A few days back, a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone with model number SM-F127G was spotted under development. And, now according to the new report, the Samsung Galaxy M12 also comes with “SM-M127F / SM-F127G” model number on the back panel. Furthermore, the report also says that the device might launch as Galaxy M05 as they could spot M05 moniker. 

The Samsung Galaxy F series made its debut in India last month with the Galaxy F41. Although the series was entirely new the phone itself was water down version of the Galaxy M31 with slight changes. 

The new Galaxy M12/F12 live image shows a new design language. For starters, there is a new textured finish. Most of the M series devices currently offer a matte finish on a plastic/glassitic back. The camera layout also now seems to be getting revamped. The live images show that the Samsung Galaxy M12/F12 might come with a square camera module instead vertical module. Just below the camera module, there is a cutout for the flash. 

It looks like Samsung is going with the quad-camera setup with the mid-range devices. However, there is no cut-out for the fingerprint scanner which means Samsung might move to a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Apart from that, we can see that the 3.5mm headphone jack is being retained. 

And lastly, the device is said to offer a 6.7-inch punch-hole screen, a massive 7000mAh battery, just like we’ve seen on the Galaxy M51. Other details of the Galaxy M12/F12 is yet to be known.

A new report from 91mobiles also suggests that the upcoming Galaxy M12 might come with a unique dual-tone finish. The device is said to come with a textured finish on the top and glossy finish on the bottom. Apart from that, the quad-camera setup will stay on the top corner.
