And Samsung Galaxy M51 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy M51 we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Samsung in August 2020. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Samsung Galaxy M51 works on Android 10 and updated to Android 11. And this is very good, we advise you to pay attention to this smartphone and to study its characteristics in more detail.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Samsung Galaxy M51 is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

6.9-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy M51 and has an original solution for placing a selfie camera in the form of a small round hole in the screen. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 9.5 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 7 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and very capacious battery.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Samsung Galaxy M51. The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro + 5 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 32 MP Wide. This is a very good selfie-camera, which will shoot high-quality photos, so you share them with your friends in social networks and not only. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Samsung Galaxy M51 received 8-core processor Snapdragon 730G. The amount of RAM in it is 6 GB or 8 GB, depending on which option you choose.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Samsung Galaxy M51: buy or not to buy?

In September 2020 begin sales of a new smartphone Samsung Galaxy M51. The manufacturer said the price of $330 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a huge touch screen, a very cool main camera, a very high quality front camera, a super capacious battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.

As a result, in 2020 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
