. Today i have with me the new galaxy a52. Now this is one of the two phones that samsung has launched in india. The other one is the galaxy a72. Now there is a 5g variant of this particular device called the galaxy a525g, but samsung isn’t launching it in india, yet maybe at a later point, but now that i have this device, i am curious to see how it is so let’s go ahead. Unbox this device and take a first look, however, before i proceed well, if you’re new here be sure you are subscribed to the galaxy 360 youtube channel and click on that bell, icon, so that you are notified whenever we upload a new video Music. So this is what the box of the galaxy a52 looks like now. There are no specifications on here, so let’s go ahead and unbox it. So this is the galaxy a52 it’s got a matte. Like finish, i think you will be able to see it now and it does look different. I would say i’m going to quickly power it on keep it aside and let’s check. What else do you get in the box and in the box you get a 15 watt charger, though the device is capable of 25 watt fast. Charging next is the cable, so you do have a type, a to type c: cable, that’s in the box. It’S a neat touch, and this has the type input nothing else in the box, so i’m going to keep this aside.
Let’S quickly check. If there is something here. This is the sim eject tool. I’Ve got some documentation here, so there’s no case in the box. So something you might want to buy when you are buying this smartphone. Now, while i am setting this device up, i will talk you through the specifications of the device, so you get a 6.5 inch full hd plus super amoled display and a 90 hertz refresh rate at the top you’ve got a hole punch which samsung refers to as An infinity oh display and has a 32 megapixel selfie camera there in terms of the thickness, or rather the weight of the device. The phone weighs around 190 grams, so it is well lighter than some of the other phones i have tested recently at the back. You get a quad camera setup and the big three lenses they kind of remind me of the galaxy s21 here, but you get a quad camera setup with a 64 megapixel primary camera, a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle, camera with 123 degree field of view. You get a 5 megapixel macro camera and a 5 megapixel depth sensor. So this is the depth sensor here. This is the macro camera. In terms of the battery capacity, you get a 4 500 milliamp hour battery. Now the button placement is all on the right here. As you can see, the power button is convenient, it’s easy to hit the volume rocker. It does require a little bit of stretching it’s, not a problem there.
I think the back is fingerprint resistant, but it might just pick just pick very, very few fingerprints it’s not that easy to spot the camera module 2 is very slightly raised. I’M, not sure if you can see it here, it’s very slightly erased once it’s the same color it doesn’t stand out in particular now this phone does have stereo speakers, so that is something nice also get an ip67 rating for dust and water resistance. So that is something that was earlier common on the galaxy, a series, but it wasn’t for a while, so the a52 gets it back and it has an in display fingerprint scanner. Now you haven’t seen a physical scanner anywhere let’s quickly set up the in display fingerprint Music let’s. Take a look at the software on the galaxy a52. Now there are a few recommended apps that samsung has checked by default. I don’t want to install them. If you do find them useful, you can go ahead and install them. You also can sign into a samsung galaxy account if you have it i’m skipping that step now. Let’S talk about the processor that is powering this device, so you get a qualcomm snapdragon, 720 g soc. There are three ram options, so you do have a 4gb of ram 6gb of ram or 8gb of ram to choose from and two storage options. The one that i have here is the 6 gb ram option with 128 gb of storage.
As you can see in terms of sports, you’ve got the 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom. The usb type c port bottom firing speaker and at the top you’ve got the secondary microphone and the sim tray. The left is repair, so let’s go ahead quickly. Pop that sim tray open and check what kind of setup do we get. So, as you can see, this is a hybrid sim setup. You can use two nano sim cards or one nano and a micro sd card slot and, as you can see, it also has a rubber seal around it, which helps waterproofing the device quite well. So this is android 11 and along with one ui 3.1. So this is not one ui core, but this is one ui 3.1. So you do have a few apps pre installed. You’Ve got amazon phone pay, snapchat, facebook and a few more. I think you should be able to uninstall it right away. So if you don’t use them, you can go ahead and uninstall them. You’Ve got the december security patch here, it’s slightly dated but i’m sure it’s gon na get an update soon. If you just unboxed it quickly check. If there is a software update available. Yes, so there is a software update available with the feb security patch, so that is fairly recent and acceptable. So let it install that one ui 3.1 is very familiar. If you’ve used the samsung phone before you will find yourself at home it’s very easy to use.
I do like the way this phone feels in the hand. I will be reviewing this device. So if you don’t want to miss that be sure you are subscribed to cash 360, youtube channel, i’ll, see you in the next one, and that was a quick unboxing and my first look at the galaxy a52. Now.
