Samsung will unveil the Galaxy F12 and the Galaxy F02s today, April 5, in India at 12pm (noon) through a virtual event that will be livestreamed on Samsung India’s YouTube channel.

Samsung Galaxy F12 specifications
Samsung Galaxy F12, as per the company website and the dedicated Flipkart page, will feature a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V Display which means it has a V-shaped notch for the selfie camera. The display supports 90Hz refresh rate. The phone is powered by a massive 6,000mAh battery that will last you “the whole day and more.” The Galaxy G12 packs a quad rear camera setup that includes a 48-megapixel GM2 sensor that uses Isocell Plus technology.
The phone was allegedly spotted in a Geekbench listing with 4GB RAM, running Android 11. This will likely be one of the RAM variants of the Galaxy F12.
Samsung Galaxy F02s specifications
Samsung has also shared some of the specifications for the Galaxy F02s. The phone packs a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V Display as well but it doesn’t seem to have a high refresh rate. It is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 450 SoC. There are three camera sensors on the back headlined by a 13-megapixel primary sensor. The phone is backed by a 5,000mAh battery.
An alleged Google Play Console listing for the phone from early last month suggested the Galaxy F02s will come with a 720×1,600 pixels display, Android 10, and have 4GB of RAM. The phone is also believed to be a rebranded Galaxy M02s that launched in India early in January this year. It was also tipped last month that the Galaxy F02s could cost Rs 8,999 for the 3GB + 32GB storage variant and Rs. 9,999 for the 4GB + 64GB storage model.
