It will be difficult for us to forget the last name of the new phone that Samsung has put into circulation and which becomes a minor modification of an existing model, its entry-level A12. We are talking about the new Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho, as is, which begins its European marketing from Russia without being clear on the rest of its international plans.

The new phone is very similar to the previous one, so much so that there is only a slight change in its memory structure (they no longer reach 6 GB of RAM) and in its processor. Samsung replaces MediaTek with the homemade Exynos and launches a new model that starts, at the current exchange rate, from just under 140 euros.

A Galaxy A12 with some changes

The Galaxy A12 launched in November 2020 undergoes minor changes that make its screen stay, so we repeat with the LCD panel. Also with the 6.6 inches diagonal, with its 20: 9 ratio and its HD + resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. The device’s front camera, an 8-megapixel camera, is located in the notch that crowns the teardrop-shaped slab.

As for the processor, now there is no Helio from Mediatek here but an Exynos 850 which is accompanied by two versions of RAM and three of internal space which give rise to three variants: 3GB / 32GB, 4GB / 64GB and 4GB / 128GB. All have a microSD with a capacity of up to 1TB. The phone arrives, by the way, with 5,000mAh of battery and 15W of fast charging.

The new Galaxy A12 Nacho has four cameras on the back that repeat settings. So we have 48 megapixels for the main one, 5 megapixels for the super wide angle, 2 megapixels for the macro and another 2 megapixels for the depth readings. The A12 Nacho arrives with Android 11 running One UI 3.1.

On top of all this, the new Samsung phone has 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a USB Type-C port, and the fingerprint reader is hidden on the side of the device. It can be ours in blue and black, red and white. Although the phone was presented in three different options (3/32, 4/64, 4/128), we only know the price for Russia of the first two. The Galaxy A12 Nacho sets foot in the country at 11,990 and 13,990 rubles, which translates to around 139 and 162 euros at the current exchange rate.
