Nearly half a year after we exclusively confirmed that the Galaxy M51 is in development, Samsung has finally and officially acknowledged the mid-range device without much fanfare. The Galaxy M51 is now available for pre-order in Germany in two color options, black and white, for the price of 360 euro. The phone’s estimated shipping date is September 11.

Spec-wise the Galaxy M51 meets our expectations and the mid-range phone does indeed pack a monstrous 7,000mAh battery. It’s the largest battery Samsung had ever fitted on a smartphone and it should be capable of fully charging in around 2 hours thanks to 25W fast charging.

Samsung isn’t as generous on the software side

The Galaxy M51 has plenty of hardware components worth pointing out aside from the large 7,000mAh battery, such as its quad camera setup and its 32MP selfie shooter. The phone packs 128GB of expandable storage, 6GB of RAM, a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O display, and an octa-core processor that remains unmentioned in Samsung’s promotional material but should be none other than the Snapdragon 730 / 730G SoC.

What is mentioned in Samsung’s promos is the software, and it’s a little bit surprising as well as disappointing. Despite earlier expectations, the Galaxy M51 doesn’t ship with One UI 2.5 or even One UI 2.1/2.0. Instead the phone runs One UI Core, i.e., a stripped-down version of One UI designed primarily for lower-end phones. It does come with Night camera mode and it might also include Hyperlapse and Pro Mode, but for all intents and purposes, the phone won’t deliver the full-fledged One UI experience.

The Galaxy M51 is now available for pre-order in Germany for 360 euro but it’s also expected to hit the shelves in India and other countries. We’ll keep you posted once we find out more.
