Galaxy A51 5G goes on pre-sale in China, sells out on day-one

The Galaxy A51 5G has been introduced to China on pre-sale terms via JD, and the phone is already out of stock, one day after the pre-sale went live. China is the market with the highest demand for 5G in the world, and the Galaxy A51 5G’s apparent success further highlights this fact.

It’s too early to tell just how well-received the Galaxy A51 5G will be in China in the long run and whether it will be able to compete with rival phones from local OEMs, but Samsung plans to combat the 2020 slump in smartphone sales with affordable 5G solutions. The 5G era could contribute to Samsung bolstering its position in the Far Eastern country’s smartphone segment, and the Galaxy A51 5G could play an important role in this.

The pre-sale in China lasts for 11 more days

The Galaxy A51 5G is offered by JD on pre-sale terms for 2,999 yuan ($422). The phone is already sold out, as mentioned above, however, new stock is likely to arrive at some point over the next few days. The smartphone is expected to ship beginning June 1.

Samsung’s mid-range 5G solution is nearly identical to the 4G Galaxy A51, except it’s equipped with an Exynos 980 chipset (as opposed to an Exynos 9611), and a larger 4,500mAh battery, up from the LTE model’s 4,000mAh unit.
