Samsung is bringing a new Galaxy smartphone to the UK this month, and it’s set to hit the market at a price that’s hard to believe considering how much technology is packed into this device. The brand new Galaxy M12 went on sale in India earlier this year. Now Samsung seems ready to make this handset available to its Galaxy fans in the UK.
For just £ 159, you can get a smartphone with a 6.5-inch Infinity V display with a 90 Hz high refresh rate panel for smooth scrolling and fast gaming – that’s only slightly slower than the 120 Hz The Galaxy S21’s screen that starts from £ 769. In fact, the iPhone 12 Pro, which starts at $ 999, only offers a 60 Hz refresh rate!
A cinema-style aspect ratio of 21: 9 for the Galaxy M12 ensures that films fill the entire display without black bars. Dolby Atmos support should help add extra realism to the audio. Thanks to the elongated 21: 9 screen, two apps can be run on top of each other at the same time. For example, you can keep streaming from YouTube while you’re typing an email.
Another premium feature on this budget phone is a quad rear camera that includes a 48-megapixel main snapper, plus an ultra-wide option for landscape photography and a macro lens for extreme close-ups.
A gigantic 5,000 mAh battery is hidden under the body, with which this device can easily be supplied with power all day and until late at night. When things get that tight, Samsung has built in Adaptive Fast Charging, which refills the battery in a flash.
You’ll also find a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, octa-core processor, and 64GB of storage that can be expanded to 1TB with a MicroSD card.
Speaking of the new M12, Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President of Samsung UK & Ireland, said: “Since its launch in 2019, the Samsung Galaxy M-Series has been designed with customer needs first. The newest product in this series, the Samsung Galaxy M12, offers exceptional features, including the incredible 5,000 mAh battery combined with adaptive fast charging technology for longer battery life. The Samsung Galaxy M12 will truly set the standard for a powerful experience in this price range. “
Samsung says the new M12 will be available in black, light blue and green from April 30th. Anyone who wants one can buy it for £ 159 from Amazon.de and Samsung.com.
