Samsung is seemingly working on ‘s’ level upgrade of the Galaxy A51, which was launched earlier this year. The Samsung Galaxy A51s, which was previously spotted on NFC Forum and Wi-Fi alliance, has allegedly surfaced on Geekbench bearing the model number SM-A516V ahead of the launch. The listing has revealed key specifications and Geekbench scores of the handset. The upcoming mid-range Samsung Galaxy A51s will reportedly ship with octa-core 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm chipset codenamed as ‘lito’, which is rumoured to be the successor to Snapdragon 765-series SoC. The handset is expected to come with 5G connectivity and at least 6GB of RAM.
Furthermore, the Galaxy A51s will boot Android 10 out of the box. The phone’s Geekbench scores include 622 points in the single-core test and 1,928 points in the multi-core test. The Wi-Fi Alliance and NFC certification, on the other hand, has confirmed that the A51s will feature dual-band Wi-Fi ac and NFC connectivity. That’s all the information the certifications have revealed so far!
The Samsung Galaxy A51s will most likely be an iterative upgrade to the regular A51 smartphone, which rocks a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display and 2.3GHz octa-core Exynos 9611 processor. There is a 5G version of the handset as well, which is powered Exynos 980 chipset. The SoCs are paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, which is further expandable up to 512GB via a microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy A51 runs on Android 10 with One UI 2.0 on top.
In the camera department, the handset comes with a quad-camera setup that includes a 48MP main camera, a 5MP macro lens, a 12MP wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. The phone also gets a 32MP selfie camera housed in the punch-hole cutout. The device houses a 4,000mAh battery and supports 15W fast charging. The handset measures 158.5mm×73.6mm×7.9mm and weighs 172 grams.
