Samsung is gearing up for the launch of a new Galaxy M-series smartphone called Galaxy M12. The company is yet to announce the official launch of its budget smartphone. However, Samsung Galaxy M12 renders have been leaked by notable tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, popularly known as OnLeaks. The tipster has uploaded renders of the Galaxy M12, revealing its design and specifications. OnLeaks also mentioned that Samsung will launch the Galaxy M12 in early 2021. However, the exact launch date of the device is unknown at the moment. While we wait for the official confirmation, let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy M12 specifications, design, features, and other details.
Samsung Galaxy M12 Design Renders Leaked Ahead of Official Launch
Samsung Galaxy M12 looks fairly identical to the recently-launched Galaxy A42 5G. While the A42 hasn’t made it is way to India yet, we can expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy M12 soon in India.
According to OnLeaks, Samsung Galaxy M12 will launch in early 2021. Being a budget-centric device, the Galaxy M12 comes in a plastic unibody rear cover. This back panel has a unique dual-textured design with a stripped upper section and a smooth glossy lower section.
The rear panel has a square-shaped camera module, which looks more-or-less like the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5. However, there are four camera sensors inside the camera module of the Samsung Galaxy M12. The LED flash is located below the camera sensors outside the module.
At the front, there is a 6.5-inch flat screen with a waterdrop notch on top for the front camera. Samsung has opted for an angled Infinity-V notch instead of a curved Infinity-U notch. Although the bezels are fairly narrow, the chin is considerably thick on the Galaxy M12.
The power button doubles up as a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. This could mean that the Galaxy M12 would feature an IPS LCD instead of an AMOLED panel. The volume buttons are placed above the power button on the right edge.
At the bottom edge, there is a USB Type-C port sandwiched between the 3.5mm headphone jack and the speaker grille.
Galaxy M12’s dimensions are 163.9 x 75.9 x 8.9mm.
There is no word from Samsung on the launch date of the Galaxy M12. We will share more details about the upcoming Galaxy M-series device as and when more details are available.
