To commemorate its fourth anniversary in India, iQOO has released a special “anniversary edition” of the iQOO 12. The limited edition model, which iQOO refers it as Desert Red, is red in colour and will be on sale on April 9 at 12 PM. The price is Rs 52,999 for 12GB/256GB and Rs 57,999 for 16GB/512GB, the same as the current alpha and legend variants.

In contrast to the glass-backed Alpha and Legend editions, the red iQOO 12 variation sports a vegan leather finish. Just so you know, there are more “red” phones in iQOO’s portfolio as of right now. Additionally, iQOO offers the somewhat less expensive iQOO Neo 9 Pro, which has an eye-catching dual-tone red and white finish. As a flagship device, the iQOO 12 faces competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S24 and OnePlus 12.

iQOO 12: Features & Specifics

The 6.78-inch LTPO AMOLED display on the iQOO 12 features a refresh rate of 144Hz and a resolution of 1.5K (2800x1260p). Peak brightness of the panel is 1400 nits in a sunny outdoor setting and up to 3000 nits when HDR material is being played. You get an in-screen fingerprint reader for biometrics and 2160Hz PWM dimming.

A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU with up to 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM and up to 512GB of UFS4.0 storage powers the iQOO 12. Funtouch OS 14, which is based on Android 14, is in charge and promises three years of major OS updates and four years of security updates.

With two 50-megapixel and 64-megapixel sensors positioned behind a 23-mm wide lens (optical image stabilisation), a 150-degree ultrawide lens, and a 70-mm periscope-style telephoto lens (which offers 3x optical and up to 100x digital zoom), the iQOO 12 boasts a triple camera system. There is a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

A 5,000mAh battery with 120W rapid wired charging completes the set.
