“The Galaxy A51 is slated to be an upcoming mid-range 5G smartphone from Samsung, and might be launched in the coming weeks.”
Update: This story has incorrectly mentioned the Samsung Galaxy A51. The TENAA listing is actually of the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G. The smartphone will launch as a 5G variant of the Galaxy A71.
Samsung is seemingly working on a new mid-range 5G smartphone, with the brand’s Galaxy A51 now purported to come with 5G connectivity. Now, the same handset has been spotted in the TENAA certification database, which in turn also suggests that it may launch quite soon — possibly in the coming weeks. The TENAA certification has revealed a number of key specifications, including the processor, camera details and battery capacity, giving us a fair clue of how Samsung might position the device in its overall smartphone portfolio.
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G is seen sporting the company’s in-house Exynos 980 5G chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM. It is also rated to feature a 4,370mAh battery, with 25W fast charging support. While the size of native internal storage has not been confirmed by the listing, it does reveal that the Galaxy A51 5G will come with support for external storage. In terms of the size and dimensions of the device, the Galaxy A51 5G will weigh 185 grams, and measure 8.1mm in thickness.
The camera details of the Galaxy A51 5G are also revealed in the listing, stating that for the rear camera, the Galaxy A51 will feature a 64-megapixel primary rear camera. The setup will be a quad-camera unit, with the other units being a 12-megapixel unit and two 5-megapixel units. While the listing does not really reveal exactly what would the three modules would serve, it is likely that they comprise ultra-wide angle, macro and depth sensor units, respectively. Upfront, the Galaxy A51 5G is expected to come with a 32-megapixel camera for selfies.
Unfortunately, the Galaxy A51 5G’s display size and type have not been revealed in the TENAA listing. It is stated to feature a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi, which is pretty much what you would expect from a smartphone of this stature. It is also stated to retain the 3.5mm audio port, and given that it comes with 5G connectivity, is likely to be priced at the higher end of the Galaxy A series devices. Since the device has seen extensive specifications being revealed already, it is likely that the official launch would happen soon.
