[Update: New renders, unveil date] Samsung Galaxy A51 renders show off 48MP quad rear cameras and punch-hole display
It’s just been over a month since Samsung launched the Galaxy A50s in India. The premium mid-ranger from the company packed in an Exynos 9611 chip, coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also featured a triple camera setup on the back, with a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. While it hasn’t been all that long since its release, Samsung seems to be prepping up for the release of its successor, the Galaxy A51. Leaked renders of the device have now surfaced online, revealing some key design changes and features.
Infamous leakster @OnLeaks recently shared a couple of high-quality renders and a 360-degree video of the upcoming Galaxy A51. The renders suggest that the Galaxy A51 will feature a 6.5-inch punch-hole display, like the one found on the company’s flagship devices, with minimal bezels on all sides.
On the back, the device will feature a new rectangular camera module which will include four cameras in an L-shaped array, along with an LED flash. Unlike the front of the device, the back panel will feature curved edges with the Samsung branding in the center. The renders don’t include a fingerprint scanner on the back which leads us to believe that the A51 will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, just like its predecessor.
Both the power button and volume rocker can be found on the right edge of the device, while the SIM card tray is on the left. On the bottom edge, the Galaxy A51 will feature a USB Type-C port for charging and data syncing, along with a single loudspeaker grill and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Previous leaks suggest that the Galaxy A51 will feature a substantial 4,000mAh battery and will run One UI 2.0 out of the box. Furthermore, the quad-camera setup will likely include a 48MP primary sensor, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a 5MP depth sensor. Up on the front, the device will feature a single 32MP selfie shooter.
A Geekbench listing of the device suggests that it will be powered by the Exynos 9611 chip, along with at least 4GB of RAM. However, we aren’t sure if the Geekbench listing is a reliable source. As of now, there’s no further information from the company regarding the device or its release timeline. But we expect to learn more as its launch draws closer.
Update: New renders, unveil date
Images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A51 have started popping up recently. As our own Max Weinbach discovered earlier this week, the company may have leaked it themselves in an email. Today, we’ve got some more leaked renders and a date for the unveiling of the device. The new leaked renders line up with what we’ve previously seen of the A51. It has a centered punch hole on the front and four cameras on the rear in an L-shape. We can now also see some of the color options that will be available: “Prism Crush White,” Black, Pink, and Blue.
SamMobile is reporting that there will be a 6GB of RAM model in addition to 4GB. Storage options will be 64/128GB. The 4th camera is now said to be a 5MP macro lens, not telephoto. In terms of the unveiling date, Samsung Vietnam previously revealed a Galaxy A event is scheduled for December 12th. SamMobile is now saying they can confirm the Galaxy A51 will be at that event, but they are told other Galaxy A devices will not be present.
