The iQOO 12 has already been launched for the Chinese market and is scheduled to make its debut in India on December 12. A perfect 12 out of 12, iQOO!
Today, the price for the upcoming device in India has been leaked by two usually reliable sources, and they seem to confirm each other by saying that the iQOO 12 will start at around or below INR 55,000.
For what it’s worth, a photo claiming to show the label on the box says INR 5x,999, and 55,000 (or a tiny bit less) is definitely in that range. Apparently, the MRP will be INR 56,999. All this is, of course, for the base variant, which in this case will be very capable, with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
There will also be one with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. As always, expect to see several bank offers as well, further reducing the launch price. The iQOO 12 will ship with Android 14 out of the box – this has already been officially confirmed. Furthermore, the device will get three major Android updates and four years of security fixes.
The iQOO 12 will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC at the helm, a 50 MP main camera, a 50 MP ultra-wide, and a 64 MP telephoto shooter. If it’s identical to the Chinese model, then expect it to have a 6.78-inch 144 Hz AMOLED display with a peak brightness of 3,000 nits, a 16 MP selfie snapper, and also support for 120W fast wired charging.
