Samsung Galaxy A12 (64GB + 4GB) – Specifications – Price in Pakistan

Galaxy A12

It’s 2021, and we already have a trio of top Samsung S21 phones to review. At the Galaxy end of the spectrum, Samsung Galaxy A12 (12, not 21) is an entry-level phone designed to offer the Samsung experience on a budget.

Samsung Galaxy A12 (64GB + 4GB)

Announced late last year and available from January, the Galaxy A12 isn’t Samsung’s cheapest phone – the Galaxy M02 takes that title. Samsung’s name is a bit sloppy in the lower tier. Which can confuse what is between the A and M series, but the A12 sits below the M12 and above the M02s. Not all of these models are available globally, so you may or may not get the best Samsung in your neck of the woods.

The Galaxy A12 available here is equipped with a 6.5-inch screen, and it’s easy to see the consequences of budget constraints. This is one of the few LCDs in the OLED-dominated Galaxy lineup, and it is on the low side of the average for a diagonal resolution of 720p. This is a combination of size, technology and resolution for this segment, so the A12 is not equipped.

The Mediatek Helio P35 does the math inside the A12, and it’s not a standalone device. Still. It’s quite adequate for the price point – you get an octa-core CPU. And the chip is built on a 12nm fabrication process, so it should be powerful and economical at the same time.

The quad-camera setup on the back really makes a strong case for the Galaxy A12 in the market. While the usefulness of the two 2MP modules is debatable (one for depth data, the other for macro), the main 48MP and 5MP ultra-wide cameras make a tandem that is hard to find. The 8MP rear camera completes the picture in the photography department.

The only thing that matters is that the Galaxy A12 is powered by a 5,000mAh battery, and it’s an entry-level 12nm chipset with as much battery as possible for a 6.5-inch 720p display. We expect good numbers for battery life.

The Galaxy A12 comes in a simple packaging that resembles a phone with a simple cardboard box inside the sleeve. A few essentials – you get a 15W adapter and a USB-C cable, and that’s it.


The Galaxy A12 is mostly made of plastic – a nice and attractive plastic. It’s not a back panel and structural type – there’s no exposed ‘frame’. Conversely, the back cover is also a one-piece construction that wraps around the phone.

The back part is divided into three parts and the larger part faces the diagonal stripe structure. We wouldn’t say it improves grip, but it doesn’t hurt either. It’s a win-win though.

In the next quarter, the Samsung logo added some regulatory cues, the latter in less printed form, thankfully.

Back at the top, there’s an island of four cameras that don’t match the flash – housed in a camera cluster. I don’t feel like saying 2MP macro inside the module is a bad use of space, but 2MP macro inside the module is a bad use of space. The marketing department may not agree.

On the front is a small Infinity-V display for the selfie camera. The invisible part above is where the headphone output is.

Around the screen are dimensional bezels. This isn’t a premium phone, so expect a little extra black bezel around it. The chin, in particular, is a bit clumsy, but it matches rivals in the class like the Poco M3 or the Realme 7i. However, we will say that the Galaxy A12 doesn’t look old or cheap because of its finish.

We are not big fans of the display cover; However, it is among those who are more prone to accumulating wages that they have recently been employed. Of course, we often run flagship phones, and there’s nothing an oleophobic coating glass screen protector can’t fix.

As for the glass itself, Samsung didn’t say anything about the type used in the A12, and Corning didn’t mention it in its database.

Moving around the edges of the phone, we find the fingerprint reader / power button on the right side. The location is just above the midpoint, “average” is a bit high for the left index finger, but a little adjustment gets you there. An average of fifty one has no problem with his right thumb.



The volume rocker above the fingerprint reader is a little hard to reach, but it’s hard to screw up.

On the opposite side of the A12, you will find the SIM slot. Our favorite is the one that lets you use two nano SIMs and a microSD card at the same time.

At the bottom of the Galaxy A12 you will find a USB-C port – thankfully replaced by microUSB in all Samsung models. But the A02 and M02 models are the cheapest.
