  • The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G and the Galaxy A71 5G will arrive this summer with mid-range price tags.
  • Meanwhile, Samsung is launching the Galaxy A01 and the non-5G version of the Galaxy A51 on April 9 via Verizon.
  • Samsung came short of announcing the pricing for its upcoming mid-range 5G phones, although we expect to learn more over the coming weeks.

Samsung has announced two new 5G mid-range smartphones for the summer, known as the Galaxy A51 5G and the Galaxy A71 5G. The company will initially bring a non-5G version of the A51 to the U.S. on April 9 carrying a price tag of $399.99. This phone will pack a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O screen accompanied by a 10nm octa-core processor.

There are four cameras on the back, consisting of a 48MP primary sensor, a 12MP secondary sensor, and two 5MP sensors. There’s a 32MP selfie camera onboard as well, and a 4,000 mAh battery.

The Galaxy A51 5G will have pretty much the same hardware, but a different processor, supposedly the 8nm Exynos 980 chipset. The battery capacity here is slightly bigger at 4,500 mAh with 15W fast charging support.

The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G will launch this summer alongside the Galaxy A51 5G and will be packing a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen, quad rear cameras 64MP + 12MP + 5MP + 5MP, and a 32MP front camera. This will run the same Exynos 980 chipset as the Galaxy A51 5G. The battery capacity will be the same at 4,500 mAh. This smartphone will offer support for 25W fast charging.

The Galaxy A51 5G and the A71 5G will come with headphone jacks and under-display optical fingerprint scanners. They will also come with Android 10 and One UI 2 out of the box, although we will be counting down to the arrival of Android 11 by then. For now, customers can pick up the LTE variant of the Galaxy A51 as well as the Galaxy A01 on April 9 which will cost $99.99 at launch.

Galaxy A01

The Galaxy A01 will be available via Verizon on April 9, while other carriers will sell it subsequently. The Galaxy A51 will also be sold on Verizon first on April 9, while Sprint will start selling the phone the next day on April 10.
