Samsung has released the Galaxy A51 already. Now, a device that seems like a 5G version of the same has surfaced on the Geekbench 5 benchmarking website. It runs the Exynos 980 SoC instead of the 9611, and has 6GB of RAM.
Deirdre O Donnell,

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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
