If you had to use one word to describe the Samsung Galaxy M51 it would probably be the huge word. The budget handset comes with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and a huge battery in our office and we’re about to see how good it is.
This is one of the few mid-range phones in Samsung’s portfolio powered by Qualcomm SoC. The Snapdragon 730G sits behind the wheel paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The best part is that the storage in both cases is 128GB, which can also be expanded.
Arguably the most notable feature is the comfy 7,000mAh battery that supports reversing charging (so you can use it as a power bank). While most mid-range and even high-end devices stop at around the 5,000 mAh mark, the M51 provides a large unit inside a fairly manageable 9.5mm thick body. The weight is less than ideal at 213g, but it’s not even as bad as a phone of this size.
Quite possibly, this could be the next endurance champion in our battery position. Sungung claims that the 25W capable charger that comes bundled with the phone will charge it from 0 to 100% in 115 minutes. That may sound a lot but this is a 7,000mAh unit we’re talking about. Stay tuned for the full review to find out how the Galaxy M51 will thrive in our real-life tests.
The phone also carries 5 cameras on board the ship. The main sensor has 64MP and f / 1.8 aperture, the ultrawide snapper reads 12MP f / 2.2, while a 5MP f / 2.4 unit is used for macro photography and another 5MP sensor is tasked with gather detailed information. The cutout is on the front of the display for a 32MP f / 2.0 selfie step.
The handset review is already underway and we’ll be able to share where the Galaxy M51 impresses and where it fails sometime next week.
