If you are someone who has recently bought or planning to buy this smartphone, then this guide is for you. In this article, we will make sure to track the next upcoming major OS update; Android 12 (One UI 4.0) for the Samsung Galaxy M51.
Being the 12th installment of the Android series, Android 12 creates a lot of hype with its new features, design, UI improvements, and many more. According to the official, they are planning to release the stable version of their latest OS update anywhere soon in the month of August or October month. Meanwhile, every big smartphone venture already started rolling out their OS skin based on Android 12 for their flagship segments. Previously, Google stated that this update is going to be one of the most prominent changes ever made by Google in their OS. This is the main reason behind the hype created for the upcoming updates.
Samsung Galaxy M51 Specifications
Samsung is a pioneer in displays, and they are not holding back with the M51 either. We get a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity O display with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The selfie camera is housed in a small center punch hole at the top. The peak brightness is a bit low, though, at just 420 nits. And we only get the dated Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection in the front. Under the hood, we get the capable Snapdragon 730G, which is a bit old but still a competent processor. It can handle most games and heavy-duty tasks easily.
With the Samsung Galaxy M51, we also get Android 10 onboard running on top of One UI 2.1. And we get two RAM options with this device, a 6GB base variant, and an 8GB upper variant. The internal storage remains the same at 128GB. In terms of optics, we get a quad-core setup at the back with a 64MP Sony primary sensor, a 12MP ultra wide-angle sensor, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro sensor. On the front, we get a 32MP selfie shooter. The front camera support 4K video recording along with Front Slow Motion Video, AR Doodle, and AR Emoji.
The Galaxy M51 is not a 5G compatible device, and you get only 4G(LTE) here along with the other basic connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. You don’t get the modern In-display fingerprint sensor, though. Instead, you get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Will Samsung Galaxy M51 get Android 12 Update?
Of course, the Samsung Galaxy M51 came out of the box with Android 10 and later received the Android 11 R update. According to Samsung’s recent policy change, their device will get three years of major OS support and four years of a security patch update. This does mean that the Galaxy M51 will get the Android 12 update. Most probably, just after the release, within a few, it will get an Android 12 update. Yeah! It is evident that Samsung first works on their flagship smartphone to roll out a new OS update. Then, slowly and steadily, it will provide the new update to all its eligible smartphones.
