If you’ve been waiting for a Samsung phone that covers the basics at a price that won’t make you cry, the new Galaxy A12 might fit the bill. 

The phone has a 6.5-inch, HD+ display with a V-shaped notch in the middle, a quad 48/5/2/2-megapixel camera, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.

It also features a 5,000mAh battery. Last year’s Galaxy A11 only had a triple rear camera and a 4,000mAh battery, so this is a pretty big upgrade. 

The phone has an octa-core chip (Samsung doesn’t say which one), and 3/4/6GB of RAM, and 32/64/128GB of storage, depending on the configuration you choose.

Finally, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the side, and a microSD card slot. The Galaxy A12 will be available in black, white, blue, and red. 

Those specs are decent, but the killer feature here is the price, which is low for a Samsung Galaxy device: 179 EUR ($212) for the 64GB variant, and 199 EUR ($236) for the version with 128GB of storage. No word on pricing for the 32GB variant, though. The phone will launch in Europe in January 2021.

If that’s too pricey for you, Samsung launched an even cheaper device, albeit with far weaker specs. The Samsung Galaxy A02s has a similar 6.5-inch HD+ display with a V-shaped notch and an octa-core processor. It also has a triple 13/2/2-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 5,000mAh battery. There’s no fingerprint sensor on this one, but it does have a microSD card. 

The Samsung Galaxy A02s is coming in February 2021, in black and white only, with a price tag of 150 EUR ($179).
