Samsung has announced the Galaxy A72 4G smartphone today, unfortunately, the 5G version is missing in action. The new phone comes with upgrades such as a high refresh rate, upgrades cameras, an IP-rating, and a bigger battery capacity.
Galaxy A72 Design
Just as we have seen with a lot of Samsung phones released this year, the Galaxy A72 4G also comes with a display with a centered punch hole. On the back is a camera housing with four sensors and an LED flash. The back of the phone is covered in polycarbonate and one commendable addition is that the Galaxy A72 4G has an IP67 rating making it water (up to 1m for up to 30 minutes) and dust resistant.
Samsung has shown time and time again that it is not afraid of playing with colors and it does that again with the new Galaxy A72. The phone is available in Awesome Black, Awesome Blue, Awesome Violet, and Awesome White.
Galaxy A72 4G specifications
The Galaxy A72 4G has a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a brightness of up to 800 nits, SGS Eye Comfort Shield, and a 90Hz refresh rate. Samsung doesn’t say if the device has HDR10, so we will assume it doesn’t just like its predecessor.
The phone swaps the Snapdragon 730 processor of the Galaxy A71 for the Snapdragon 720G and it comes with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. A MicroSD card slot will allow you to add up to an extra 1TB of storage.
You get four rear cameras on the Galaxy A72 4G – a 64MP f/1.8 camera with optical image st abilization, a 12MP f/2.2 ultrawide angle camera with a 123° field of view, an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera with OIS and 3x optical zoom, and a 5MP f/2.4 macro camera. Samsung says the phone also has 30x Space Zoom. The front-facing camera is a 32MP sensor.
The Galaxy A72 4G has Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, an audio jack, a USB-C, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Samsung has bumped the battery capacity to 5000mAh and while the phone still supports 25W fast charging like its predecessor, Samsung now ships it with a slower 15W charger which is nothing short of disappointing.
Galaxy A72 Price and Availability
The phone will be sold for €450/£420 for the base model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There is no price yet for the 8GB RAM + 256GB version.
