The Samsung Galaxy A51 had been welcomed into 2020 by reviewers and consumers alike. This may be why the OEM has apparently decided to refresh it with a new variant already. According to some leaks, this one, like its A71 counterpart, will be capable of next-gen connectivity this time around.
This new version, which goes by the model number SM-A516N thus far, now has some official new documentation thanks to the Wi-Fi Alliance. This body has thus confirmed that it is a smartphone that runs Android 10 and supports dual-band wireless connections up to the ac (albeit not the newer 6) standard.
This certification cannot verify the SM-A516N's mobile-data status, however. This idea stems from a Geekbench leak in which a device of this name is detected as running the Exynos 980 SoC rather than the 9611 of the original A51. This chipset would indeed confer dual-mode 5G on the phone.
