An input range that surprises

Although the brand surprises with those 90 Hz refresh rate, making it the first Samsung in this market segment to have such a refresh rate.

In the back of the phone, we find four cameras: the main sensor of 48 Mpx, an ultra-wide-angle of 5 Mpx, a depth sensor of 2 Mpx, and a macro of 2 Mpx. It is a combination of cameras more common in the mid-range, but it will allow users to take good photos. Next to them, we find a front sensor of 8 Mpx.

The battery is another of the strengths of this Galaxy M12, with its 6,000 mAh capacity. It goes up from the previous generation, so it will give users greater autonomy. Also, we find 15W fast charging on it. The processor chosen for this model is Exynos 850, manufactured in 8 nm.

The fingerprint sensor is located on one side of the phone, for quick and convenient unlocking at all times. Android 11 is the standard operating system on it, along with One UI 3.1 as a customization layer.
