iQOO recently launched its flagship iQOO 12 series in India, introducing the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. This smartphone is gearing up for a head-to-head battle with rivals like the upcoming OnePlus 12, which also boasts the same processor and is anticipated to hit the Indian market in January 2024.

The iQOO 12 series initially made its debut in China in early November, presenting two models: the iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro. Notably, the Pro version will remain exclusive to the Chinese market, maintaining a tradition from previous generations.

Compared to its predecessor, the iQOO 12 features a fresh design. Its aluminum alloy frame is not only flat but also exudes a shiny finish. The camera module, now a rounded square, is larger than the rectangular island seen on the previous model. The Legend and Alpha color variants come with a glass rear panel, departing from the vegan leather finish found on the earlier version.

The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, manufactured using a 4nm process, and is coupled with the Adreno 750 GPU to handle graphics-intensive tasks. The iQOO 12 excels in keeping cool with its largest-ever VC Cooling System, a 40% improvement since the iQOO 11. This ensures optimal performance during demanding tasks. For gaming enthusiasts, the phone employs frame interpolation technology, boosting the game frame rate to an impressive 144 FPS.
