Samsung is reportedly working on its brand new mid-range smartphone – the Samsung Galaxy M12. With this news, the rumor mill has been in full swing and there has been wide speculation on the specs, features, and launch date of the phone. Recently, the Galaxy M12 was spotted on the Geekbench database site, dropping huge clues as to what the key specifications and features will be.

Geekbench listing reveals Galaxy M12’s performance scores
The Samsung Galaxy M12 was recently seen on the Geekbench listing with the model number SM-M127F. The device managed to score 178 in the single-core test while in the multi-core test it got 1025. The smartphone will be powered by the Exynos 850 SoC and come with 3GB of RAM. However, it is expected that the device will come in more RAM variants too. In terms of software, the Galaxy M12 comes with the latest Android 11 OS out of the box.
The Galaxy M12 would be the successor to the Galaxy M11, released in India earlier this year. Moreover, the renders reveal that the Galaxy M12 looks similar to the recently released Galaxy A42 5G except for the back panel coming with a different texture and the fingerprint sensor placement.

In the past, the device has been spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, and the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification platforms.
Moreover, earlier render leaks of the Samsung Galaxy M12 revealed that the device could feature a 6.5-inch or 6.7-inch Infinity-V display. The power button will be doubling up as the handset’s fingerprint scanner. The device will be receiving a dual-tone finish along with a squarish quad-camera setup at the rear (13MP+5MP+2MP+2MP) and the LED flash placed below the camera module.
The phone will come with dimensions 63.9 x 75.9 x 8.99mm and pack a massive 7,000mAh battery. The right side will feature the volume rocker and power buttons and towards the bottom, there will be a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, and a single speaker grille.
The device is expected to launch during the first quarter of 2021 though the exact launch date isn’t known yet.
