Galaxy A51 5G nearing European release as Samsung tips hand


Last updated: April 24th, 2020 at 11:56 UTC+02:00

The European release of the Galaxy A51 5G appears to be imminent, even though Samsung has yet to attach an official date to the smartphone. Two weeks after announcing its latest Android mid-ranger, the company tipped its hand by the way of some early accessory listings. More specifically, Samsung will be launching an S View case alongside the device, available in Black and White.

The protective accessory will be priced at around €40 ($45), according to a pair of premature product pages put up by Samsung Switzerland. It’s likely this won’t be the only first-party extras Samsung releases alongside the aggressively priced handset.

Why Samsung has high hopes for Galaxy A51 5G

The tech giant is reportedly highly invested in the second generation of 5G smartphones. According to recent industry rumblings, Samsung believes it can revitalize its dwindling mobile sales through affordable 5G devices. The Galaxy A71 5G is also part of that strategy, though it’s still unclear whether that particular model will be releasing in Europe as well. Samsung is at the very least considering a wider launch, as SamMobile exclusively confirmed earlier this year.

American consumers will be able to get their hands on the said mid-ranger for $499.99. Its introductory price in Europe should hbe in the €450-€500 range, as well. Compared to its LTE-only predecessor, the latest Galaxy A51 iteration leverages a newer chipset (Exynos 980) and 6GB of RAM, which is a 50% improvement. What remains to be seen is whether these premature listings are hinting at a broader European release or not.
