THE Samsung has launched Galaxy A12 It comes from Galaxy A02s on the international market this Tuesday (24th). The mobile phone will be the first member of the Galaxy A 2021 series and will arrive in Europe in January as a low-cost option for those looking for a large battery capacity.
5,000 mAh battery and 6.5 inch screen
In general, the two smartphones both have 5,000 mAh batteries, representing a leap over both the A11 and A01, the predecessors of the Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s. Both have 15 W charging.
The display is similar: 6.5 inches with HD + resolution, which can’t bring out the best in the world’s clarity, but is suitable for input devices.
Galaxy A12 has 4 cameras and up to 128 GB
As an upgrade over the A11, the Galaxy A12 has a set of four cameras on the back, consisting of a macro lens, an ultra-wide, and a depth sensor, to aid in portrait mode. The technical parameters are as follows:
- 48-megapixel primary sensor (f / 2.0);
- 5 MP sensor (f / 2.2) (ultra-wide lens);
- 2 MP depth sensor (f / 2.4)
- 2 MP sensor (f / 2.4) (macro).
At the front, the camera has an 8 MP sensor with f / 2.2 lens aperture, for selfies – the same configuration as the previous generation.
Samsung opted for an octa-core processor up to 2.3 GHz (although it did not mention which model it was, it is likely to be an intermediary of the Helio P35 from MediaTek). This chip will work together with 3 GB RAM, 4 GB or 6 GB, depending on the selected version.
Those who typically download a lot of heavy apps and store photos and videos on their smartphones can count on up to 128 GB of internal storage. There will also be a version with 64 GB of memory and another with 32 GB.
The Galaxy A12 has a digital reader on the side and is announced in black, blue, white, and red.
Galaxy A02s does not have a fingerprint reader
With an octa-core processor up to 1.8 GHz (possibly Snapdragon 450), Galaxy A02s is a more basic model, suitable for users who do not have a need. It doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor and will only be available in a version with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, expandable up to 1 TB via a microSD card. The color options are black and white.
The Galaxy A02s’ rear camera is triple, with a 13-megapixel primary sensor, a macro lens, and a depth sensor (both with 2 MP). For selfies, the smartphone has a 5MP front-facing sensor, which won’t do more than the basics.
Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s pricing and availability
Galaxy A12 is expected to launch in January 2021 in Europe. The smartphone will be priced at 179 euros for the 64 GB version (Rs 1,144 at direct exchange, tax free and at the exchange rate of the day) and 199 euros (Rs 1,272) for the 128 GB version. There is no information on the price of the option with 32 GB.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A02s will be sold from February for 150 euros (about R $ 959, converted directly, tax excluded).
Samsung has yet to reveal its plans for a smartphone arrival in Brazil. Therefore, it is still necessary to wait for the launch date and selling price of the models on the national market.
