Samsung is working on yet another affordable phone with a big display and a high-capacity battery. The Galaxy M12 first surfaced last month when its 3D CAD renders were leaked. Later, some of the phone’s specifications were revealed along with its Bluetooth certification. We now have a report that offers some information about its launch time frame.
According to a new report from 91Mobiles, Samsung has already started the mass production of the Galaxy M12 in India. This means that the phone could be launched in the first quarter of 2021, at least in India. The unnamed source also reportedly shared live images of the phone’s chassis, which further confirms that it will feature an Infinity-V display.
Going by previous leaks, the Galaxy M12 features a 6.7-inch display (probably an LCD unit). It measures 163.9 x 75.9 x 8.9mm and features a side-mounted fingerprint reader. The phone was seen rocking an Exynos 850 processor and 3GB RAM. It will be launched with Android 11-based One UI 3.x, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 7,000mAh battery.
The Galaxy M12 could also be launched as the Galaxy F12 in some markets as the device goes by multiple model numbers: SM-M127F, SM-M127G, SM-F127F, and SM-F127G. Since the Exynos 850 lacks a 5G modem, the Galaxy M12 will not feature 5G connectivity.
