Samsung Galaxy F12 Device Overview
The Samsung Galaxy F12 features a 6.5 inch IPS HD+ screen with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The USP of this device is that it a 90Hz display. Samsung skips out on the AMOLED technology but offers a higher-refresh-rate panel to its customers with the F12. Powering the device is Samsung’s very own Exynos 850 chip built on an 8nm manufacturing process. This is an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. The Mali-G52 handles all graphics-intensive tasks.
Coming to the cameras, we get a quad-camera setup at the rear and a single camera at the front for selfies. The rear setup comprises a 48MP primary sensor paired with an f/2.0 lens, a 5MP ultrawide sensor paired with an f/2.2 lens, a 2MP macro sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens, and a 2MP depth sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens. Moving to the front side, we see an 8MP sensor paired with an f/2.2 sensor. Samsung optimizes the camera a lot through software, so even with inferior hardware, we can expect some decent-looking pictures from this smartphone. In terms of video recording, though, both the front and rear setups are only capable of 1080p video recording.
The smartphone has two storage options: 64GB internal + 4GB RAM and 128GB + 4GB RAM. There is a dedicated MicroSD slot for storage expansion too. For communications, we have Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, FM radio, and USB USB Type-C 2.0. We get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, and proximity sensor in terms of sensors. Like other budget Samsung devices, the Galaxy F12 also comes with a 6000 mAh battery supporting 15W fast charging. The smartphone will be available in three color options: Sea Green, Sky Blue, and Celestial Black. It is priced at 10,999 INR for the base model.
