Samsung Galaxy M12 Announced with a 6000 mAh Battery and a 48MP Quad Camera

After a seemingly endless string of leaks surrounding the phone, the Galaxy M12 quietly launched in Vietnam. It's essentially a tweaked Samsung Galaxy A12 with a larger battery and a different chip. If the handset does end up reaching Pakistan, it'll exclusively available with Daraz only just as all the other M-series devices in Pakistan. The design is virtually identical, as is the rest of the specification sheet.

The Samsung Galaxy M12 features yet another forgettable looking shell. It comes in black, blue, and cyan shades. Out on the front, we're looking at a notched screen and a matrix-style camera layout. Its fingerprint scanner doubles as the power button. Speakers are mono-firing, and a 3.5mm headphone jack is available.

The 6.5” display uses a PLS LCD, delivering a 720P resolution and filling a 20:9 aspect ratio. An 8MP, f/2.2 front camera is housed inside the notch. Four cameras make up the rear-facing setup, featuring a 48MP f/2.0 primary camera, a 5MP 123˚ ultra-wide lens, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor.

In typical Samsung fashion, the chipset isn’t listed on the product page. But based on unofficial reports, last year’s MediaTek Helio P35, which powers the Galaxy A12, gives way to the newer and faster Exynos 850 (built on a thinner 8nm fabrication process). Overall it's a nice addition to the Samsung price list.

The Galaxy M12 packs a 6000 mAh battery — a 1000 mAh bigger than the A12’s. It charges over 15W, and a single charge can last 23 hours of playback and 24 hours of web browsing. 3GB/4GB/6GB of memory and 32GB/64GB/128GB of internal storage round off the internal hardware. Plus, the storage is expandable up to a TB. Out of the box, the latest Android11-based OneUI 3.0 powers the Galaxy M12. 

Even though the Samsung Galaxy M12 was listed on the Samsung Vietnam website, no pricing details have been shared yet.
