The Samsung Galaxy A52 comes with a slower 15W charger despite supporting 25W charging which has caused some controversy. The Samsung Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G and Galaxy A72, the three new smartphones in the Galaxy A series, come with support for 25W fast charging. Instead of including 25W chargers with all three Galaxy phones , the company is shipping a 15W charger with the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G. This is not the case with the high-end A series phone, the Samsung Galaxy A72, as it comes with a 25W charger. The Samsung Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G and Galaxy A72 all support Samsung’s Quick Charge 2.0 and Adaptive Fast Charging (AFC) technologies.
The Samsung Newsroom site reveals that the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G comes with a 15W charger, even though it has support for 25W fast charging. Samsung’s Australia site also indicates that the 4G version of the Galaxy A52 does not come with a 25W charger. However, the Samsung Galaxy A72 comes with a 25W fast charger.
Samsung brought the Galaxy A52 as the successor to the Galaxy A51 that supported 15W fast charging. The previous model included a 15W fast charger in the box, which appears to have been retained for the new Galaxy A52 phone.
While Samsung hasn’t clarified why it doesn’t include a 25W charger with the Galaxy A52 models, the cost seems to be the only reason given that it comes with the more expensive Galaxy A72. GizmoChina initially reported on the disparity between the three Galaxy A series phones.
In any case, Samsung has included chargers with its new Galaxy A-series phones, which is different from the Galaxy S21 series that debuted without charging accessories in the box.
The Samsung Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G have a 4,500 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy A72 has a 5000 mAh battery. Gadgets 360 has reached out to Samsung to clarify whether the Galaxy A52 will be launched in India with the same 15W charger offered in the global market. This story will be updated when the company responds.
