Today the price for the upcoming device in India has been leaked by two usually reliable sources. They both seem to corroborate each other, saying that the iQOO 12 will start at around or under INR 55,000.
For what it's worth, a picture claimed 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 of these are, of course, for the base variant - which in this case will be plenty capable, coming with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
There will also be one with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. As always, expect to see various bank offers too, further reducing the launch price. The iQOO 12 will ship with Android 14 out of the box - this has been confirmed officially already. Furthermore, the device will get three major Android updates and four years of security patches.
The iQOO 12 will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC at the helm, a 50 MP main camera, a 50 MP ultrawide, 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 screen with 3,000-nit peak brightness, a 16 MP selfie snapper, and support for 120W fast wired charging too.
Only processor doesn't work in india. Success of s23 ultra and vivo x90 shows people pay for handy best camera. Unless xiomi and iqoo realise this their top ends always ends flop
