Samsung Galaxy A52 Overview
Display and Design

Importantly, the panel features 90Hz refresh rate, Earlier, we have seen Galaxy A32 4G with the higher refresh rate which is the first non-flagship phone to feature it from the company.

Moreover, the displays pack SGS Eye Care certifications for low blue light emission. It has a peak brightness of 800 nits. Similarly, an optical fingerprint scanner is also present underneath the display.
Moving on, the phones look more premium than the Galaxy A51 as they feature a new matte haze finish and a soft edge around the camera island.
