Starting Price

The iQOO 12 was launched in China last month with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, and today, the phone was launched in India. This makes it the first phone in India with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SOC. The same happened earlier this year when the iQOO 11 was launched in India as the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone.

iQOO phones are known for their price-to-performance ratio, and with the iQOO 12, the company took it to the next level. The best way to understand this is by comparing the iQOO 11 & 12 starting prices in India. The iQOO 11 was launched at ₹59,999, while the 12 starts at ₹52,999! On top of that, after bank offers, the start price goes as low as ₹49,999. This is a very aggressive price for a phone with the most powerful Qualcomm chip.
