As reported earlier, the successor to the widely well-received mid-ranger, Samsung A50, is already in the works and might be unveiled in the first quarter of 2020. A50 was introduced back in August this year, later refreshed with an ‘S’ moniker plus a few minor hardware upgrades & now we have fresh renders of A51 signaling another upcoming revamped device. 

Bearing the model number, SM-A515F, Samsung Galaxy A51 has recently been spotted on the WiFi Alliance Database. The listing confirmed that this upcoming mid-ranged Galaxy iteration will run Android 10 right out of the box. And while we didn’t have renders, early leaks have revealed that the A51 will feature a unique L-shaped camera design. These rumors have now been confirmed thanks to a set of renders leaked by PriceBaba. 

You’re looking at a bezel-free design with a punch-hole housing in the center (likely borrowed from the Samsung Note 10), that is surrounded by a 6.5-inch display. The display of the Galaxy A51 likely doubles as a fingerprint reader, since there’s none to be seen on the rear. Speaking of which, the back sports a protrusion that houses the L-style quad-lens arrangement, and, of course, the LED flash.

The display of Galaxy A50s Successor itself seems to be sandwiched between two glass panels, which would have been fairly slim, if not for the camera bump. Although we don’t have renders for them, the back panel is speculated to arrive in silver, black, and blue variants.

On the flip side, the rumor mill suggests that the Samsung A51's 6.5-inch screen is a Super AMOLED display that produces an FHD+ resolution at a yet-to-be-confirmed screen refresh-rate. The punch-hole cutout encloses a 32-megapixel selfie shooter while the bump on the back houses a 48-megapixel primary lens. This sensor is rounded off by an impressive 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel ultrawide angle lens, and finally a 5-megapixel depth sensor. 

As impressive as this optics package is, the phone might fall short when it comes to performance. Under the hood, you’re looking at a modest Exynos 9611 chipset paired with 4 GB of RAM and either 64 GB or 128 GB of onboard storage. This hardware is tipped to be powered by a 4,000 mAh battery and a One UI 2.0-layered Android 10. No final wording on the release date or pricing yet but the handset is rumored to cost well under a Samsung price tag of 50,000 PKR.
