As we are close to 2021, the leaks are coming faster, which is when Samsung is expected to announce a new batch of smartphones.
We’ve seen glimpses of what the Galaxy S21 flagship might look like, and it seems we’ve got our first look at the top of the budget-friendlier A-series thanks to serial-leaker OnLeaks / Steve Hemmerstoffer.
These suspected Galaxy A72 5G renderers suggest that the improvements to its A71 predecessor are slight, at least on the outside.
The photos show a 6.7-inch monitor, which is compatible with the A71, with a centered hole-punch camera. A very nice 1080 x 2400 pixel Super AMOLED Plus panel was used on that device.
Three rear-facing cameras plus a depth sensor tend to be provided by the A72, which is also consistent with the previous model, although the location of the flash and depth camera has slightly changed.
For comparison, the A71 supported an ultra-wide 12-megapixel, 5-megapixel macro, and 5-megapixel depth-sensing imager for the 64-megapixel main camera (one of its main differentiators from the step-down A51 5G).
It seems like we’re all going to be able to purchase phones with a 3.5mm headphone port. The A71 provided one, and for the next generation at least it looks like the feature is sticking around.
And obviously, we should expect to see the headline feature of the handset, 5G connectivity, also provided in the next generation.
The A71 offered 5G connectivity for both mmWave and sub-600MHz spectrum, so it’s more than fair to think the A72 would too.
