“Samsung Galaxy A51 5G will use the company’s mid-range Exynos 980 5G processor”
Samsung is working on a 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy A51 was originally launched back in December. There have been a few reports about the Galaxy A51 5G with model number SM-A516N in recent times, as the phone has been spotted on Geekbench and TENAA. Now, it looks like we might be inching closer to the launch as the Galaxy A51 5G official support page has gone live in South Korea. Though the listing doesn’t confirm the moniker or hardware specifications, it has the same SM-A516N model number. Considering the Exynos 980 SoC is the only mid-range 5G chip from Samsung, it is likely to power the Galaxy A51 5G. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the upcoming A-series phone, but it shouldn’t be long before more information surfaces.
Samsung Galaxy A51 specifications
The Samsung Galaxy A51 4G LTE model ships with a 6.5-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with an Infinity-O panel and 2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution. The phone is powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core Exynos 9611 processor coupled with Mali-G72 GPU, 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage that is further expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card. It runs on Android 10 OS with OneUI 2.0 custom skin on top. The Samsung Galaxy A51 measures 158.5 x 73.6 x 7.9mm and weighs 172 grams.
As for the optics, the Samsung Galaxy A51 features a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP macro lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 5MP depth sensor. There is a 32MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats, an in-display fingerprint sensor for security and support for Dolby Atmos. The smartphone houses a 4,000mAh battery and supports 15W fast charging. Connectivity features include Dual 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, and USB Type-C.
We believe the Galaxy A51 5G will look identical to the Galaxy A51 LTE model and will largely feature the same specifications. The biggest difference will be the processor as the Galaxy A51 5G will likely use the Exynos 980 SoC that comes with an integrated 5G modem. Samsung is expected to launch a 5G variant of the Galaxy A71 as well, which is also expected to use the Exynos 980 SoC.
