The Samsung Galaxy A51 had made its debut back in December. Soon after its launch, a report from SamMobile revealed that the brand is working on a 5G variant of the Galaxy A51 and that its model number will be SM-A516N. The device then made a visit to Geekbench. And a couple of days ago, the Galaxy A51 5G made its appearance on TENAA as well, confirming the existence of the device. Now, an official support page of the Galaxy A51 5G has gone live in Korea. Let us check out its details.
Samsung Galaxy A51 5G Support Page Goes Live in Korea; Launch Imminent
The support page that we are talking about doesn’t mention the Galaxy A51 5G moniker anywhere. Instead, the page has SM-A516N model number, which, we know through SamMobile’s report and the listing of the device on Geekbench and TENAA is the Galaxy A51 5G. Moreover, the link to the support page has ‘SM-A516NZKMKOC’ in it, which we think could be the region-specific model number or the firmware version of the Galaxy A51. Unfortunately, that is all the information we could gather from the support page. Hopefully, more details of the device will emerge soon.
Since the Galaxy A51 5G will have a 5G network support, it needs to pack a 5G-supporting chipset. The brand will most likely use its own chipset instead of going with from Qualcomm or MediaTek. And currently, the only 5G chipset Samsung has is the Exynos 980, at least for the mid-range devices. And it is highly likely that the Galaxy A51 5G will come with the Exynos 980 chipset. The listing of the Galaxy A51 5G on Geekbench and TENAA also suggest that the device could come with the Exynos 980 chipset. Since the support page of the device has gone live, expect the smartphone to launch soon.
