The Galaxy M12 debuted in Vietnam all the way back in February but availability has so far been limited to the company’s offline stores. Soon enough though, customers in Vietnam will have the option of buying the Galaxy M12 online from Shopee.
Samsung Vietnam has revealed the online launch details earlier today and confirmed that the Galaxy M12 will be available from Shopee in two configurations. The entry-level model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage will be released in two color options: black and green. Similarly, the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will also be released in two colors: black and blue.
Prospective buyers are looking at a suggested retail price of 3,490,000 VND ($151) for the model with 3GB of RAM. Those who may want to purchase the 4GB variant will have to pay 3,890,000 VND or the rough equivalent of $168.
The Galaxy M12 will be available in Vietnam from Shopee’s e-commerce website starting May 5. Samsung Vietnam is also offering a 200,000 VND ($9) discount and a free phone case for early buyers. Meanwhile, the company has paired the 4GB / 64GB Galaxy M12 with an extended Samsung Care+ warranty of 24 months.
As to whether or not the Galaxy M12 is worth it, well, it’s a surprisingly good budget phone with a 90Hz refresh rate display. Nope, that’s not a typo. The Galaxy M12 is Samsung’s most affordable smartphone with a high refresh rate display to date. You can read more about it in our review linked below.
