The newest set of Galaxy A series smartphones launched in various markets on March 17. Each market had its own set of A-series phones. For Malaysia it’s the following: Galaxy A72, Galaxy A52, Galaxy A32, and Galaxy A32 5G.

We’ve got the low down for you in this video.

But if you don’t feel like watching, here’s a quick rundown of everything that’s coming to Malaysia.

Galaxy A32 and Galaxy A32 5G

The Galaxy A32 5G shares components and specs comparable to flagships from the past with some features from flagships of the present. It’s rocking a 6.5inch HD+ PLS TFC LCD display with a 60Hz refresh rate. Housed inside its Infinity-V display is a 13MP f/2.2 selfie shooter.

On the back it’s rocking a quad-camera setup: 48MP f/1.8 main, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, 5MP f/2.4 macro, and 2MP f/2.4 depth. It goes up to 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage that’s expandable up to 1TB.  Supporting all these is a 5,000mAh battery.

Galaxy A52

The Galaxy A52 carries the legacy of the Galaxy A51 — one of Samsung’s best-selling handsets in 2020. It stays true to its earworm of a song which says it has an awesome screen (6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED, 120Hz), awesome camera (Front: 32MP f/2.2, Rear: 64MP f/1.8 main, 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide, 5MP f/2.4 macro, and 5MP f/2.4 depth), and long-lasting battery life (4,500mAh battery with power optimization via ONE UI 3).

All-new PlayStation Plus coming to Asia on May 23

Excluding Japan

Published

on

In case you missed it, PlayStation has announced a brand spanking PlayStation Plus. They introduced three new tiers, expanding the service to include more games. At the time, we didn’t know exactly when the service will come. Only a vague June 2022 date was shared. Now, we know it’s heading to Asian markets first, excluding Japan, on May 23.

PlayStation didn’t specify on their blog why Asia is getting it first. But we speculate it’s likely because it’s easier to implement a download only option tiers versus the ones that include cloud streaming.

If you will recall, Asian markets won’t get the streaming option. And instead of the highest tier being called PlayStation Plus Premium, the region is instead getting PlayStation Plus Deluxe. With the primary difference being the lack of streaming option, which also means no access to PS3 titles.

There are still no concrete dates on when the all-new PlayStation Plus will hit other markets. But they did share target dates. They are as follows:

  • Japan — targeting June 1, 2022
  • Americas — targeting June 13, 2022
  •  Europe — targeting June 22, 2022

How will this affect my current subscription?

If you’re an existing PlayStation Plus subscriber and don’t really feel like upgrading then you can just stand pat. Your service will just be renamed PlayStation Plus Essential but will still get all the same benefits. No changes will be applied to your existing subscription unless: 1) You make any changes yourself, 2) Your subscription expires.

What if you want to upgrade? You can do that any time. You only need to pay he difference between your current plan and your new plan, adjusted for the remaining time of your subscription.

PlayStation Plus Extra and Deluxe

If you do decide to upgrade, here’s a brief look at what you’re getting:

PlayStation Plus Extra

Provides all the benefits from the Essential tier plus a catalogue1 of up to 400 of the most enjoyable PS4 and PS5 games, including:

  • Death Stranding
  • God of War
  • Mortal Kombat 11
  • Returnal
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

PlayStation Plus Deluxe
