You might feel that these prices are higher than the competition in India. However, we believe that if these two phones arrive in India, they will certainly be much more affordable because phones are usually more expensive in Europe.

Starting with the Galaxy A12, this is considered the successor of the Galaxy A11 that Samsung introduced in March, bringing some significant improvements in the camera and battery capacity.
