A 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy A51 may be on the way
The Samsung Galaxy A51 may be the start of a markedly easy second album for its smartphone series. Now, a new leak suggests that the OEM is planning to add a 5G version of this phone to its line-up. It comes in the form of a new set of Geekbench 5 results for a phone with an appropriate model number.
This number is "samsung SM-A516N", whereas that of the pre-existing A51 is SM-A515F. Should its new scores prove genuine, it is powered by the Exynos 980 SoC, a dual-mode 5G chipset also found in the mid-range Vivo X30 series.
The "SM-A516N" also has 6GB of RAM, whereas the A51 starts with 4. Going by its apparent benchmarking results, it outperforms its extant variant by a good margin. It would be interesting to see how much Samsung might charge for this possible upcoming 5G phone: its 4G counterpart goes for about US$300 at present.
