Samsung Galaxy A51 To Arrive with L-shaped Quad Camera, Latest Leak Confirms

A recently-leaked image of the back chassis of what is supposed to be the Galaxy A51 confirms previous rumors of a quad-camera feature. A pleasant surprise is the L-shaped design that houses the four rear-facing powerful cameras.

UPDATE: Samsung Galaxy A51's First Renders Emerge, Punch-Hole Display and Quad Cams Seen

In spite of the Samsung Galaxy A50 being released only a few months back, talks about the Galaxy A51 being in production have been popping up here and there, with previous leaks hinting at a mid-2020 launch. This is not surprising as the Galaxy A50, which is part of the fifth-generation Galaxy A series lineup, has raked in significant sales especially in the midrange market and it is but likely for the Galaxy A51 to carry on with its predecessor's success.

Just recently, a leaked image of the rear frame of the supposed Galaxy A51 made its way online and caused excitement for many smartphone and Samsung brand enthusiasts as it shows an L-shaped cutout on the upper left corner dedicated to the camera module. A separate smaller hole for the LED flash is seen next to the cutout. It is believed that a 48MP primary camera, 12MP ultrawide shooter, 12MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom, and 5MP depth-sensing camera will be fitted right into this L-shaped slot. It was previously rumored that the Galaxy A51 would have a quad-camera feature, but the common notion would be a vertical layout, or cameras that are aligned on top of the other. If this L-shaped camera-housing design would be officially confirmed, then Samsung has pioneered a unique new look for quad-camera phones. The Galaxy A51 will be the second Samsung smartphone model to have four rear cameras next to the Galaxy A9 (2018).

Other specifications of the Galaxy A51 derived from the leak include a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display capable of FHD+ resolution and a waterdrop-style notch that serves as housing for the 32MP selfie camera. The in-display fingerprint reader on the Galaxy A50 might also be retained in the Galaxy A51.

It's hard to tell the hardware info based on the render, but rumors have it that the Galaxy A51 might run on an Exynos 9611 octa-core SoC with 4 Cortex-A73 processors clocking at 2.3GHz and 4 Cortex-A53 processors clocking at 1.7GHz, and a Mali-G72 MP3 graphics processor. It will be equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of ROM. A 4,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging is believed to power up the smartphone.

The Galaxy A50's successor is said to come with an Android 10-based One UI 2.0. It will also have a 3.5mm headphone jack, dedicated microSD slot, dual SIM slot, and a USB Type-C port.

If the leaked details were to be confirmed, the Galaxy A51 is a formidable smartphone to watch out for in 2020. As Samsung usually launches its flagship first, expect the Galaxy A51 to arrive after the release of the Galaxy S11.
