With Samsung Galaxy M51’s launch, the South-Korean tech giant has created a competitor to the mid-range smartphone OnePlus Nord which was launched in July earlier this year. Samsung M51 is a decent all-rounder in the mid-range segment and can benefit from the current situations as few customers are looking for a phone that is not made in China amidst the growing tension on the border. Let’s take a look at the two phones in detail.
Samsung M51 vs OnePlus Nord: Display
Samsung M51 comes with a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Plus Infinity O Display that offers a 20:9 aspect ratio with Gorilla Glass 3 protection support. OnePlus Nord has a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel with the same aspect ratio as Samsung. But OnePlus overpowers Samsung by offering a 90Hz refresh rate.
Samsung M51 vs OnePlus Nord: Processor
Samsung M51 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with up to 2.2GHz octa-core processor which is capable of running FPS games smoothly. OnePlus Nord has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor which is superior when compared to the 730G.
Samsung M51 vs OnePlus Nord: Camera
Both the smartphones have a quad-camera setup on the rear. Samsung M51 has a 64MP primary Sony IMX 682 sensor, 12MP secondary ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field of view, 5MP portrait lens and 5MP macro sensor. OnePlus Nord has a 48MP Sony IMX 586 primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens with 119 field-of-view, 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.
