Samsung Galaxy A52 5G has reportedly been spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, suggesting imminent launch of the smartphone in India. Samsung launched a 4G variant with 90Hz display, and the 5G variant with 120Hz display in Europe a few weeks ago. Apart from connectivity option, the major differences between both the handsets are the SoCs under the hood, and the refresh rates of their displays. The 5G variant has 120Hz display, which means that customers in India are expected to get a high-refresh rate variant as well.
As per a report by 91Mobiles, the BIS listing shows that Samsung Galaxy A52 5G has model number SM-A526B/DS. A Samsung smartphone with a similar model number was also spotted on US FCC website earlier this year. The phone was also sighted on Bluetooth SIG certification site, however, it had a different model number. As mentioned, the phone was launched in Europe last month, and its price starts at EUR 429 (roughly Rs. 37,000). It debuted in Awesome Black, Awesome Blue, Awesome Violet, and Awesome White colours. There is no information on the India pricing yet.
