The Samsung Galaxy A50 was one of the firm’s best mid-range phones of 2019, and it’s now announced a follow-up in the Galaxy A51.
The Galaxy A51 was announced in Vietnam earlier today and its design seems in line with recent leaks. That means a center-mounted punch-hole cutout, and a rectangular camera housing with four rear cameras.
Samsung’s new mid-range phone sports an unnamed octa-core chipset (four cores at 2.3Ghz and four at 1.7Ghz), 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of expandable storage. You’re also getting a 4,000mAh battery with 15W charging and a fingerprint scanner under the 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED screen.
The Galaxy A51 is no slouch in terms of photography, delivering a 32MP selfie camera and the aforementioned quad rear camera setup. Expect to find a 48MP f/2.0 primary camera, 5MP macro camera, 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 5MP depth sensor on the back.
Samsung’s latest mid-range phone is slated to arrive in Vietnam on December 27 for 7,990,000 Vietnamese dong (~$346). There’s no word on wider availability, but Samsung Vietnam is dishing out a Bluetooth headset and 10,000mAh power bank to customers who pre-order the device.
Samsung Galaxy A71 breaks cover
It wasn’t the only phone revealed today, as SamMobile reports that Samsung quietly announced the Galaxy A71 today. The device has a similar design to the A51, featuring a center-mounted punch-hole and a rectangular quad camera housing.
Otherwise, the Galaxy A71 features a larger, 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen (with in-display fingerprint), an unnamed octa-core chipset (believed to be Snapdragon 730), 6/8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. You’re also apparently getting a 4,500mAh battery with 25W charging.
Samsung’s device seems like a very versatile camera platform too, delivering a 64MP primary sensor, 5MP macro camera, 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP depth shooter. Selfies are handled by a 32MP camera within the punch-hole cutout.
There’s no word on pricing and availability unfortunately, but the listing means wider availability has to be around the corner.
