AT&T announced today that Samsung's Galaxy A51 5G will be up for grabs via its online marketplace or at any of its physical stores starting August 21. The device arrived at T-Mobile on August 7 and at Verizon on August 13.
On AT&T, the phone will cost $5 per month on a 30-month installment plan for both new and existing customers with an unlimited plan. This deal is available only for a limited time, bringing the total cost of the handset to $150, which represents a huge discount from its regular price of $499.99. You can even get the phone entirely free if you swap an existing phone with a trade-in value of at least $35.
The Galaxy A51 5G was first unveiled in April of this year along with its regular version and other A series phones from Samsung. It packs some improvements from its regular model, though, including a beefier Exynos 980 SoC (compared to the Exynos 9611 chipset on the Galaxy A51) and a 4,500mAh battery. Under the hood, it also packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that's expandable up to 1TB with a microSD card. In addition, it features a 6.5-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O Display with a punch-hole cutout for the front camera. It also boasts a quad-camera setup on the back comprising a 48MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a depth and macro camera.
