Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy A51 smartphone. The direct successor to this year’s Galaxy A50, the mid-range smartphone is part of the Korean giant’s 2020 lineup and features a new but simplistic design.
Off the bat, the Galaxy A51 houses an Exynos 9611 SoC, between 4GB and 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage, and a sizable 4,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast-charging. At the front, the phone sports a 6.5-inch Infinity-O display, complete with a built-in fingerprint scanner. Just like the Galaxy A50, the Galaxy A51 has the same “3D Glasstic” body that refracts prismatic patterns when the light hits it at just the right angle.
As for its cameras, the Galaxy A51’s main array uses a quad-camera setup. Comprising a 48MP – again, like its predecessor – a 12MP ultra-wide, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro camera, which is a first for a Galaxy smartphone. Nestled within the punch hole at the front of the phone is a 32MP camera sensor. Oh, and the phone is also expected to ship out with One UI 2 and the latest Android 10 OS.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 is set to go on sale in Vietnam on 27 December at an SRP of 7.99 Vietnamese Dong (~RM1455). At the time of writing, Samsung Malaysia did not announce a local launch date or pricing for the phone.
