Short description Samsung Galaxy A12

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 4 modules (48 MP Wide, 5 MP UltraWide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy A12 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Samsung got the name Samsung Galaxy A12 and was announced in November 2020 (see all new smartphones 2020). This model is released in the series of smartphones Samsung Galaxy A.

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy A12 works out of the box under the operating system Android version 10. According to our information, this model has not received any updates to the software, and if you want to choose some other smartphone on this version of the OS with support for updates, then look at these smartphones on Android 10 in our catalog.

In addition the Samsung Galaxy A12 — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. But this model has one weak point — it does not support 5G networks, which can significantly increase the speed of receiving and sending data to the network. If such a requirement for a smartphone is relevant for you today, then we have collected in the catalog all smartphones with support for 5G networks at any price and from different manufacturers.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Samsung Galaxy A12 screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is TFT-screen with diagonal 6.5″ and with a drop-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Samsung Galaxy A12 the case turned out very thick — 8.9 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 5 000 mAh. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Samsung Galaxy A12. The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 48 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 8 MP with a regular lens. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone received 8-core processor. If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Samsung Galaxy A12 received 3 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 6 GB of RAM.

And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 32 GB or 64 GB and even there is a version on 128 GB. Supported memory cards microSDXC.

Price for Samsung Galaxy A12: buy or not to buy?

$180 is the price for Samsung Galaxy A12 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very cool main camera that makes amazing photos and videos, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? Here is the case that it is in Samsung Galaxy A12 that a very powerful battery is installed. And, if you need a smartphone with a very long mode of operation from one battery charge, then we recommend looking at this model, or similar smartphones with a powerful battery.

Samsung Galaxy A12 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
