Samsung quietly releases the Galaxy M12 onto store shelves in Vietnam


Last updated: February 5th, 2021 at 15:03 UTC+02:00

Samsung has once again released a new budget phone for 2021 without letting the world know about it. This time, it’s the Galaxy M12 who does the honors, and even though no official announcements preceded it, the device is now available for purchase in Vietnam.

Of note is that, as of this writing, the Galaxy M12 can’t be purchased online from Samsung’s eshop, but customers can refer to a ‘where to buy‘ map and locate nearby physical stores that have the Galaxy M12 up for sale. The phone is available in three color options: black, blue, and green.

Galaxy M12 official specifications

Samsung’s new M-branded budget device would’ve looked entirely like a rebadged Galaxy A12 if it weren’t for the different pattern on the back panel. However, even though both phones look similar and share various characteristics, a few of key differences between them exist.

The new Galaxy M12 has an Exynos 850 chipset instead of a MediaTek one, and it’s powered by a larger 6,000mAh battery, up from 5,000mAh. In addition, it ships to customers with Android 11 instead of version 10.

Otherwise, the phone has a similar 6.5-inch PLS TFT LCD with a resolution of 1600 by 720 and an Infinity-V design, the same 48MP / 5MP / 2MP / 2MP quad-camera configuration and 8MP selfie shooter, as well as similar memory options, though for the time being only the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is listed at Samsung Vietnam.

Other details pertaining to the new budget phone include 15W fast charging, USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n. The phone lacks support for Samsung Pay and DeX.
