A recent report had claimed that the smartphone will be launched in both 4G and 5G variants. Rumours also suggest that the smartphone will have a 64-megapixel primary sensor in a quad rear camera setup. Some renders of the rumoured handset shared by a tipster recently show the phone sporting a flat display with a hole-punch cutout.
As per the listing on Geekbench, a phone with model number SM-A725F, believed to be Samsung Galaxy A72 4G, could come with 8GB of RAM and Android 11. The phone gets a single-core test score of 526 and multi-core test score of 1,623, and is listed with a Qualcomm processor codenamed ‘atoll', which is associated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC.

The Galaxy A72 4G could come equipped with a 64-megapixel primary shooter in a quad rear camera setup, which was previously thought to be a penta camera setup. Alleged renders of the smartphone were also leaked by tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, via Voice. They show the Samsung handset with a flat display and a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera in the middle and not the top-corner of the screen. A quad rear camera can also be seen in the renders.
Hemmerstoffer claims that the Samsung Galaxy A72 will feature a plastic back panel with an aluminium frame. The phone is also said to come with a 6.7-inch display, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, and a speaker grille at the bottom.
