A fresh batch of midrange 5G phones just came out of Samsung’s oven. One of them is the new Samsung Galaxy A51 5G.
Launched alongside the Galaxy A71 5G, the new Samsung Galaxy A51 5G also retains some of the features that the vanilla Galaxy A51 model has.
It still has a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen, with a punch-hole on the middle for the 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Unlike the Galaxy A71 5G, the Galaxy A51 5G has a 48-megapixel primary camera, a downgrade from the 64-megapixel sensor of the former. Although, it has the same 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera and two 5-megapixel sensors for macro shots and depth-sensing, respectively.
Both devices also have 4,500mAh battery, but the 25W fast charging was compromised to 15W. On the upside, the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G might be using the same processor as the former.
We say “might” because Samsung doesn’t always reveal the actual chipset they use on its phones. But as per their press release, the two share the same processors with dual 2.2GHz and hexa 1.8GHz cores, which we assume to be the new Exynos 980. That’s a chipset with integrated 5G for midrange smartphones.
The pricing and availability for the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G are yet to be announced. We’ll be updating this article once more information becomes available.
But for us here in the Philippines, we may not see this device at all, since not a lot of 5G makes it locally. So if you’re interested on this device, the closest thing you can get is the vanilla Galaxy A51.
