Galaxy F12 is powered by Exynos 850, while Galaxy F02s has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. Samsung says it is using fast LPDDR4X RAM in both phones.
For photography, F12 comes with quad rear cameras, which is a combination of 48MP main (Samsung ISOCELL GM2 sensor), 5MP ultra-wide-angle and two other 2MP cameras, one for depth and another for macros. On the front, it has an 8MP camera. The F02s has three cameras on the rear including a 13MP main, 2MP depth and 2MP macro camera. The phone has a 5MP front camera.
