Samsung’s cheapest 5G smartphone has arrived at the office and we’re gearing up to review the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G. We have the Exynos 980 variant, though there is a new Snapdragon 765G variant headed to the United States in the next month or so.
The Galaxy A51 5G is build around a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen, and powered by a 4,500 mAh battery. It supports 15W charging speeds and features a quad-camera setup. The latter consists of a 48MP main camera, a 12MP ultrawide snapper, 5MP macro, and a 5MP depth sensor. The display has a punch hole cut out, which contains a 32MP selfie camera.
The A51 5G comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage. For reference, the non 5G version of the A51 just has 4GB of RAM. Other features include an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The phone’s physical design is nice. Despite its rounded corners, it looks a bit squarish and the lower bezel is a little larger than the others. The rear glass of the phone is curved on all edges for a comfortable curve that conforms to the hand. Then, there’s the two-tone effect on the back’s iridescent pattern, which gives the design another dimension.
