Samsung Galaxy M12 Overview
Samsung Galaxy M12 has the exact same design as the Galaxy A12. It uses plastic rear with a plastic frame and there’s a quad-camera setup on the back.
Samsung Galaxy M12 Design
The front is home to the infinity-V display and the fingerprint is on the side.
One of the drastic changes comes in terms of display. Samsung Galaxy M12 has a 6.5 inches PLS IPS HD+ 90Hz panel. It’s the first Samsung budget phone with a high refresh rate panel.
Samsung Galaxy M12 Display
With a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels, it has a pixel density of 270ppi.
Underneath, the device is powered by an Exynos 850 chipset instead of the Helio P35 used on the A12.
Exynos 850 is made in an 8nm process and has Octa-core (4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU along with Mali-G52 GPU. This chipset was used on the Samsung Galaxy A21s.
Exynos 850 chipset
Exynos 850 is paired with 4GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage.
Exynos 850 is not a powerful chipset and it would have been better if Samsung had opted for Helio G80 or G85 chipsets for better performance.
Samsung M12 comes with a quad-camera setup with a 48MP Samsung GM2 sensor, a 5MP ultrawide angle sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor.
Samsung M12 Camera
On the front, it has an 8MP selfie camera. It can capture up to 1080p 30 fps videos from both front and rear cameras.

Furthermore, the M12 will run on One UI 3.1 on top of Android 11.

Samsung M12 Price in Nepal and Availability
Samsung Galaxy M12 will go on sale in India starting 18th March. However, there’s no news about the launch date of M12 in Nepal. But it should arrive soon in Nepal.
Given its price in India, we expect the Samsung M12 price in Nepal to be around Rs. 19,000 for the base variant.
Samsung M12 is one of the few budget phones to offer a high refresh rate screen. Along with that, it is equipped with a good quad-camera setup and a huge 6000mAh battery. The only cause for concern is the Exynos 850 chipset, else it is a fine budget phone from Samsung.
