Samsung launches incredible £169 smartphone that looks as good as a £1,000 iPhone

SAMSUNG has unveiled a cheap and cheerful smartphone that costs £169.

Better yet, it's got a slick high-end design that looks just as good as your £1,000 Samsung, Huawei or iPhone.

The new Samsung Galaxy A12 is a "low-end" phone, priced at a tenth of top phone models.

But it doesn't skimp on specs at all.

For a start, you get a giant 6.5-inch HD+ screen – that's the same size as the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

And it's an all-screen design, with only a small "Infinity V" cut-out at the top to house the camera.

It comes in four colours, including black, white, red or blue.

Importantly, the Galaxy A12 has serious camera chops.

You get a very generous four-camera setup, which is impressive given the low price.

Most of the work is done by the 48-megapixel main camera, but this is supported by an ultra-wide lens, a depth lens, and a macro lens.

On the front, there's a 5-megapixel camera with an ultra-wide 123-degree angle of view that should work wonders for group selfies too.

The phone comes with a massive 5,000mAh battery that'll get you through a day of use comfortably.

And it supports 15W fast-charging so you can power back up quickly too.

Samsung's Galaxy A12 is powered by an eight-core processor and 4GB of RAM.

You'll also have 64GB of storage to enjoy through too, which should be enough for most people.

The phone runs on Google's Android operating system, which is slick and easy to use.

This means you get access to the enormous Google Play Store, with endless apps and games on offer.

It's a shockingly powerful and well-equipped phone given the low £169 price.

There's no support for speedy 5G internet, but you still get nippy 4G speeds regardless.
