As for the build, the frame and the back of the phone are made of polycarbonate. Samsung markets the latter as “Glasstic”. The rear panel houses an identical quad-camera setup as found on the recently launched Galaxy M31s. That means It has got the same 64MP Sony IMX682 primary shooter, 12MP ultra-wide unit, 5MP macro snapper, and a 5MP depth sensor.
Further, the handset is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage with support microSD card up to 512GB via a dedicated slot. In the software department, the phone runs One UI Core 2.1 based on Android 10.
Taking about the elephant in the room, the Galaxy M51 is backed by a humongous 7,000mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging and reverse charging. What’s more interesting is despite the huge battery, the smartphone only weighs 213g.
Other features of the handset include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi 5, and Bluetooth 5.1. Unfortunately, it does not feature NFC for contactless payments (Samsung Pay) like the similarly priced Galaxy A51.
