Samsung Galaxy A72 will apparently be the first Samsung phone with Penta-Cam
The first smartphone with Penta-Cam will not be a Galaxy S21 but the successor to the Galaxy A71. From South Korea, detailed information is leaking about the five cameras on the back of the Galaxy A72, which is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2021.
Based on industry insiders, the South Korean industry magazine TheElec recently reported on detailed camera specifications for the successor to the premium mid-ranger Galaxy A71 expected in 2021 (currently available on Amazon from 308 euros). The Samsung phone is set to be the electronics specialists’ first smartphone with a Penta-Cam next year, and the Galaxy A71 is currently already offering a quad-cam.
In addition to the five-fold camera, the Galaxy A72 should therefore receive a 32 megapixel selfie cam, the main sensor on the back remains at 64 megapixels, as does the 12 megapixel ultra-wide-angle cam and the two 5 megapixel macro and bokeh shooters. On the other hand, a new addition to the group is an 8 megapixel telephoto optic, which is supposed to offer 3x optical zoom, roughly what is currently in the recently presented Galaxy S20 FE.
The magazine also commented on the successor to the popular Galaxy A51. In contrast to the Galaxy A72, the Galaxy A52 should not have a Penta-Cam and instead offer four cameras. The Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72 should together generate around 10 percent of the total smartphone volume sold in 2019, the sales target is accordingly 30 million units. They are expected in the first half of 2021.
