use expandable storage than a budget buyer 🤨

    A52, the "new" but more expensive A71. A72, the upgraded A71, but disappointing camera specs for the price, and still no wireless charging, huh? Nope, its better to stick with a more affordable, fine and cheaper A71 this year. Both A52 and A72 don't make sense to me as an A70 and A71 owner. Looking ahead to the A73. Fingers crossed.

  70. Unknown Productions

    Unknown Productions28 days ago

    Me as well. They still need to work on their flagships. I have a Tab S6 I got around Christmas and Android 11 is the last update it gets as well as me not being able to update to Android 11 because of fragmented updates. Edit: I finally got it but it is the most underwhelming update I have ever seen.

  71. The Thriller

    The Thriller28 days ago

    @leonellthelion I'd really like to see the 5g version of a72 with 750g and 120hz display. What would be the ideal one. Maybe he will come up with that soon.

  72. leonellthelion

    leonellthelion29 days ago

    Same. I appreciate Samsung providing extra software services to its phones like Knox Security, Samsung Pass, and Secure Folder.

  73. Ashish Sunny

    I hope Samsung is trying to increase the longevity of their products. The last few slides gave some hope. My Galaxy S8 is 2.5 years old. It's so slow, now. (It's lost its smoothness after like 1 year) I'm disappointed. Apple products released in that era is still blazing fast and getting the latest software. I wont even get Android 10!

  87. Yaseen Muhammed

    Yaseen Muhammed28 days ago

    @Unknown Productions Hm.. I've also noticed performance difference for Samsung phones bought from different regions. Like Europe and North America vs Asia and Middle East.

  88. Unknown Productions

    My Tab S6 hasn't lost much performance yet but Android 11 is the last it's gonna get.

    I’m more interested in the presenters, more specifically their English. How many people do you think did not get this job just because they’re English was ever so slightly worse. They have really good English but you can tell the slight accents are not entirely gone. How much training do you think they underwent to perfect the language in a country where English is not a primary language. The hustle in this type of profession must be extremely cutthroat.

    cowegg23 days ago

    @OXIR Same here. I was waiting for the S20 Lite/FE ever since the S10 Lite launched. I was really hoping they’d launch it with SD here in India but they did not. I’m sick and tired of waiting for Samsung to not screw things but they keep doing it. I was hoping to get A72 had they launched it in December or January with SD765/SD750. I ended up with an iPhone 11. I went over twice my budget but I’m happy. It has A13 bionic with twice the benchmark scores and will stay up to date for 4 more years.

  101. Unknown Productions

    Unknown Productions28 days ago

    FE for sure

  102. OXIR

    OXIR28 days ago

    S20 FE (5G) To be honest the only reason I didn't get the S20 FE was because of Exynos 990. I heard so bad things about it and was scared of the performance. The 5G model which uses Snapdragon 865 was not available in my country.

  103. leonellthelion

    leonellthelion29 days ago

    S20FE has a better processor (SD 865) and a better array of rear camera. Plus, its an S-Series phone, a flagship.

    Apple actually knows how to optimize their phones. I have a family member with an iPad Mini 4 and it got iPad OS 14 and it runs smoothly. My Tab S6 is about to get it's last year of updates. Samsung still has no Android 11 for my Tab S6. Edit: I just got it today. Lol. It needs some performance issues to be ironed out but it was a very underwhelming update.
