Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G now in Singapore

A slight edge over its predecessor

Published

on

Samsung has quickly followed up the Galaxy A52 5G that was launched just months ago with the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G. These minor upgrades always drives us nuts, but it’s one of brands’ ways of making sure they always have something fresh to offer.

Let’s get down to the meat of it. You’re not going to find plenty of differences between the two. To be exact, in terms of components, the upgrade is primarily in the performance department. The Galaxy A52 5G sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chip with the Adreno 619 GPU. The Galaxy A52s 5G has been bumped up to the Snapdragon 778G and Adreno 642L GPU. Other than these two components, the rest of the phones are practically interchangeable.

Here’s a quick look at the Galaxy A52s 5G’s specs:

  • Display — 6.5″ FHD+ Super AMOLED, 120Hz
  • OS — Android, ONE UI
  • RAM and Storage — 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, supports microSD external storage up to 1TB
  • Processor — Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, Adreno 642L GPU
  • Battery — 4,500mAh
  • Rear Cameras — 64MP f/1.8 main, 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, 5MP f/2.4 macro, 5MP f/2.4 depth
  • Front Camera – 32MP f/2.2

It’s every bit everything you’ve come to expect from the pretty excellent Galaxy A series. You have your usual sensors for security like Face Unlock and Fingreprint recognition. It also still has an IP67 rating giving you a little bit of piece of mind in wet and dusty scenarios.

Pricing and availability

The Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is currently available in Singapore through various telecommunication providers. These are M1, Singtel, and Starhub. It’s also available at Samsung Online StoreSamsung Experience Stores, and Samsung Official Stores in Lazada and Shopee.

Pricing are as follows:

  • 8GB+128GB — SG$ 548
  • 8GB+128GB — SG$ 548

From September 18 to October 10, consumers who purchase the Galaxy A52s 5G via telecommunication providers (M1, Singtel and StarHub) and Samsung Online Store can also enjoy SG$ 30 off their purchase of Galaxy Buds2.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5

Published

on

Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
