The Samsung Galaxy A51 was among the first smartphones to have been launched by Samsung here in India (and several markets across the globe) this year. And it looks like the phone will soon get a 5G variant for select markets. The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, as the new device is called, was recently leaked by famous leakster @evleaks, who is usually correct with his predictions. As you might have probably guessed, the Samsung Galaxy A51 is mostly similar to the standard A51 in almost all aspects save for some minor design tweaks and change in the internals.
Let us check out what those are.
To start things off, the one significant change with this 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy A51 is that instead of the Exynos 9611 processor that the standard variant gets, this one comes powered by Samsung’s new mid-range chipset the Exynos 980. Even with the change in the antenna sizes and layout for the 5G variant, the phone seems to be similar in size to the original Galaxy A51. There will almost be some variation in the overall weight, though. The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G also seems to be a different design pattern on the back panel to differentiate it fro the 4G variant.
The existence of the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G comes at around the same time a new 5G capable device with the model number SM-A516N appeared on the South Korean support page for Samsung Mobile. There is also a GeekBench results page that had references to the same model number, per GSMArena.
While yet to be confirmed, the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G will almost certainly feature the same L-shaped quad-camera setup at the rear consisting of the primary 48MP camera, the 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, the 5MP macro camera, and the 5MP depth-sensing camera. At the front, the phone uses a single 32MP camera housed within a small punch hole on the display. The display itself happens to be an FHD+ AMOLED panel that measures 6.5-inches across.
Itis unlikely that the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G would ever make it to India officially. The phone should be out in its home market — South Korea in the near future.
