With the release of the Samsung Galaxy M51, the South Korean tech giant has created a rival to the mid-range smartphone OnePlus Nord, released in July earlier this year. The Samsung M51 is a decent all-rounder in the mid-range segment and could benefit from current circumstances as some consumers are looking for a phone that is not made in China amid rising tensions at the border. Let’s take a look at the two phones in detail.
The Samsung M51 comes with a 6.7-inch FHD + Super AMOLED Plus Infinity O Display, which offers a 20: 9 aspect ratio with Gorilla Glass 3 Protection support.
The OnePlus Nord has a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel with the same aspect ratio as Samsung. But OnePlus outperforms Samsung by offering a 90Hz refresh rate.
The Samsung M51 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, capable of running FPS games smoothly.

The OnePlus Nord has a 4,115mAh battery that supports 30W warp charging. It takes less to charge the phone completely. Also, OnePlus claims the phone can charge anywhere from 0 to 70 percent in just 30 minutes. But the larger battery life of the Samsung M51 ensures you stay away from the charging point.
