A few days ago, Samsung has officially announced two entry-level smartphones.

(Update, January 12: The Samsung Galaxy A02s and Samsung Galaxy A12 are priced from P6,990 [$145] in the Philippines!)

The Samsung Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s will come to Europe in the first quarter of 2021, with base price tags of €179 (around P10,306 or $214) and €150 (P8,636 or $179), respectively. However, the company stopped short of revealing the devices’ availability in other countries.

Now, we can finally say one of them — the A12 — will be released in the Philippines; we at Revü have spotted its support page on the Korean company’s local site. Unfortunately, we can’t see any user manual anywhere on the website, indicating that the phone’s launch won’t happen at any time soon. It could indeed be sold here in early 2021.

Spotted on Samsung’s Philippine website: the Samsung Galaxy A12, which has the model number SM-A125DF

Available in black, blue, white, and red colors, the Samsung Galaxy A12 features a 5,000mAh battery with support for 15 watts of fast charging, a 6.5-inch Infinity-V screen, and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. Its 48-megapixel, f/2.0 main camera is assisted by 5-megapixel, f/2.2 ultra-wide and 2-megapixel, f/2.4 macro and depth sensors. The selfie shooter, on the other hand, is 8 megapixels.

As expected, Samsung didn’t mention the budget unit’s processor, but it’s believed to be MediaTek’s Helio P35, which is mated to as much as 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage.

The A12’s predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy A11 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, went on sale in the Philippines in July 2020 for P7,490 ($156). Its suggested retail price is now down to P6,490 ($135). If the Samsung Galaxy A12 model with the same configuration will be offered locally, expect it to go for around the A11’s original SRP.
