Last year, Samsung focussed on releasing 5G variants of just the high-end phones, but it plans to bring 5G connectivity to a lot more 5G phones this year. Images and specifications of the Galaxy A71 5G were revealed earlier this week, and now it’s time for the Galaxy A51 5G.
A press render of the Galaxy A51’s 5G variant has surfaced the internet, revealing its design. The upcoming phone appears to have a slightly different rear design and frame material compared to the LTE variant of the smartphone. It looks more like the Galaxy A90 5G, with its dual-finish design rather than using the Galaxy 51’s diagonal pattern. The phone appears to use a metal frame rather than the LTE variant’s polycarbonate frame.
At the front, the phone has a Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, likely with Full HD+ resolution and an under-display optical fingerprint reader. We expect the Galaxy A51 5G to use the same quad-camera setup (48MP wide+12MP ultrawide+5MP macro+5MP depth) on the rear that is used in the LTE variant. The phone could feature 4K video recording using both front and rear cameras.
The upcoming 5G smartphone from Samsung will use an Exynos 980 processor that comes fully integrated with the Shannon 5G modem and is built using the company’s 8nm LPP process. We can confirm that the phone will be launched in South Korea.
The Galaxy A51 5G most likely features a 32MP selfie camera, Android 10 with One UI 2.0, 6GB/8GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB UFS storage, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, and a 4000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging.
