The upcoming Samsung Galaxy A72 may inherit a game-changing camera feature thats only been seen in the brands flagship phones like the Samsung S21: Space Zoom, reaching up to 30x digital magnification. 

Thats just one detail in a large specs leak by YouTuber TechTalkTV

, who shared the information via a series of tweets. Most of these echo the specs weve seen rumored

previously, but this is the first weve heard that one of the Samsung Galaxy S21 ranges best features is trickling down to the brands mid-range phones.

Space Zoom, a feature introduced in the Samsung Galaxy S20 line, manages 30x digital magnification, and its much crisper at that maximum in the S21 range. Trickling this feature down to the Galaxy A72 is a great boon for folks who dont want to pay flagship phone prices for Samsung quality but its also very impressive given its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A71, didnt have a telephoto lens at all (just a 5MP depth sensor). 

Weve heard plenty of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy A72 that paint a pretty clear picture of what kind of phone were likely to get. 

The aforementioned specs leaks, along with this one, suggest a 4G-only phone powered by a Snapdragon 720G chipset, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of storage, though thats expandable via microSD (up to 1TB, the new leak suggests). Leaks suggest it will have a 6.7-inch Full HD Plus (2400 x 1080) AMOLED display with in-screen fingerprint scanner and 90Hz refresh rate. 

With a 5,000mAh battery, Android 11, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, were expecting a solid mid-range device much like its predecessor.

Its the cameras that could differentiate the A72 from last years Samsung A71: while wed heard about a 32MP selfie, 64MP main shooter, 12MP ultra-wide, and 2MP macro shooter, wed only heard about an 8MP camera that could be telephoto. The new leak suggests that latter shooter will indeed be an 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom.

While thats below the 64MP 3x optical telephoto lens on the Samsung Galaxy S21 which could mean the A72s 8MP lens will take blurrier photos at maximum magnification Space Zoom is still a neat feature that broadens the mid-range phones photographic capabilities.
