Samsung is expected to launch a 5G version of its Galaxy A51 smartphone as images hinting at the possibility have popped up. Galaxy A51 made its debut in India earlier this January. There's no official word on the launch of its 5G variant as yet.

Images of the Galaxy A51 5G were shared by noted leakster Evan Blass (via GSMArena). The phone looks quite like the regular Galaxy A51 except for a slight pattern difference on the rear panel. There's a punch-hole selfie camera up front and a quad camera setup at the back placed on the right corner. The Galaxy A51 5G is also seen in a black colour variant.

Other than the 5G support, the new Galaxy A51 is also rumoured to run on the Exynos 980 chipset. This would be another upgrade over the Exynos 9611 chipset that the Galaxy A51 uses. No other change has been reported so far between the two phones.
