Samsung has launched the 8GB RAM + 128GB internal storage variant of its global best-selling smartphone, the Galaxy A51. Priced at Rs 27,999, the new variant comes in prism crush black, prism crush white, and prism crush blue colors. It will be available across retail channels — offline retail stores, e-commerce portals, and Samsung.com.
“The Galaxy A51’s cool and intelligent ‘Make for India’ innovations have seen widespread adoption. The Useful Cards feature helps reduce clutter in the SMS Inbox. Multilingual Typing helps millennials and Gen Z converse effortlessly in local languages. Finder lets users find app content quickly, while Smart Crop helps users save, share, or edit the most relevant part of the screenshot,” the company said in a statement.
The Galaxy A51 is an updated version of the Galaxy A50s, with a new format of display, improved optics, and enhanced user interface (OneUI 2.0). It has minor but noticeable design changes when compared with the Galaxy A50 and A50s. Like its predecessors, the phone is made of polycarbonate with a glass-like gradient design on the back. It sports a 6.5-inch super AMOLED display of a fullHD+ resolution, stretched in a tall 20:9 aspect ratio.
To recall, the Samsung Galaxy A51 was launched in India in the single, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration in late January — more than a month after its debut in Vietnam in December. A report by Strategy Analytics called it the “world’s best-selling smartphone” for the first quarter of this year as the company reportedly shipped more than 60 lakh units of the smartphone globally throughout the quarter.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Samsung Galaxy A51 runs Android 10 with One UI 2.0 on top (upgradable to One UI 2.1) and features a 6.5-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) Infinity-O Display with a Super AMOLED panel and 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by an octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM.
There is the quad rear camera setup that houses a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/2.0 lens, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.0 aperture, a 5-megapixel macro camera with an f/2.4 aperture, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.2 lens. For selfies, the phone comes with a 32-megapixel selfie camera sensor at the front that has an f/2.2 lens.
In terms of storage, the Samsung Galaxy A51 has 128GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB). Connectivity options on the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port. Lastly, the phone packs a 4,500mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging.
