The device is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, combined with 16GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. So we will be seeing top-notch performance and ample storage space on the smartphone.
In the camera department, the iQOO 12 doesn’t disappoint. It comes with a 50MP primary camera supported by OIS, 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and 64MP telephoto camera.
Furthermore, the smartphone will have a 5,000mAh battery with 120W fast charging. It also includes an in-display fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, NFC, 5G connectivity, and a dual-SIM card slot, making the iQOO 12 a well-rounded device in terms of specifications and capabilities.
