Galaxy A51 to have ‘L-shaped’ quad camera setup, reveal leaked images
The Galaxy A51 may come with a quad rear camera setup, according to a leak that purports to show the internals of the device. Published by 91Mobiles, one of the images shows an L-shaped cutout in the top left corner of the device, and the publication believes this cutout will hold four camera sensors. If that is true, the A51 would be the first Galaxy smartphone with its camera sensors placed in such a manner, and the second one to have four rear-facing cameras. The first was the Galaxy A9 (2018) that was launched last year.
And it does seem like the L-shaped cutout could be entirely for the camera, as there’s a separate hole for the LED flash next to the cutout. A dubious leak many months ago had said the Galaxy A51 and A61 would have four rear cameras, and the leaked images suggest that may actually be the case. The same leak had also said the A51 would have a 32MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto camera for 2x optical zoom, and a 5MP depth-sensing camera. However, whether those megapixel counts are accurate is unclear at this time.
Still, no matter what the camera resolutions may be, a quad camera setup would get the Galaxy A51 plenty of attention. The Galaxy A50 is arguably Samsung’s most popular mid-range phone in 2019, and an extra rear camera could be a good way to make the Galaxy A51 stand out, especially since it’s expected to carry specs similar to the A50/A50s in other departments, such as the underlying chipset and the RAM and storage configurations. Android 10 out of the box would be another highlight, although that is likely to be common to all A series phones Samsung will launch in 2020.
