Last year in December, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A71 smartphone and 5G versions were made official earlier this year. Fresh information shared by a South Korean publication reveals that Samsung is working on the Galaxy A72 smartphone. The report claims that the Galaxy A72 will be arriving as Samsung’s first smartphone with five rear-facing cameras.
The publication has learned through industry sources that Samsung plans to add on the rear side of the upcoming Galaxy A72 smartphone. While the Galaxy A71 debuted at the end of 2019, the Galaxy A72 is likely to go official in the first half of the coming year.
The rear camera setup of the Galaxy A72 is expected to include a 64-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, a 5-megapixel macro shooter, and a 5-megapixel bokeh lens. At the front, the device is expected to sport a 32-megapixel selfie snapper.
A report that surfaced in July had claimed that the Galaxy A72 will be arriving with support for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The Galaxy A5 2016 edition had arrived with OIS support, but none of the mid-range phones by Samsung have featured it. Samsung has been offering 3x optical zoom feature on flagship products like the Galaxy S20 lineup. The recently unveiled Galaxy S20 FE also features a 3x optical zoom supporting telephoto lens. At present, there is no information available on the other specs of the Galaxy A72.
The South Korean publication has further claimed that the Galaxy A52 will be arriving with quad rear cameras. A recent report had revealed that the Galaxy A52’s quadruple camera setup will have a 64-megapixel main camera will have a macro lens. The handset is expected to arrive in 4G and 5G versions.
