Just a couple of months after Samsung announced the Galaxy A50s, the company has launched the Galaxy A51 in Vietnam. We’ve already seen plenty of leaked renders of the device showcasing the punch-hole display and 48MP quad rear camera setup. And now we have more information about the device’s internal specifications. The all-new Galaxy A51 is powered by an octa-core processor coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.


The Galaxy A51 features a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a repositioned hole-punch cutout. Unlike the off-center hole-punch on Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S10 series, the one on the Galaxy A51 has been moved to the center. Embedded in the display is a fingerprint sensor, much like the one found on the Galaxy A50s and the phone even includes support for face unlocking. In terms of optics, the device features a 40MP f/2.0 primary shooter, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP f/2.4 macro lens, and a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor. On the front, the device has a single 32MP f/2.2 selfie camera.

The device is backed by a respectable 4,000mAh battery and it includes support for 15-watt fast charging which will get you up to 3 hours of calling, 3 hours of video consumption and 10 hours of music playback with only a 10 minute charge.

The device has been priced at 7,990,000 VND (~$346) and will be available in three color variants — Blue Crush Multicolor, White Crush Sparkling, Black Crush Diamond (translated).
