From https://www.sammobile.com/news/galaxy-a12-january-2023-security-patch 

" Samsung launched the Galaxy A12 in November 2020 with Android 10 (One UI 2.0) onboard. The phone was promised two major Android OS updates, and Samsung has rolled out both new OS updates. The Galaxy A12 is currently running Android 12 (One UI 4.1.1). Although the phone is not eligible to get the Android 13 (One UI 5.0) update, it will keep getting security updates till 2025. "

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "

The A12 Nacho version became eligible for Android 13. Where did you get your device from?

Generally speaking all other versions are limited to Android 12 as @BandOfBrothers has advised.

There will be no further OS updates for the A12 I'm afraid although it will still get security updates for a little while longer.

Ok so should be a UK / EU version then.

Either way, Android 13 is the end of the journey with security updates for an extra year or so (which may come quarterly instead of monthly).

DS - Dual SIM
N - Nacho (I believe).

As above, you've reached the end of the line for OS updates.
