Samsung Galaxy M12 Device Overview
The Samsung Galaxy M12 features a 6.7-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Yes, we don’t get an AMOLED panel here, but that is understandable since this is an entry-level M series smartphone from Samsung. For processing, we have Samsung’s very own Exynos 850, which is built on an 8nm manufacturing process. It is an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. We get Android 10 out of the box with One UI 3.0 running on top of it.
In terms of optics, we get a quad-camera setup at the rear and a single camera at the front. At the rear, there is a 13MP sensor paired with an f/1.8 lens, an 8MP ultrawide sensor paired with an f/2.2 lens, a 2MP macro sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens, and a 2MP depth sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens. Coming to the front, we get a single 8MP camera for selfies. Both the front and the rear setup is limited to 1080p video recording.
There are two variants of the phone when it comes to RAM and internal storage. The base variant has 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, and the higher variant has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is a dedicated slot for storage expansion too. In terms of connectivity, we get Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, FM radio, and USB Type-C 2.0. Again for sensors, we get the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, and proximity. The details about the other sensors are not yet confirmed. Powering all this up is a 6,000 mAh cell, that will support 15W fast charging.
