A new certificate issued by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (or Bluetooth SIG) confirms in no uncertain terms that Samsung has a device called the Galaxy M51 in the works. Other recent leaks strongly suggest this phone will come with a battery rated for 7000mAh in capacity. It is also possible it will act as an M40 successor in 2020.

The Bluetooth SIG has approved a new phone for Samsung today (July 17, 2020). This device has the model number SM-M515F_DSN, which, as ardent fans of this OEM may realize, most likely translates to the product name Galaxy M51. This deduction is patently validated on reading further down its new official documentation.

Therefore, it seems Samsung has a new member of the Galaxy M series to introduce soon. Its variant number may have some consumers wondering what happens to the M41 - which does have more of a precedent - now. Well, according to a recent SamMobile report, it is no more, having been passed over for this newer name in 2020.

The same potential phone was once linked to a new kind of OLED screen, supplied not by Samsung but by TCL's subsidiary China Star Optoelectronics (or TCL CSOT) instead. Therefore, the M41 may have had a TUV Rheinland-certified blue-light filter for eye safety.

As for the Galaxy M51, it seems it will not have this spec - well, not from TCL CSOT, at least. SamMobile asserts that the panels in question "were unable to meet the quality requirements"; therefore, the brand-new phone will have a display from its own OEM as is more usual. However, there is evidence that it may bring something even more interesting.

Samsung has also reportedly developed a new smartphone battery, the EB-BM415ABY, with no less than 6800mAh in typical capacity. As its own model number is close enough to that of the M51, this implies scope for this phone to come promoted as a "7000mAh" device.

However, it is also touted not to launch until September 2020, meaning there may be many months between its audience and what could easily be the longest screen-on time in the smartphone industry.

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.
