Samsung plans to renew its low-end mobile series very soon, and we already know the new member who is about to join the Galaxy M series catalog. This is the new Samsung Galaxy M12.
This device, which we did not know much about it until now, was confirmed by the famous source of leaks Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as OnLeaks. Thanks to him, we can have a first design preview of the new Galaxy M12.

According to the leaked information, the new Galaxy M12 will inherit some features from the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G, the current cheapest 5G mobile from Samsung.
In both cases, we find a 6.5-inch diagonal screen, surrounded by fairly narrow margins, although with a lower “chin” slightly more pronounced than in the more expensive models of the firm.
One important change this model will introduce is the side fingerprint reader into the device’s power button, a feature that the Galaxy A42 lacks because it includes the fingerprint reader into its display.
Based on the leaked information, we know that the body of the device will be finished in two tones; so its back has two different finishes, glossy and rough to give the device a unique look; which will differentiate it from the other low-end mobiles available on the market.
Also in its back, we find a camera system that would be formed by a total of four sensors, the details of which are unknown.
For now, that’s all we know about the Samsung Galaxy M12. We expect Samsung to launch it at some point early next year, likely along with other new models in this series or in the Galaxy A family, with which Samsung will shape its mobile catalog for 2021.
Canalys: Samsung has kept its domain in the smartphone market
The year 2020 has been rough thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are a lot of segments in the industry suffering from the pandemic consequences. However, we can say that the smartphone market has taken the biggest hit in the early months of 2020. So far in Q1 and Q2 2020 most companies couldn’t achieve expressive results. However, this quite improved during Q3 2020. After all, in the three months period that starts in July and ends in September most governments have lifted lockdown restrictions and costumers were able to resume their consuming schedule. Of course, we can only see the start of a recovcery as the results are still worse than that of Q3 2019. According to Canalys, 348 million smartphones were shipped between July 1 and September 30 and Samsung has kept its domain.
