The new Samsung Galaxy “Awesome Unpacked” event is said to be for the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy A52 and Samsung Galaxy A72 smartphones as the “awesome” themed promotion is similar to the flavour Samsung gave to last year’s Samsung Galaxy A-series smartphones.

Both the Galaxy A52 and the Galaxy A72 have been leaked several times in the past couple of months, hinting at the two smartphones coming with high refresh rate displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, and more.
