A couple of days back, a tip leaked regarding the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A12 in India.
The leak stated that the South Korean giant would unveil the phone this week. So far, nothing has happened – maybe tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the brand has joined forces with a reputable Indian tech influencer – Mukul Sharma – to tease the price of the handset in the country.
On Twitter, Mukuk Sharma posted a short clip revealing that an upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphone with a 48-megapixel quad-camera setup will sell for under ₹15,000 in the country.
Though he did not mention the official name of the Galaxy A smartphone; the few details he stated hinted that the phone would arrive as the Galaxy A12.
Also, it is the only Galaxy A-series smartphone scheduled to launch in India this week.
Recall, the Samsung Galaxy A12 was first unveiled in Europe last year November. The smartphone has the same build as the new Galaxy M12.
However, they differ in terms of the chipset. The Galaxy A12 features the MediaTek-powered Helio P35 processor and One UI Core 2.0 based on Android 10 OS.
On the other hand, the Galaxy M12 comes with the Exynos 850 and One UI Core 3.0 based on Android 11 OS.
The Samsung Galaxy A12 sports a 6.5-inch PLS TFT LCD panel that has a dewdrop notch design. The screen offers the user an HD+ resolution; and it features an 8-megapixel selfie snapper.
The rear camera setup comprises a 48-megapixel primary lens, an ultrawide 5-megapixel sensor, and a pair of 2-megapixel sensors – one is a macro shooter and the other a depth sensor.
The handset supports connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, dual-SIM, single-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO).
Other features of the Galaxy A12 include a microSD card, USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a rear-fitted fingerprint scanner.
The Galaxy A12 draws power from a 5,000mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging.
