So when Samsung announced their earnings a few days ago they said their smartphone sales
are up in Quarter 3 of 2019 and they credited the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy A series of
devices for the increase in numbers.

Samsung has gone through some transformation as of late with its Galaxy A range of devices
bringing some value to this lineup.
Galaxy A50 has launched 5 months ago and it's already one of the best selling smartphones
of 2019.

So a lot of people are excited to see what its successor would bring to the table and
thankfully today we have the first look of its sequel, named as the Galaxy A51.
Also, we have some key specifications of the handset.

As you can see it has a punch-hole display and very minimal bezels.
It looks like the Galaxy Note 10 from the front albeit the camera hole is even smaller
than the Note 10.
I guess the Galaxy S11 is going to have a similar-sized hole.
On the back, it has a very uniquely arranged L shaped camera setup.
Kinda reminds us of the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro's camera setup.
It consists of a 32MP primary lens, a 12MP wide-angle, a 12MP telephoto sensor with 2x
optical zoom, and a 5MP depth camera for better portrait photos.
It also comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner just like its predecessor and surprisingly
there's a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Kinda strange world we live in where flagship phones don't come with headphone jacks while
budget and midrange phones do.
Other specs include a 4000mAh battery, 32MP front camera, 4 and 6GB of RAM, 64 and 128GB
of storage and Exynos 9611 processor which is built on 10nm process.
That said, specs-wise I don't think the Galaxy A51 offers much over the Galaxy A50, the majority
of the specs are similar.
But I think Samsung is banking on the design this time.
It looks like their flagship phones from the front which when you consider that it's a
mid-range phone is amazing.
The bezels are extremely thin and it does look premium at least from the front.

Like I've said, the Galaxy A50 was Samsung's best-selling mid-range phone in 2019, an extra
camera at the back, a premium looking front would surely help Samsung make the A51 sell
even more than the Galaxy A50.
But the thing is in order to do that they need to price it sensibly.
Since there aren't major changes it only makes sense for Samsung to keep the price the same
as the Galaxy A50 if they want to replicate the success the A50 was able to achieve.
