Samsung Galaxy M51 with massive 7,000 mAh battery quietly launched in Europe
Samsung has quietly launched the long-rumored Galaxy M51 in Germany. As a brand new entry in Samsung’s popular Galaxy M series, the Galaxy M51 exists as a higher-placed alternative to the Galaxy M31s, which was launched earlier in July. The Galaxy M51 brings along several notable improvements, including a behemoth battery, a (possible) switch over to a Snapdragon processor, and a slightly bigger display.
Samsung Galaxy M51: Specifications
|Specification||Samsung Galaxy M51|
|Dimensions & Weight||<information not available>|
|RAM & Storage||6GB RAM + 128GB storage|
|Battery & Charging|
|Fingerprint sensor||Side-mounted fingerprint sensor|
|Android Version||Android 10 with One UI 2.1|
The Samsung Galaxy M51 sports a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a centered hole-punch and full HD+ resolution. Although Samsung’s official listing doesn’t make it clear which processor the phone is using, it’s likely powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, as previously rumored.
The phone offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage with support for SD card expansion. In terms of optics, the Galaxy M51 continues to use the same setup as the Galaxy M31s, packing a 64MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro lens. Even the 32MP selfie camera appears to be unchanged.
The insane 7,000 mAh battery is what gives the Galaxy M51 its headline. The 6000 mAh battery fitted on previous Galaxy M series phones was the largest in its segment. And the fact that Samsung managed to beef up the capacity even further is nothing short of brilliant. Samsung also includes a 25W fast charger inside the box, the same one that comes with the Galaxy M31s and some of Samsung’s flagships.
On the software front, the Galaxy M51 comes running One UI 2.1 based on Android 10. Other specs of the phone include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a USB Type C port, a single bottom-firing speaker, a 3.5mm audio jack, and Bluetooth 5.
Available in Black and White colors, the Galaxy M51 is priced at €360 ($429) and can be pre-ordered through Samsung’s German website. The preorders will start shipping out starting September 11. Samsung hasn’t yet detailed when it will bring the device to other markets such as India, but we hope to see it launch in the country.
