With Samsung, we get 12 MP, f/2.2, 123˚ ultrawide lens, a 5 MP, f/2.4, macro, and 5 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor. While on the Oppo side, things are quite underwhelming with 8 MP, f/2.2, 119˚ ultrawide shooter, 2 MP, f/2.4, macro, and 2 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor. For video recording, both the devices can go up to 4K @ 30 fps. While at the front we get a 32MP shooter on both but Samsung has a better and bigger f/2.0 aperture for better results even under low-light.

Both the devices are equipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.

While for charging, M51 supports 25W fast charging and the charger is provided in the box. While Oppo F19 Pro has almost 42% smaller 4310 mAh battery and supports 30W fast-charging and here too, the charger is provided in the box.
