Samsung realized it was doing badly in the low- to mid-range market that has since been taken over by Chinese phone makers. As a result, it axed the J series of phones and launched a new approach with the A-series, which now covers the entry-level to the upper mid-range segment. At that time, we saw the release of the likes of A20 to A90, which have since gone to sale in different markets across the globe.
Kenya was blessed with most of the released in 2019, including the A50 that has proved quite popular. The handheld was refreshed with the launch of the A51 in December 2019. While Samsung Kenya has not revealed availability details, the device appears to be a noteworthy upgrade over its predecessor.
It is one of the few mid-range phones with a quad-camera that now packs a macro lens and carries over the 48 MP main sensor from the A50, as well as an Infinity-O screen that has a centered cutout we first saw in the Note10. The hole houses a 32 MP selfie camera. Other key details fast-charging at 15W for the large 4000 mAh cell. Here are the rest of the specifications:
