Most should know by now that Samsung will likely unveil the Galaxy S21 series at CES 2021. But the company could be gearing up to launch a new mid-range as well. Sources indicate that Samsung has begun to register the certifications for the Galaxy A72, which suggests an imminent launch.
The listing was discovered by @the_tech_guy, who found the device with model number "SM-A725F/DS" certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). This should be the Galaxy A72, which is expected to house a Snapdragon 720G chipset. In addition to that, it's said that there would be a 5G variant with a more powerful Exynos chipset, meaning there are at least two variants of the phone. For the SEA region, we're predicting that the 4G variant will be the first to be launched.

There hasn't been much news on the Galaxy A72 so far. However, some leaked renders of the phone appeared previously, which confirmed the design of the phone. The renders aren't the clearest, but we can vaguely see that it has four rear cameras (64MP+8MP+5MP+5MP) as some sources suggested. Aside from that, the phone is also expected to come with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display.
Depending on the price, this upper mid-range device could be great for those who want a phone with performance on par with a flagship and is more affordable. But what do you think? Would you settle for a mid-range in 2021 or is a flagship still better for things like mobile games? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
