The Samsung Galaxy M12 has been unveiled today in Vietnam. The device shares lots of similarities with the Galaxy A12 however, it differs slightly with its large-sized 6000 mAh battery capacity.
The Galaxy M12 is built around a 6.5″ PLS LCD display having both 720p+ resolutions (20:9) and an Infinity-V panel to accommodate the 8 MP selfie camera. As for the rear end, there’s a 48MP sensor that can record 1080p videos (at 30 fps) and capture portrait photos with the assistance of a depth sensor. Also, there’s a 2 MP macro camera, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, which captures shots with a 123° field of view.
Samsung is mum on the chipset that powers the Galaxy M12 – it just lists the 2.0 GHz octa-core processor (unofficial info points to the Exynos 850, which means 8x Cortex-A55, plus a Mali-G52 MP1 GPU).
There are plenty of memory configurations available, with 3/4/6 GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB built-in storage. The card tray has a dedicated spot for a microSD card (up to 1 TB) should you need more storage.
The 6000 mAh battery supports the same 15W fast charging over USB-C as the Galaxy A12 and promises 24 hours of web browsing on a single charge (over Wi-Fi). Alternatively, it can play videos for 23 hours straight or music for nearly 5 days.
There’s also Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz, b/g/n) and Bluetooth 5.0, plus support for GPS, GLONASS, Beideou and Galileo positioning. NFC is missing, however. A fingerprint reader is built into the power button on the side.
