Samsung officially offers its cheap Galaxy M12. It's $150.


Samsung has launched a cheap new phone that could become one of the bestsellers of the year. It's the Galaxy M12, a device from the most expensive cell phone series, which features a high-refreshed display and a huge battery.

The phone already available on Samsung's website was initially launched in India, and although there is no data on availability in other regions, it is not unlikely to reach the rest of the country.

Bearing in mind that the price of the Galaxy M12 starts at only $150 on the stock exchange, we can't expect to find the latest specs in its class. However, the new phone contains many interesting details, which we will not find in any other device at this price.

This is the case for the screen because although it has a 6.5-inch "standard" diagonal and uses LCD technology, it has an update rate of 90 Hz, which is an additional feature highly regarded in this price range as many phones do not provide this experience at this price.

The body of the phone is plastic and is not completely thin. The salient point is that it has a huge battery capacity of 6,000 mAh, which is more than enough to run the have for a few days without a problem.
