A new report claims that the phone will now launch in India in September. Previous reports had indicated that the Galaxy M51 would launch in June or July but looks like that will not be the case.

According to the report by MySmartPrice, citing industry sources, the launch of the rumoured Samsung Galaxy M51 has been pushed to September due to production issues, most likely brought on by the disruptions caused by coronavirus pandemic. Further, the report claims that this could be the most powerful Galaxy M-series smartphone till now, but its official specifications are a mystery. However, the smartphone has allegedly been spotted in a Geekbench listing, suggesting the presence of either a Snapdragon 675 or a Snapdragon 730 SoC.
The Galaxy M51 was first rumoured late last year, when it was said that the production of the phone has started in Samsung’s Noida factory. Then, in March this year, some renders of the rumoured phone were spotted online, hinting at a hole-punch display design and triple rear camera setup. This was followed by a report in May that claimed the rumoured Galaxy M51 will launch in June or July. The latest sighting of the phone was the Geekbench listing earlier this month.
