The Galaxy A71 (together with its 5G variant) was considered one of Samsung’s best-selling smartphones this yr, providing many of the options you possibly can need in a telephone at a mid-range worth. Samsung now appears to be planning a {hardware} refresh, as system renders have now been printed by Steve Hemmerstoffer (OnLeaks).

Based on the data and photographs revealed by OnLeaks, the Galaxy A72 5G will not be too totally different from the prevailing A71.

The remainder of the {hardware} particulars are nonetheless unknown, however we will make some educated guesses. The A71 used a Snapdragon 765G chipset, however since there is no direct successor to the 765G but, the A72 will most likely persist with that.
