Samsung has relaunched the Galaxy A12 in Europe with an updated chipset. This time, it’s called the Galaxy A12 Nacho and it features the Exynos 850 instead of the Helio P35 SoC. Otherwise, the phone is mostly the same as the original.

Samsung Galaxy A12 Launched Again With a Different Chipset

The display is a 6.5-inch LCD with a 720p resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. It has thick surrounding bezels, a waterdrop notch selfie camera, and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The rear panel features a dual-tone design.

Samsung has replaced the MediaTek Helio P35 chip with its own Exynos 850. This is paired with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage and there is also a microSD card slot for expansion. It runs Android 11 out of the box with One UI 3.1 on top.

The quad-camera setup on the back includes a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP ultrawide lens, and a duo of 2MP cameras for depth sensing and macro shots. The waterdrop notch front camera is an 8MP snapper. The 5,000 mAh battery has 15W fast charging support.

The Samsung Galaxy A12 Nacho will be available for $190 in Blue, Black, Red, and White color options.
