As the successor to the global model, Galaxy A50, the Samsung Galaxy A51 still has the arduous task of landing in the global market. The latest Wi-Fi Alliance certification indicates that the Galaxy A51 will be available in the US market. The certification indicates that the device model number is SM-A515U. The “U” at the end indicates a US device locked by the operator. Further firmware leaks indicate that the phone will be available via AT & T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. These are the four major carriers in the US. There are also rumors that the Samsung Galaxy A51 will have a 5G version. However, this version will first debut in South Korea before it rolls out to regions.
