Galaxy Note10UPDATE: The Samsung Galaxy A51 is now available in Kenya. The phone becomes the first phone in Kenya to come with Android 10 out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy A51 follows the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite and the S10 Lite that also launch with Android 10.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 starts selling from Ksh 33,999 and is available in Samsung’s official retail stores countrywide.

If you wanted to experience the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 punch-hole display but for less, then the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A51 should have you excited. The Samsung Galaxy A51 will be the first of Samsung’s 2020 Galaxy A series of phones and you should start saving up if you’re planning to get a new device at the start of next year if these leaks are to be true.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 will pack a punch-hole camera that’s also slated to launch with the Samsung Galaxy S11 series and bring even smaller bezels. The South Korean tech giant has been using waterdrop notch for some of its budget and mid-range smartphones except for the A60 and A8s that feature a punch-hole camera placed in the top-left corner of the display.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 will have similar measurements to the A50/A50s but have a relatively larger display at 6.5″(probably a Super AMOLED panel).Samsung Galaxy A51

For optics, the Samsung Galaxy A51 will feature a new L-shaped quad-camera setup made up of a 48MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 12MP telephoto camera(2x optical zoom)  and a 5MP depth-sensing camera. This four-camera setup joins the Samsung Galaxy A9(2018). Selfies will be taken by a 32MP front camera

You’ll get the usual button placements, a headphone jack, type-c charging port, bottom facing loudspeaker and SIM and microSD slot.
