The Samsung Galaxy A51 was launched in December of last year, but it seems to be relaunched soon with the new affordable 5G version, which promises to be the most affordable 5G phone of this brand.
Found by SamMobile, the Wi-Fi Alliance has certified a smartphone with the same identification code as the one we had heard a 5G version of the Galaxy A51 – certification normally only happens a short while before a new phone is unveiled. Therefore, this means that we might be able to see the Galaxy A51 5G very soon.
The Samsung Galaxy A51, which is a successor to the popular Galaxy A50 of last year, features four rear cameras, a big 6.5-inch FHD+ screen, and a large 4,000mAh battery as well.
We have heard so far that it doesn’t seem the 5G version has any difference on those fronts, despite the fact that its frame is metal, not plastic and it features a different pattern on the back – and of course, it has 5G connectivity.
The Galaxy A series of Samsung is home to some of the most affordable smartphones of this brand, so a 5G smartphone in this series would likely be much more affordable than in the Galaxy S20 line. And given the numbering, the Galaxy A51 5G should even be more affordable than the Galaxy A90 5G in 2019.
However, it’s unlikely that Samsung is going to claim the trophy for the cheapest ever 5G phone because the recently-announced Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite likely takes the name there.
While the coronavirus sweeps the world, phone launches have been rather up in the air with launches postponed, canceled, or held online. Therefore, we will have to see what happens with the Galaxy A51 5G of Samsung.
Since Samsung doesn’t tend to give a lot of pomp to its A-series launches, the first official sighting that we can get of this phone might be its surprise listing on the website of the company.
