Samsung Galaxy M51 launch in India has been teased by Amazon. The online marketplace has created a microsite that gives us a glimpse of the new Samsung phone. A previous report suggested that the Samsung Galaxy M51 will debut in the country as early as the second week of September. The phone is said to carry a massive, 7,000mAh battery. Some early renders of the Galaxy M51 also suggested its multiple rear cameras and a hole-punch display design. The Samsung Galaxy M51 is also likely to come with a fast charging technology.
The microsite created by Amazon shows that the Samsung Galaxy M51 is launching in India soon. It also carries an image showing the front of the new smartphone that has a hole-punch display design — with a cutout at the centre of the display. This is unlike the early leaked renders that showed a hole cut at the top-left corner of the screen.
Alongside Amazon's microsite, Samsung India has posted a video teaser through its Twitter account that gives us a sneak peek of the Galaxy M51. The 23-second video shows the phone with a quad rear camera setup along with an LED flash module. It also suggests the presence of an in-display or a side-mounted fingerprint sensor as a rear-mounted sensor isn't visible when the phone is shown from its back side. Furthermore, the teaser video mentions a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O Display.
