A tech blog claims to have learned from "exclusive" sources that Samsung is working on a next-gen budget Galaxy M-series phone with a battery rated for an impressive 7000mAh in capacity. This "M12" is also apparently destined for a 6.7-inch display with a punch-hole selfie camera. These claims may be backed up by new images of a rear panel for this putative device.

91Mobiles now asserts that Samsung will replace the Galaxy M11 with a 2021 phone of vast improvements in at least one area. This could be its alleged 7000mAh battery, which is currently the largest offered by this OEM and is the preserve of the M51 among its mobile devices at present.

However, this class-leading spec is apparently set to trickle down quite a few product tiers in the near future. The M12's existence may also be supported by several images of a novel rear panel that reportedly bears its possible model number (SM-M127F/G).

Interestingly, one of the same photos shows a second number - SM-F127G - hinting that this phone might be rebranded as the Samsung Galaxy F12 in some markets. One or two also show that the phone seems to have a choice of patterned finishes: two-tone or pin-stripe.

This suggests that one is intended for the putative addition to the M-series and another for the rumored upcoming F-series variant. Then again, no other specs, SoC, RAM or internal storage included, is known about this F/M12. Prospective fans might hope for something close to the M11's Snapdragon 450/3-4GB/32-64GB SKUs in order to keep its successor's price at its ~US$145 level.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
