Samsung announced the Galaxy A72, Galaxy A52 and A52 5G smartphone at the “Galaxy Unpacked Event’ held on 17th of March. The Galaxy A52 comes with both 4G and 5G variant but unfortunately the 5G version is missing for A72. The all new Galaxy A72 comes with upgrades such as a high refresh rate, upgrades cameras, an IP-rating, and a bigger battery capacity. It is already available for purchase in Nepal. Let’s find the detail specs, features and the official price of the Samsung Galaxy A72 which is currently available in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy A72 Overview
Display and Design
The Samsung Galaxy A72 flaunts a 6.7” FHD+ Super AMOLED display. The display acquires a centered punch hole design as we have seen with a lot of Samsung phones released this year. As the company has slowly started to adopt the trend of high refresh rate in the device except flagship, the Galaxy A72 comes with 90Hz refresh rate. However, it is not an adaptive refresh rate. Thus, it stuck at either 60Hz or 90Hz.
On the illumination front, the phone boasts up to 800 units of peak brightness. Beside that it has SGS certifications against blue light emission and Widevine L1 certification for watching HD content from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and other streaming services.
Like I mentioned earlier, the Galaxy A72 display comes with a centered punch hole. On the back is a camera housing with four sensors and an LED flash like Galaxy S21. The back of the phone is covered in polycarbonate and the company has traded the reflective back (Galaxy A71) panel for matte finish. Meanwhile, one commendable addition is that Samsung has added IP67 rating making it water (up to 1m for up to 30 minutes) and dust resistant.
Many times Samsung has offered their handset in stunning finishes, never failed to impress. This time the company has again played with colors and the phone is available in Awesome Black, Awesome Blue, Awesome Violet, and Awesome White colors.
Performance and Memory
The phone swaps the Snapdragon 730 processor of the Galaxy A71 for the Snapdragon 720G. It is an an octa-core CPU with two high-performance cores clocked at 2.3Ghz and 6 low-power cores clocked at 1.8Ghz. The chipset teams with 6GB/8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. A MicroSD card slot will allow you to expand up to an extra 1TB of storage.
The phone ships with a Samsung\s latest One UI 3.1 on top of Android 11. Moreover, Samsung has guaranteed up to 4 years of security updates and up to 3 generation of Android update.
Samsung has noticed that people are fascinated with quality photos and videos. So, the company has brought decent camera upgrade on this smartphone to level up photo and video experience in Galaxy A series. You get quad cam on this phone: a 64MP primary lens, a 12MP ultrawide, 8MP telephoto (with 3x optical zoom), and a 5MP macro. Likewise, you get 32MP sensor for capturing selfies.
You also get Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on the primary and telephoto sensors to help eliminate hand shakiness. The ultrawide and macro cameras lack OIS. Similarly, the telephoto lens offers 3x optical zoom and 30x space zoom.
For video, the Galaxy A72 lets you record at up to 4K/30fps from rear as well as front camera. You can also snap an 8MP still image from any video thanks to the “4K Video Snap” feature. The handset also comes with an AI scene detection to better optimize shots and its impressive Night Mode for grabbing low-light photos. It also adopts Single Take from the Galaxy S series, so you can take photos from different cameras with one shutter press. Further, a partnership with Snapchat adds a Fun Mode that bundles in filters and AR effects in stock camera app.
Battery and Miscellaneous
The Galaxy A72 is backed a massive 5,000mAh battery. Considering the FHD display and power-efficient processor, we expect this phone to go a long way even if you’re gaming or watching videos. Meanwhile the company has touted 2 days of battery life. For charging, the A72 supports 25W wired fast charging however it ships with 15W charger which is nothing short of disappointing.
Other notable features include Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, an audio jack, a USB-C, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
