The Exynos 9611 on the A51 and the Snapdragon 730 on the A71 are clearly meant for mid-range smartphones, but the imaging features on these models are already more advanced than anything Samsung has put on previous flagships. In this respect, the A51 features a 48 MP main shooter, while the A71 comes with a 64 MP sensor, and both get a 32 MP selfie cam.

Samsung’s Galaxy mid-range lineup is now joined by the A51 and A71 models and it looks like the early design leaks were spot on, as the new handhelds indeed feature a punch-hole display similar to the one on the Galaxy Note 10, plus an L-shaped rear quad-cam array with a black bump copied from the latest iPhone models.

Even though these are mid-range models, the imagining specs already put to shame any previous Galaxy S and Note flagships. The A71 comes equipped with 64 MP image sensor, while the A51 integrates a 48 MP main, and the other three sensors are the same for both models, including a 12 MP with ultra-wide lens, a 5 MP with depth-sensing feature and a 5 MP with macro lens.

The A51 is powered by an Exynos 9611 SoC coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It also comes with a 6.5-inch 2,400 x  1,080 AMOLED screen that integrates a punch-hole 32 MP selfie cam centered at the top. Other features include a microSD card reader and a 4,000 mAh battery with 15 W fast charging.

Almost identical in design, the A71 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC coupled with either 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, plus it features a slightly larger 6.7-inch AMOLED screen. The battery is also slightly larger at 4.500 mAH and it gets a faster 25 W charging option.

Initial availability for these two models will be limited to Vietnam and Poland, and Samsung only unveiled pricing for the A51, which will begin shipping on December 27 for US$350.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
