The list of regions in which the Galaxy M12 is available for purchase is expanding, with Samsung now bringing the budget phone to Russia. The Galaxy M12 is now available for purchase in two storage configurations and three color options including black, blue, and green.
Unlike the Galaxy M12 that was released in India, the version for Russia — and indeed other markets outside of India — carries a smaller 5,000mAh battery instead of a 6,000mAh unit, but it retains the 15W fast charging capabilities.
Fortunately, other specs have remained unchanged, which means that the Galaxy M12 is now Samsung’s cheapest smartphone in Russia to boast a high-refresh rate display. The panel has an HD+ resolution and a rather outdated Infinity-V display notch, but the PLS TFT LCD panel boasts a 90Hz refresh rate.
Galaxy M12 price in Russia starts at ~$175
The Galaxy M12 is coming to Russia with two memory configuration — 3GB / 32GB and 4GB / 64GB. The variant with 32GB of built-in storage is priced at 12,990 rubles ($175), and customers who may want to purchase the 64GB variant will have to pay 14,990 rubles ($202).
Samsung’s low-cost, high-refresh rate smartphone sport NFC connectivity, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and it’s powered by the Exynos 850 chipset. The Russian model has a 48MP main camera, a 5MP ultrawide shooter, and two 2MP depth and macro sensors.
