The iQOO 12 series is expected to launch later this year and is rumored to include two models, the iQOO 12 and the iQOO 12 Pro. Speculations about the possible addition of a telephoto sensor to the iQOO flagship phone have been going on for some time. Now, a recent leak has emerged, providing additional information on the iQOO 12 series.
iQOO 12 series camera specifications (Rumoured)
According to a tip from DigitalChatStation, the upcoming iQOO 12 series is expected to feature some significant camera upgrades. Among these upgrades, a highlight is the inclusion of a 64MP OmniVision 64B telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom and optical image stabilization (OIS).
Apart from this telephoto sensor, the iQOO 12 series is rumored to include a 50MP OmniVision OV50H sensor, equipped with OIS, and a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL JN1 sensor for ultra-wide-angle shots. Notably, the iQOO series does not feature a telephoto camera since the iQOO 5 Pro 5G, which had an 8MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom.
The addition of a telephoto sensor coupled with the rumored new Vivo V3 ISP (Image Signal Processor) has the potential to deliver the flagship-level camera experience that the iQOO numbered series has been aiming for. These camera enhancements could be a significant step forward for the iQOO smartphone in terms of photography capabilities.
iQOO 12 Specifications (Expected)
Earlier reports suggest that the iQOO 12 is set to offer some exciting features. Expected specifications include a fast 144Hz refresh rate and a 2K display with smooth flat edges. Its Pro variant may feature a Samsung E7 AMOLED display with the same impressive 144Hz refresh rate.
Under the hood, both the iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro are expected to be powered by the formidable Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. These smartphones may offer up to 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, although without the option of further expansion.
When it comes to charging, the iQOO 12 is rumored to support fast 100W charging, while the Pro version could take it up a notch with an astonishing 200W charging capacity. However, the exact battery size has not been disclosed at this time.
Software-wise, the iQOO 12 series is likely to run on Android 14 OS with a customized Origin OS 4.0 skin, which promises an unparalleled user experience. Additionally, an interesting Vivo V3 imaging chipset can be integrated into these devices to enhance photography capabilities.
Both the iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro are expected to feature 5G connectivity support for faster data speeds as well as an in-display fingerprint sensor for better security. The inclusion of a sturdy metal frame ensures durability and premium build quality.
