Samsung is launching a 5G version of the Galaxy A51 in the US this week

Samsung and Xiaomi’s midrange phones dominate Android bestsellers record in Q1 2020

Samsung’s next midrange phone to get 5G connectivity is the Galaxy A51. Originally launched back in April, the A51 costs $400 normally and sits comfortably in the zone occupied by the now-discounted Pixel 3A and newly announced Pixel 4A (of which there is also a 5G version coming). But the new 5G version of the A51 will go for $500 and work on T-Mobile and Verizon’s 5G networks, Samsung says.

Samsung originally announced that its Galaxy A-series lineup would get 5G back in April, and the A51 is the second device after the A71, which costs $600, to get the faster network treatment. Sporting slightly less impressive specs compared with the A71, the A51 has a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED Infinity-O display with a hole-punch camera in the screen, a totally fine quad-camera system on the back, 128GB of onboard storage, 4GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery. It has an understandably midrange processor, the octa-core Exynos 9611, but is otherwise a very decent midrange device with an impressive screen (and also a headphone jack).

Samsung says the A51 5G will come to T-Mobile, which just today announced an expansion of its 5G network by 30 percent, on August 7th. As part of that, the device will also come to the T-Mobile-powered Metro network as well. Starting August 13th, the A51 5G UW version will be available on Verizon and its 5G millimeter-wave network, which also supports the 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy S20.
