Samsung Galaxy A51 5G official images leaked, reveal a different back panel design

On: March 27, 2020

Samsung had launched the Galaxy A51 last December, while it made its way to India in January this year. In the same month, a 5G variant of the smartphone was spotted on Geekbench revealing key specifications. Now, the Galaxy A51 5G has been revealed by popular tipster Evan Blass, giving us a glimpse at the upcoming device. The Galaxy A51 5G’s support page has also gone live on Samsung’s official site in South Korea. It carries the model number SM-A516N which is the same as Geekbench listing. 

The Galaxy A51 5G will feature an Exynos 980 5G chipset

The Galaxy A51 5G version is mostly identical to the vanilla variant. However, the former has a different back panel compared to the standard A51, which features a reflective finish and a prism-like design. On the 5G version, the back panel features a dual-tone design and you can notice a running vertical strip with Prism effect only at the right corner of the device. The upcoming smartphone will reportedly come with the Exynos 980 chipset with support for 5G connectivity. The Geekbench listing had revealed 6GB RAM and Android 10. 

Apart from this, the Galaxy A51 5G is expected to retain the rest of the specs from the vanilla A51. As seen in the leaked image, the 5G version also features a centre-aligned punch-hole camera cutout. It has an L-shaped quad-camera module on the back. The volume rocker and power buttons are located on the right side and there is no conventional fingerprint scanner. Samsung is also expected to launch a 5G version of Galaxy A71. If the upcoming A51 5G arrives with the same design as its LTE variant, the same may be true for A71 5G.
