Galaxy A51 5G receives Wi-Fi certification, gets one step closer to the launch


Last updated: April 6th, 2020 at 07:14 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A51 5G is now one step closer to the launch. The upcoming smartphone recently received the necessary certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. The phone is expected to be launched in South Korea and a few other countries where 5G networks are available.

As per the information available in supporting documents on Wi-Fi Alliance’s website, the Galaxy A51 5G (SM-A516N) features dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity. The phone also seems to run the Android 10 operating system, which means that it will come with One UI 2.0 (or later).

Galaxy A51 5G specifications

Although the Galaxy A51 5G looks quite similar to the LTE variant of the Galaxy A51, there are a few changes to the build and design. The 5G variant of the phone uses a metal frame and has a different pattern on the rear panel. It has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution. The phone will feature 4GB/6GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, and a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy A51 5G uses the 8nm Exynos 980 chipset, which debuted with the Vivo X30 and was recently used in the Vivo S6 5G. The processing chipset features two Cortex-A77 CPU cores (2.2GHz), six Cortex-A55 CPU cores (1.8GHz), Mali-G76 MP5 GPU, and a fully-integrated Shannon 5G modem. The chipset features sub-6GHz 5G support with SA and NSA compatibility.

The quad-camera setup (48MP primary + 12MP ultrawide + 5MP macro + 5MP depth) used in the Galaxy A51 is expected to be a part of the Galaxy A51 5G as well. At the front, the phone could come with a 32MP selfie camera and an under-display optical fingerprint reader.

Expected connectivity features include GPS, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, and a headphone jack. The Galaxy A51 5G will come equipped with a 4000mAh battery with 15W fast charging.
