Here are the US pre-order prices of Samsung's Galaxy A52, A72, and A32
There used to be a time (not that long ago) when Samsung relied almost entirely on its high-end Galaxy S and Note families to stay ahead of Apple in the global smartphone market. Nowadays, however, the company's Galaxy A-series mid-rangers are frequently ranked among the world's top-selling models, while their flagship cousins are... not.

It should thus come as no surprise that the Galaxy A52 and A72 got their own glamorous Unpacked event last week, but although Samsung spent quite a bit of time hyping up some of the key selling points of its latest upper mid-end handsets during this official announcement, a couple of important availability details were left up in the air.

While the two impressive new phones are not up for grabs just yet directly from their manufacturer's US e-store, a major third-party retailer seems to have quietly kicked off its pre-orders on a "first-come-first served basis" for both these models, as well as the slightly older and humbler Galaxy A32. Granted, there's no way to know at the moment if the price tags listed at B&H Photo Video will align with Samsung's MSRPs.

There's also a possibility B&H is merely gearing up to sell "international" variants compatible with US LTE networks here rather than devices designed specifically for use stateside. Finally, it's worth pointing out that all shipping dates are under wraps, so Samsung may or may not follow suit with its own official pre-order start soon. With everything in mind, let's take a quick look at these likely US prices.

The Galaxy A52 is cheaper than the A51


No, we're almost certainly not dealing with a 5G-enabled version here, but $369.99 is arguably a very low price to pay even for a 4G LTE-only 6.5-inch handset sporting a smooth 90Hz Super AMOLED display, as well as an IP67 water and dust-resistant construction, a large 4,500mAh battery, and a 64MP primary rear-facing camera.

Compared to its $400 predecessor, the Galaxy A52 also packs an upgraded Snapdragon 720 processor and faster 25W charging while obviously running Android 11 with One UI 3 on top on the software side of things out the box.


Available in black, blue, lavender, and white colors, the premium-looking plastic phone will presumably pair 4 gigs of RAM with 128 gigs of internal storage space in its entry-level configuration. And yes, you also get everything from a microSD card slot to a headphone jack and even a good old fashioned charger included for your 370 bucks.

The Galaxy A72 is extremely affordable as well


Despite enhancing everything from the A52's quad shooter system to its screen size, battery capacity, and memory count, the (4G LTE-only) Galaxy A72 is available for a measly $60 more in the same nice quartet of paint jobs.

At $429.99, the 6.7-inch device is a whopping 170 bucks cheaper than the Galaxy A71 5G back at launch... with a slightly slower Snapdragon 720 SoC under the hood. The cameras are likely better on the A72 and the battery definitely larger, so choosing between the two feels like a no-brainer, especially when you consider the current limitations of the low and mid-band US 5G technology.

The Galaxy A32 is... coming to the US?!


Unlike the A51 and A71 5G, last year's A31 was never officially released stateside, which makes us skeptical of this particular B&H listing. But if the Galaxy A32 is indeed set to make its US commercial debut soon at $269.99, the likes of Motorola's Moto G Power (2021) are in great danger in the sub-$300 segment.

That's because the A32 somehow squeezes an equally ginormous 5,000mAh battery into a shorter, narrower, thinner, and lighter body while featuring a far more advanced camera setup, as well as a sharper screen with 90Hz refresh rate capabilities and fancier under-display fingerprint recognition technology.
