If want 5G, go get a flagship phone. Haha.
For our 3 telco, doesn’t really matter for the year of 2022 and even 2023 as currently the 5G SA rollout and coverage is not as wide therefore most of the time is connected to 5G NSA but still faster than 4G. I usually left my iPhone 13 Pro 5G SA option as off as it quite a pain in the ass to use when it try to switchover and data will drop.Only reason I can think of is that they are willing to pay for 5G plans and the A52s apparently doesn't support 5G SA according to our local telcos.
It's kind of confusing, cos I thought the X53 Modem for the Qualcomm 778G chipset does support SA. (Source: Wikipedia)

Qualcomm also states it supports both SA and NSA in the official chipset brief.
Other reason I can think of is band support - perhaps the local bands are not supported by these phone models.
Unless Samsung didn't implement it in the hardware somehow? I don't know if it's possible to enable it with a software update, though. Of course, this assumes Samsung wants to do that.
It's the same thing that happened for early adopters of 4G too.for my case, 5g also uses battery much faster and made my a52 warmer..
Galaxy A52S 5G, features super smoothv infinity – O display super AMOLED, 64MP Camera with OIS, water resistance IP67, 25W fast charging, and 4,500mAh battery.www.samsung.com
$120 off purchase of A52s. Wonder when will 'Coming soon' button become 'Buy'.
Anyone knows when will this offer start?
I wouldn't anticipate them restocking an older model when the newer one is released as it'll cannibalise sales. And they know that users will prefer the A52s over their newer A53 for chipset reasons alone.Hopefully the stocks will return. Waiting for it to become "Buy" too.
