- It seems that Samsung’s Galaxy M12 has appeared in leaked images.
- The budget phone will not have many unnecessary decorations, but may include a giant 7000 mAh battery.
- It is reported that it should start in early 2021.
Samsung’s Galaxy M12 battery-oriented phone can exist simply as a rumor and an empty case. OnLeaks and Voice have published what they think are exact design renderings for the M12, stating exactly what will be housed, which claims a 7000mAh battery.
The leak seems to confirm the reports that this is a seamless design with a plastic rear case, a flat 6.5-inch screen, a fingerprint sensor in the power button and a slot for the selfie camera. The two-tone coating helps distinguish the M12 from the Galaxy A42 5G. The distinctive feature is a rectangular rear camera, although we would not expect it to compete with better camera phones.

In other words, Samsung will introduce the Galaxy M12 based on its longevity, not its style. Not that buyers are likely to complain if the reports are accurate. A 7000 mAh battery will allow the Samsung phone to run for days along with a charge. This could be crucial in countries with unreliable capacity, not to mention someone who is camping or otherwise expecting to be disconnected from the network for long periods.
It is uncertain what performance the device will offer. However, the Galaxy M series is aimed at budget users, and the M11 was a modest phone with a Snapdragon 450, three cameras and a 5000 mAh battery.
Samsung is reportedly about to launch the Galaxy M12 sometime in early 2021. This would not be your only option for a phone with a giant battery, including from Samsung – the Galaxy F41 already has a 6000 mAh battery. The added capacity can give the M12 an advantage in a crowded field and can undercut the prices of some competitors in the process.
