Regardless of the particular outline, the main camera hub is obviously inspired by the original design language of the Galaxy A51 and the Galaxy Note 20 family.

The device measures 159.9 x 75.1 x 8.4 mm and weighs 189 grams. The display has Gorilla Glass 5, the frame is made of plastic as well as the back panel. At the bottom of the phone you will find the 3.5mm audio jack, Type-C port, and a single bottom-firing speaker.

The stereo loudspeaker setup on the Galaxy A52 is a hybrid one, in this the earpiece acting as the second speaker. At the top of the device is a secondary noise-cancellation mic and a dual Nano-SIM card tray. The tray is also a hybrid one with the second slot doubling as a microSD slot.
