Samsung had introduced the Galaxy A12 in January 2021, and the smartphone was launched in India in February. The device was available in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB. The South Korean firm has relaunched the Galaxy A12 in India, and the new variant of the phone comes with a different processor compared to the original version.
The new version of the Galaxy A12 features the Exynos 850 processor. In comparison, the original Galaxy A12 came equipped with the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset. The Exynos 850 is slightly more powerful and power-efficient (thanks to its 8nm manufacturing process) than the MediaTek Helio P35. The new version of the phone also comes with Android 11 (with One UI Core 3) out of the box, which should make it eligible for the Android 13 update.
The Exynos 850-equipped Galaxy A12 bears model number SM-A127F, while the Helio P35-equipped version has model number SM-A125F. The new variant of the phone was launched as the Galaxy A12 Nacho in Mexico.
The rest of its specifications remain similar to the original Galaxy A12. It means that the phone features a 6.5-inch PLS IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution, an 8MP selfie camera with Full HD video recording, and a 48MP+5MP+2MP+2MP quad-camera setup at the rear with Full HD video recording. The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
The Galaxy A12 has 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage. It has a microSD card slot, too. Connectivity features of the device include a dual-SIM card slot, 4G LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is powered by the same 5,000mAh battery that is used by the original Galaxy A12. It also features 15W fast charging.
The 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant of the Galaxy A12 is priced at INR 13,999 (around $189), while the variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage costs INR 16,499 (around $222).
