The Galaxy A04 – SM-A045F/DS – was certified by the NBTC a week ago, now its M-series counterpart has be sighted in the Geekbench database. The phone has a model number SM-M045F and the motherboard is listed as “m04”.
This leaves no doubt that this is the Samsung Galaxy M04. There was no “M03”, just a pair of M02 phones from the beginning of last year. These are not powerful phones, but they do run full-blooded Android.
In the case of the M04, it is Android 12 running on a Helio G35 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. This is a 12nm chip with 8x Cortex-A53 cores at up to 2.3GHz, a PowerVR GE83200 GPU and a built-in 4G modem.

This is the first Galaxy M04 leak, so we don’t quite know what to expect from the phone. In contrast, there have been plenty of leaks from the A04 series – there was the A04 at the Wi-Fi Alliance, the A04s renders and the A04 Core leak.
