Samsung announces successor to Galaxy A50 smartphone

Samsung has announced the successor of its Galaxy A50 smartphone. The Galaxy A51 has an OLED screen with a hole in the top center for the front camera. There are four cameras at the back, the manufacturer says.

The Galaxy A51 has an OLED screen of 15.1×6.8 cm, with a diagonal of 6.5 “and a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels. The Galaxy A50 has a screen of 14.8×6.8 cm and the screen of the Galaxy A51 is something longer and equally wide, with a small hole at the top for the 32-megapixel front camera.

Samsung has placed four cameras at the back. The primary camera is a 1/2 “sensor with a resolution of 48 megapixels, assisted by a 12-megapixel camera with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a macro camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels. There is also a depth sensor that helps blur the background for portrait photos.

The device runs on a Samsung Exynos 9611-soc, with four Cortex A73 cores at 2.3 GHz and four Cortex A53 cores at 1.7 GHz, assisted by an ARM Mali G72MP3 GPU. Samsung produces the soc at 10nm. The A51 has, depending on the version, working memory of 4, 6 or 8 GB and storage of 64 or 128 GB. The battery has a capacity of 4000mAh and users can charge it with a maximum of 15W.

Samsung also presented the A71, the brand’s first smartphone with its own GW1 sensor with a maximum resolution of 64 megapixels. The other cameras are the same as the A51. The screen and the housing are slightly larger, while the battery with 4500mAh has slightly more capacity. Nothing is yet known about a release in the Benelux for the Galaxy A51 and A71:
