Samsung Galaxy A12s: the new low cost is coming

It is a slight update of the model currently on sale on which, however, there are many assumptions and few certainties: here are some specifications and especially the price

Not even a year after the presentation of Galaxy A12, to hear what is rumored on the web, Samsung would be close to the officialization of the slightly revised version in terms of technical features that will be called, simply, Galaxy A12s. The current smartphone was presented in November last year, and now, a few months later, it seems to be time for the successor.

After a couple of rumors the picture around Galaxy A12s, the low-midrange smartphone from Samsung, unfortunately can not be defined clear. Several information are missing, but there is the certainty that with him Samsung hopes to have a good arrow in his bow to keep up with the brands that are going for the most on that range as Realme and Redmi, well known and appreciated by users who want to spend relatively little for an Android smartphone while maintaining good performance. Usually the sacrifices in this market range concern materials, photographic performance and in some cases even the definition and type of display.

Samsung Galaxy A12s, the possible specifications

As anticipated in the opening, the information on the account of Samsung Galaxy A12s are not very many, although the Korean smartphone is indicated close to the presentation, especially for the appearance of recent days between the Philippine pages of Samsung support and the passage from the certification body Bluetooth SIG.

The latest rumor speculates the presence on board Galaxy A12s of the Exynos 850 chip manufactured by Samsung, and the Korean user interface based on Android 11. Nothing else for the rest on the account of a product that anyway is described as very similar to its predecessor, despite some features should be revised.

Such as the chip, which as mentioned should be the Exynos 850 from Samsung ready to replace the Helio P35 that instead has "powered" the smartphone on the market along with a quantity of memories that in the most equipped configuration could count on 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The display, which on the Galaxy A12 has not convinced everyone, could be improved: it is a 6.5-inch IPS panel with HD+ resolution of 720 x 1,600 pixels. Understandable for the price range that Samsung can renounce to an OLED display - although some examples among the direct competition there is -, you could ask for something more instead in terms of resolution.

Possible improvements on Galaxy A12s, but far from obvious, on the front of the cameras: the current smartphone has an 8-megapixel front camera and four at the rear, with the main 48-megapixel, a 5 MP ultra wide-angle and two sensors "accessories" of 2 MP each.

It is unlikely that Samsung Galaxy A12s will have a different battery, since to do better it would be necessary to exceed the already high 5,000 mAh of the current smartphone, which also has charging at 15 watts.

Samsung Galaxy A12s, the latest on the price
