    Samsung Galaxy M12 last month appeared in leaked renders and a 360-degree video. Published by OnLeaks, Samsung Galaxy M12 is seen sporting a dual-tone textured finish on the back. It also has a square camera module with multiple camera sensors. The LED flash sits outside the camera array. The phone appears to be similar to the Galaxy A42 5G phone.


    Samsung Galaxy M12 is rumoured to come with in-house Exynos 850 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The phone is said to run on a 6,000mAh battery. Interestingly enough, older rumours had claimed the phone would offer a larger 7,000mAh battery. On the software front, it will run on Android 11 out-of-the-box.


    The upcoming smartphone is said to come with a quad-camera setup. The configuration will reportedly feature a 48-megapixel, 8-megapixel, and 5-megapixel sensor on the back. For selfies, it could have a 16-megapixel sensor.


    There is no word on the display size of the phone yet. Rumours, however, suggest the phone will have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It is also said to come with USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Bluetooth 5.0.
