Vivo IQOO 12 Series: Everything We Know About the Upcoming Smartphone


As a sub-brand to Vivo, IQOO has come a long way with its smartphones. These smartphones are more like gaming smartphones since they are built for performance. The company is well-known for packing its smartphones with top-notch specifications each year. This year’s 11 Pro featured some of the best technical specifications around. The IQOO 11 Pro actually pioneered the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and was one of the first smartphones to use Android 13. The company is already working on the next model and sources have given a sneak peak on some features that we may see in the 12 series.

Earlier this year, we heard some news about the upcoming iQOO 12 made by vivo. It was rumored to feature a special camera with a 64-megapixel Now, a person who’s known for telling us early information about phones confirmed it. So, the iQOO 12 does indeed have a 64-megapixel Telephoto lens. The main camera incorporates the OmniVision 64B sensor.

The next flagship from IQOO also has a number of interesting features that are worth discussing. Reliable sources such as GsmArena and Digital Chat Station have revealed most of these details.

The reports show that the IQOO 12 will have upgrade in almost all categories which include display, processor, memory, charging speed and many more. Let’s begin with the camera improvements.

IQOO 12 Camera Details IQOO 12

According to GsmArena, the main camera on the iQOO 12 is also from OmniVision, and it’s called the OV50H. This camera is really good, with 50 megapixels, which means it can take really clear pictures. It also has OIS to help with shaky hands. Another camera on the iQOO 12 is the ultrawide-angle camera. This one has 50 megapixels as well, and it uses a Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor. While the technical terms may be overwhelming, rest assured that these cameras are capable of capturing stunning images.

Camera History of the IQOO Smartphone

Leakster, Digital Chat Station spoke about all this, and they’re usually right about these things. So, it’s likely that what they’re saying is true. The iQOO 12 doesn’t use a periscope lens for zooming like some other phones do. The last time the company used a periscope lens was six phones ago with the iQOO 5 Pro 5G, which had an 8-megapixel camera for 5x zoom. But the new iQOO 12 doesn’t need a periscope lens because it has a 64-megapixel camera with OIS. This is actually a big improvement because the last iQOO phone, the iQOO 11 Pro, didn’t have OIS.

IQOO 12 Chipset

The iQoo 12 is set to be the first smartphone in India to feature the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, as per information shared by tipster Mukul Sharma. This chipset is expected to power flagship devices from various manufacturers in the upcoming year, including Xiaomi, OnePlus, and Samsung.

The iQoo 12 is expected to be launched in India around the end of November or in December, according to the information shared by Mukul Sharma. This suggests that iQoo may once again be the first to introduce a smartphone featuring Qualcomm’s flagship chipset in India.

GsmArena has already shared a couple of features of the upcoming smartphone which we will compare with the IQOO 11 Pro. This short comparison will help potential buyers determine if the IQOO 12 Pro would be worth the upgrade.


A report on GsmArena suggests that the IQOO 12 will feature an OmniVision 0V50H sensor for the main camera. This sensor will also be a 50MP sensor with 1.2µm pixels. It is also tipped to feature a 64MP Telephoto lens as stated earlier. In all, the IQOO 12 will feature four rear camera lenses. On the other hand, the IQOO 11Pro features a 50MP main camera which is accompanied by a 50MP Telephoto lens and an ultrawide sensor. This makes it three lenses instead of four on the upcoming successor.


On the display side, Digital Chat Station has also revealed some notable details. According to him, the IQOO 12 will feature a 2K E7 OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate. Even though the IQOO 11 Pro’s display is slightly behind in terms of resolution, it still featured a 144Hz refresh rate.

These specifications makes it clear that the IQOO 12 will be a step further in almost all categories as far as the 11 Pro is concerned. The IQOO 12 will be a reasonable upgrade for any user who wishes to upgrade without breaking the bank.
