Samsung Galaxy A51 (SM-A515F) Passes Through FCC Certification, Launch Imminent


After appearing on the Wi-Fi Alliance, Geekbench, and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), the Samsung Galaxy A51 has now also been spotted on the FCC this afternoon. There has been plenty of evidence that a launch of the new A-series handset is very close and the FCC listing adds to it. The model number of the phone is SM-A515F/N and the FCC report has a detailed report about the phone’s frequencies, charging voltage, RF emissions and other tests.

Going through the certification documents, it was noticed one variant of the Galaxy A51 SM-A515F/N has a single SIM card slot, while its derivative model supports dual-SIM connectivity. Moreover, the accessories bundled inside the box include a Micro-USB data cable and earphones. Supported LTE bands include LTE Band 4, LTE Band 5, LTE Band 12, LTE Band 13, LTE Band 17, LTE Band 26, and LTE Band 41. GSM bands 850, 1900 and WCDMA 850, 1700, 1900, as well as Wi-Fi 2.4GHz (802.11 b/g/n) and NFC, were mentioned as well.

Besides this, there’s plenty of information regarding the Galaxy A50s successor which we mention below. The bundled fast charger model is EP-TA200 which is already available on many portals right now. The battery (used for the phone certification) with model number EB-BA515ABY as seen in FCC certification documents, has been certified earlier on BIS as well.

In terms of design, leaked CAD renders revealed a chassis similar to the Note 10 as far as the hole-punch and rear camera position is concerned. Since these factory CAD renders are pretty accurate, we expect a quad-camera setup on the back. The formation is expected to be composed of a 48MP primary camera, a 12MP wide-angle camera, a 5MP macro lens and a 5MP depth sensor, suggest the latest information.

Coming to the front, a 6.5-inch AMOLED display powered by a 4,000mAh battery (as per our exclusive tip) and an Exynos 9611 octa-core processor is likely to complete the vital components of the mid-ranger. We can also expect Samsung to load the handset with the latest Android 10-based One UI 2.0 software making it one of the very first Samsung handsets to sport the latest firmware out-of-the-box.

As per the latest tip, we could see the model go official in December although there are no official indications about it as of now.
