The back is shiny glass like material, which the company calls “Glastic”. It is acceptable at this range because most people use a back cover. Galaxy M51 has four cameras at the backside in a rectangular layout. The side rail has a power button, volume rocker, and a fingerprint scanner. This design of the phone is ordinary and looks just like other regular M series phones.

In Nepal, we get both models for purchase. The phone supports expansion of storage with a micro SD card. Snapdragon 730G is a processor that was launched in 2019, and it is built with an 8nm fabrication node. It comes with Adreno 618 GPU and has Snapdragon Elite Gaming features. The features such as Wi-Fi Latency Manager and jank reducer help to provide a better gaming experience. This processor is for mid to high level use and can do all regular works with ease and also provide power for mid-level gaming demand.
Now the most important and interesting part is the battery. Samsung Galaxy M51 has a 7000 mAh battery on the inside. It is a non-removable unit, and it is massive. This is one of the first phones to have such a large battery. We remember when Gionee Marathon M5 was launched in 2015 with a 6020 mAh battery. Now, this M51 is another milestone in the smartphone market. Samsung has also provided 25W fast charging support with M51. The company states that the battery can be charged in 2 hours.
