Back in the last year, Samsung has pretty much revolutionized its mid-range and low-end lineups of smartphones with the very competitive Galaxy A and Galaxy M families. After a very successful year, the company now is moving to diversify its range and extend the offer of low-end handsets. Now, the company is moving forward to release the Galaxy A12 smartphones. Today, the new device appeared with model number SM-A12F on NFC certification. It confirms the presence of NFC technology, which surely is a plus on a device that will sit under the low-end category.
Galaxy A12 alleged specifications
The Galaxy A12 has received the NFC certification on October 28. The certification made live on the website earlier today. The Galaxy A12, apparently, will come with 64GB of Internal Storage. Moreover, it will likely come with a triple-camera setup on the rear side. This is a very cool addition, after all, the original Galaxy A10 started with a single camera on the back. The NFC surely is a neat addition as the device will likely come with cashless payment support. We believe that the phone has a rear-side fingerprint scanner and an LCD panel. While older models had an HD+ panel, we wouldn’t be surprised to see an FHD+ panel this time around. The battery will also be decent, not below 4,000mAh and we also expect at least 15W fast-charging.
According to rumors, the device will come in Black, Red, and White colorways. The handset will be a successor to the Galaxy A11 which is one of the most affordable devices in the Galaxy A-series. We’re not taking the super-budget Galaxy A0-series in consideration. While the Galaxy A11 skipped the Indian market, we’ll probably see the Galaxy A12 landing in the subcontinent. The timing is perfect, after all, Samsung has surpassed Xiaomi during Q3 2020 and became the smartphone market leader there. The Korean firm will do everything to keep this margin during Q4 2020.
Considering the number of leaks popping out and certifications that the device is passing through, we believe that the device will reach the market before the end of the year. Samsung might be busy with the release of the Galaxy S21 series that is likely to happen earlier than usual, but it will probably find time on its schedule to release the new budget smartphone.
