With premium mid-range phones challenging conventional flagships, the definition of the latter is changing because the smartphone market gets matured. Samsung’s new Galaxy M51 is a prime example of how phones have evolved. although the Galaxy M51 is marketed as a mid-range phone, the phone is nothing but a flagship. In fact, the Galaxy M51 is everything you hoped to work out in a very flagship smartphone and on top of that’s the sole phone with a 7,000mAh battery inside.
 

 

 

With Samsung Galaxy M51, Samsung has kept the identical two core pillars – massive battery and Super AMOLED panel. However, one in all the main additions comes in terms of performance, Samsung has finally added a strong Snapdragon processor to the M series and therefore the pricing is additionally pretty sweet this point around. Similarly, it also brings a capable array of cameras with a lot of shooting modes that aren’t common during this segment.

 

 

A few hours after commencing to use the Samsung Galaxy M51, here are my first impressions.

 

 

Samsung has given the Galaxy M51 a “Glasstic” back panel. It’s glossy and striking to appear at but also picks up fingerprints very easily. I couldn’t find a case within the box, so i might recommend that you simply pick one up if you get this phone. there is a quad-camera setup within the upper left corner of the rear, which is marginally raised. This quad-camera setup consists of a 64-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel macro camera. this is often a clone of what we saw on the Galaxy M31s. For selfies, the Galaxy M51 features a 32-megapixel front camera. The Samsung camera app also has the one Take feature that offers multiple output options after making an attempt.
 

 

Samsung ships the Galaxy M51 with a 25W charger which should be relatively quick to top this mammoth battery off. The charger features a Type-C port and you get a Type-C to Type-C cable within the box. This cable can even be accustomed to reverse-charge other Type-C devices using the Galaxy M51.
 

 

 

The Samsung Galaxy M51 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC which could be a first for the Galaxy M series. The Motorola One Fusion+ (Review) and also the Poco X2 (Review) are powered by the identical processor. Samsung offers the Galaxy M51 in two variants, one with 6GB of RAM and also the other with 8GB of RAM, priced at Rs. 24,999 and Rs. 26,999 respectively. Storage remains identical at 128GB for both variants, and it’s expandable by up to 512GB.

 

 

On the software front, the Galaxy M51 runs Android 10 with Samsung’s custom OneUI Core 2.1 on top. it absolutely was running the August security patch, which is extremely recent. If you have got used any recent Samsung smartphone, you may end up reception with the Galaxy M51. whether or not you haven’t, you will find the UI to be very easy to use. There are quite a few preinstalled apps on the device like Amazon Shopping, MX TakaTak, Chingari, Moj, Snapchat, Candy Crush Saga, and Daily Hunt.

 

 

The Galaxy M51 felt snappy within the short time I spent with it before writing my first impressions. I’m looking forward to testing the cameras and seeing how long the massive battery lasts with my usage. Stay tuned for the complete review of the Galaxy M51 to work out if this monster will be your friend.
