Samsung's M-series has been going strong and soon it will get a new member, seen here in CAD-based renders by @OnLeaks (and new partner Pigtou). This is billed as the Samsung Galaxy M51, though it's apparently a successor to the Galaxy M40 so it might launch as the M41 (there was no M50 to begin with).
The phone has a larger display - a flat 6.5" panel. That's 0.2" bigger than the M40 display, which is why this may get the "M51" name. Anyway, the phone measures 162.6 x 77.5 x 8.5mm, 9.5mm if you include the camera bump on the back.
That hump should look familiar by now. It houses a triple camera, almost certainly a wide, ultrawide and macro setup (or perhaps depth sensor). The selfie camera on the front is inside a punch hole, a rarity in the M-series (only the M40 had one, every other M-phone used a teardrop notch).
The phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack on top, unlike its predecessor, along with a USB-C port on the bottom. Also, the fingerprint reader is on the back - the M-series is value-oriented, so no in-display readers.
The Samsung Galaxy M41 or M51 is expected to be in the $250-300 price range. We'll be on the lookout for concrete specs, but we wouldn't be surprised to see a mid-range Exynos chipset and a Super AMOLED display, plus a large battery, of course.
Probably an ok-ish device, but ... another phablet ...
Samsung should give SD chipsets or need to upgrade their existing mid segments Exynos chipset for higher speed and better graphics support just like SD 730/ 720G
Kudos for Samsung for keeping the 3.5mm jack.
