Yes it can, just follow this tutorial.
Any phone can be rooted, as long as you can unlock the bootloader.
Please read the instructions on the page carefully and don't skip any text. All of it is important.

Thanks for this.

I'm stuck, because there is no "OEM unlocking" option visible in Developer Options. Any ideas?
My phone is the Galaxy A52 5G (SM-A526U1), running Android 11.

Didn't happen to me, but I heard you had to wait one week after connecting your phone to Wi-Fi for the first time ever. How new is your phone?
OK, that could be it -- I've had it for about a week, but I did a factory reset a couple days ago. I'll report back on whether the OEM Unlocking option appears in a few days.

I have had mine since the end of Sept, and mine does not show OEM unlock period. in Dev options.. Maybe it is because it is a T-Mobile phone, and the fact, the I have only had Dev options enabled for about 4 days...

I don't think unlocking the bootloader of a carrier-locked phone is possible. See this thread. You might have to call T-Mobile and ask them to unlock your phone.
Edit: Also check this thread reply

Hi I'm pretty new to this forum, I also need to root my A52s 5G

So, we have someone who has succeeded, in the end, in rooting the a52s 5G ?

Modell info:
SM-A528B/DS
Android version 11
Knox 3.7
API level 33
I see "OEM unlock" option on developer options.
Hope someone helps us with this.

The main purpose I want to Root, is that I should be able to install a call recorder, and record calls.
Because in my region "Sweden", call recording is not visible.

Hello friends.
I also can not root the Samsung M52 5G. Something is missing for rooting those devices. Patched Magisk is not working.
