Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A51 5G and Galaxy A71 5G earlier this year. Both phones are fueled by the Exynos 980 chipset. Last week, Samsung introduced the Galaxy A71 5G. The handset arrived with Snapdragon 765G, instead of Exynos 980. Rumors have it that Snapdragon 765G version of the Galaxy A51 will be also heading to the U.S. in the coming month. Ahead of the launch, a Verizon variant of the Galaxy A51 5G with model number SM-A716V has appeared on the Geekbench benchmarking platform.
The SM-A516V that has appeared on Geekbench could belong to the Verizon variant of the upcoming Galaxy A51 5G phone. It is driven by Qualcomm’s ‘lito’ processor that is believed to be the Snapdragon 765G SoC and it runs on Android 10 OS. The chipset is coupled with 6 GB of RAM. It scored 622 and 1,928 points in Geekbench 5’s single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
The SM-A516V has also appeared in the database of the Wi-Fi Alliance certification platform. The listing reveals it supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac and runs on Android 10 OS. The support for NFC is confirmed as it has bagged NFC certification.
The Galaxy A71 5G with a pricing of $599 is selling as the cheapest 5G phone in the U.S. at present. However, the Galaxy A51 5G that is expected to break cover soon may dethrone A71 5G to become the most affordable 5G smartphone in the U.S.
The Galaxy A51 5G SD765G version is expected to have the same specs that are available on its Exynos 980 variant. Hence, it is likely to come with specs like a 6.5-inch Infinity-O S-AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, 48-megapixel quad cameras, 32-megapixel selfie camera and a 4,500mAh battery with 15W fast charging support.
