Samsung’s M series has always been about affordability and balanced specs. To keep that trend going on and more so to negate the likes of Xiaomi and Realme’s increasing dominance in the mid-range segment, Samsung Galaxy M12 has gone official in India for a price of INR 10,999, which is around NPR 17,565 in Nepal.
Samsung’s latest addition brings a 6.5-inch 90Hz Infinity-V LCD screen while powering that high refresh-rate panel is a massive 6,000mAh battery with 15W charging. That’s some striking specs given the phone’s pricing. And in comparison albeit the Redmi Note 10 having an upper hand with 33W charging, it falls short in terms of capacity and screen refresh rate (the Redmi Note 10 has a smaller 5,000mAh battery and 60Hz OLED screen).
Inside, the Samsung Galaxy M12 powers on the Exynos 850 chipset built on an 8nm process which has also been used previously on Samsung’s A-series phone. And if you look at it, it seems Samsung has cut corners here. It’s a two years old chipset and despite the Snapdragon 678 SoC in Note 10 is built on the 11nm process, Samsung’s in-house chipset has always fall pale in comparison.
Meanwhile, in terms of camera, the Galaxy M12 has a pretty decent setup — a 48MP primary sensor with a 5MP ultrawide unit, and two 2MP depth and macro helpers. For selfies, you’ve got an 8MP sensor at the front.
The Samsung Galaxy is available in two storage option; a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage for the above-mentioned price, and a 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant for INR 13,499 (~NPR 21,547)
The phone goes on sale from March 18 through Samsung’s official website, Amazon, and retail stores in India.
