The Galaxy M51 is currently thought to become the first Samsung phone that breaks the 6000mAh barrier on its launch. It may have appeared on Geekbench 5 ahead of this event, in which case its SoC and RAM may have been spilled. According to this new leak, it gets a 4G/LTE-only mid-range Snapdragon chipset.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

The Galaxy M51 is a possible upcoming phone that is thought to fit into its Samsung mid-range series somewhere ahead of the M31s in 2020. Its latest leaks project that it will have a display measuring at least 6.5 inches diagonally, a 64MP main camera and at least 6GB of RAM. A new device now listed on Geekbench may confirm some of these details.

The new results are for a "samsung SM-M515F", a model number that has a good chance of conforming to the M51 product name, and has been seen on the website for a national division of the OEM besides. This device apparently runs on Android 10, has 8GB of RAM and has the "sm6150" for a processor. This number has translated to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 675 in previous leaks.

Therefore, it seems the M51 is coming with this mid-tier processor, which is also present in 2019's Galaxy M40 and A70. This may strike some fans as a little disappointing, but may also help keep the newer phone's starting price down. However, this latest Geekbench leak can of course do nothing to lend any more weight to what may be the M51's most important rumored spec: its 7000mAh battery.

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.
