Samsung has quietly unveiled its newest low-cost Galaxy M12 smartphone. It comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ screen, four rear cameras, an Exynos 850 SoC and a 6,000mAh battery. The device is only available for purchase in Vietnam at the moment for an unspecified price.

Samsung's newest (somewhat) affordable Samsung Galaxy M12 is finally here. We knew very little about the smartphone until now, with one report telling us that it would pack a colossal 7,000mAh battery. Unfortunately, that isn't true. The device is official now, but Samsung has neglected to specify its retail price because it is exclusive to a handful of brick and mortar retailers in Vietnam. A global launch shouldn't be too far off, and we can expect the Samsung Galaxy M12 to cost around US$199 at most.

For all intents and purposes, the Samsung Galaxy M12 is a slightly better version of the Galaxy A12, with the most significant upgrade being its objectively better Exynos 850 SoC. Its battery capacity gets upped to 6,000mAh (15W fast charging supported) too. The Samsung Galaxy M12 comes with four rear cameras; a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro lens. An 8MP selfie camera rounds things off. Video recording capabilities are limited to 1080p 30 FPS on both cameras.

Moving on to the display, the Samsung Galaxy M12 comes with a 6.5-inch PLS IPS screen with HD+ resolution (720 x 1,600), which is interrupted by a waterdrop-style notch for the selfie camera. Memory and storage max out at 4GB and 64GB, respectively. The latter can be further expanded to 1TB via a micro SD card. Connectivity options include 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and a USB Type-C port. Lastly, the Samsung Galaxy M12 runs Android 10-based One UI 2.0 out of the box.
