The Galaxy M51 has been eluding the market for quite some time, as the first worthwhile rumors about the device emerged in early 2020. There’s still a lot to be known about the mysterious Galaxy M51, but even so, we can be sure that it will try to strike a balance between price and performance.
Just like the Galaxy A51, the Galaxy M51 should be a good value proposition, but time will tell exactly how these two devices will differ. For now, this is what is known and what has been rumored about the Galaxy M51 so far.
The Galaxy M51 was previously envisioned in a handful of 3D renders and a 360 degree video, and even if these resources are unofficial, they may have been created based on leaked information and/or educated guesses.
Using those renders as a basis for now, the Galaxy M51 could have a plastic build with a rectangular camera cutout at the back and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The physical buttons would reside on the right edge of the phone, and there could also be a USB-C port at the bottom as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.
SamMobile exclusively learned that Samsung is developing the Galaxy M51 with 128GB of built-in storage. There is a possibility that a 64GB model will also be released later down the line, but this remains unclear.
Other specs are currently unknown, but the Galaxy M51 could have a battery larger than the A51’s, in which case it should exceed 4,000mAh.
It’s likely that the Galaxy M51 will have a display diagonal of about 6.5-inch, similar to the Galaxy A51. The panel could be of the Infinity-O variety but with a corner cutout instead of one in the center.
According to early rumors and contrary to what preliminary renders suggest, the Galaxy M51 will sport a quad rear-facing camera setup.
The combo could include the 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor, but as yet there are no details on the other three units or the selfie camera.
Software and Features
It’s safe to assume that the Galaxy M51 will ship with Android 10 and a version of One UI 2. Exactly which version remains to be seen, but the overall software experience is likely to reflect that of the Galaxy A51 with slight deviations. Aside from generally having the same apps and features, the Galaxy M51 should also provide the same level of Galaxy device compatibility.
Price and Availability
Pricing and availability details are unknown right now, and one thing we can be almost certain of is that the Galaxy M51 should be released by the end of the year. The price will depend on what hardware ends up under the phone’s hood, but at least in theory, it should hover around the $300-$350 mark, below the Galaxy A51.
Downloads and Resources
The Galaxy M51 is not available yet, which means there are no resources for it for the time being. However, SamMobile offers tons of resources for existing Galaxy devices, ranging from Samsung APKs to wallpapers and firmware. These goodies are available to download for free, but readers who sign up to an optional premium plan benefit from faster downloads, ad-free browsing, giveaways, and more.
