About the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71
Built to make meaningful innovations and awesome mobile experiences to everyone, the Galaxy A71 and A51 are packed with enhanced features: a longer lasting battery to keep up with your busy lifestyle, a smarter camera to help capture the world as you see it and an Infinity-O display that gives an uninterrupted visual experience. These devices will be launched in South Africa in the coming weeks.
Advanced Camera Experience
With four top-of-the-range cameras, the Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51 are built for capturing those moments in life that matter most. Featuring a main camera, Ultra Wide, Macro and Depth cameras, combined with intelligent features, the Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51 allow you to capture almost anything you experience in clear detail and stunning scale.
The main camera photographs stunning images with a 64-megapixel camera on the Galaxy A71, and a 48-megapixel camera on the Galaxy A51. Taking crisp and vivid shots, this camera will let you snap the best photo possible – day or night. The Ultra Wide camera has a 123o degree angle lens, giving you the same view as the human eye and if the shot requires it, the intelligent switch function will recommend Wide Shot and automatically switch it on for you. The Macro camera brings objects into crystal clear focus to capture every last detail while the Depth camera lets your subjects stand out using Live Focus effects.
High-Quality Video Recording
With Super Steady Video you can now capture smooth and stable videos on any adventure. Super Steady Video removes camera shake when you are shooting a video of a moving object or even when you’re moving yourself. Whether you’re running, hiking or even chasing your pets, the Super Steady Video will help you capture the moment perfectly.
