Samsungs inexpensive midrange 5G phone, the Galaxy A51, is finally available at Verizon. Compared to other phones launched within the previous year, the $550 Galaxy A51 5G UW is one of the more budget friendly 5G phones right now: $900 less expensive than the (stopped) Samsungs Galaxy Z Flip initially cost, $250 less than the OnePlus 8 5G UW, and $100 cheaper than the Galaxy A71 5G UW.
Compared to the Galaxy A71 5G UW, the A51 5G UW has the exact same Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and 128GB of storage. The A51 5G UW has a 6.5-inch OLED screen, making it a little smaller sized than the A71 5G UWs 6.7-inch OLED screen, plus a 48-megapixel main cam, whereas the A71 5G UW has a 64-megapixel main cam.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G UW retails for $550 on Verizons site
Initially revealed back in April, the Galaxy A51 5G UW consists of Verizons ultra-wideband 5G network and will add its low-band network when it shows up later this year. As my colleague Chris Welch mentioned in this 5G explainer video, while Verizons high-band is “blazing quick,” the protection locations are spotty outdoors and have practically no protection while inside. Verizon is expected to release its low-band 5G network this fall.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G UW retails for $550 on Verizons website, but the company is providing a momentary promotion to buy the phone for just $360 if you sign up for a new Unlimited plan.
