Samsung’s A series line up is its cast of cheap and cheerful smartphones aimed at millennial consumers.

The A Series focuses on offering better cameras, a high-quality screen and battery life to appeal to social media fans.

The latest entry to the series was announced in a post to Samsung’s website on Tuesday.

The A52s 5G packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and is priced at £409 – just £10 more than the same configuration on the A52.

A beefier 8GB + 256GB model is also primed for release, though pricing and availability of that version is not yet known.

The key difference is that the A52s is equipped with Qualcomm’s upgraded Snapdragon 778G processor for improved performance, Samsung said.

It’s also available in a new “Awesome Mint” colour variant.

The mobile possibly offers better value than some of the latest iPhones.

That’s because you get flagship features like 5G connectivity and a two-day battery life while paying half the cost of the iPhone 12.

Mid-range smartphones have become increasingly popular in recent years as technological advances have made high-end features accessible beyond just £1,000 flagship devices.

As a result, many people choose to hold on to their phone for longer because of the rising costs.
