Infinix is at it again with their newest, more premium versions of the Note 12 lineup, which are the Note 12 (G96), and the Note 12 VIP. We predicted it would be a flagship but, err it seems to be a midranger.
The Note 12 VIP which was leaked earlier this month, features a 6.7″ super light AMOLED display which has a 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution and 360Hz of touch sampling rate.
The device is powered by the Mediatek Helio G96 which is really a bummer cause i’d have prefered a dimensity chip to one from the G-series. it is backed up by 8GB of RAM which can be extended to 13GB using virtual RAM.
The charging speed of this device steals the spotlight as the Infinix Note 12 VIP supports 120W Hyper Charge making it the third phone to feature such technology. You will get 50% in 5 mins, and full charge in 17 mins.
You get a 4,500 mAh battery inside, and according to Infinix, the Note 12 VIP’s battery will retain 85% of its capacity after 800 charge cycles.
The battery is guided by 103 protection features inside the phone and charger, which also includes 18 temperature sensors inside the phone.
Infinix boasts of a 108 MP “cinemagic” main camera, a 13 MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a depth lens with unknown megapixel count. it also has quad LED lights and Laser Dectection Auto Focus. It’s selfie shooter is a 16 MP one.
This device launches with Android 12 and XOS 10.6. There is also a new XOS Ai assistant which goes by the name FOLAX, as seen on the official website.
Infinix Note 12 (G96)
The Note 12 (G96) is a step down from the Note 12 VIP but still carry the same chipset, hence the name “G96”. This one doesn’t have a high refresh rate but sports the same 6.7” FHD+ AMOLED display.
The camera and charging speed of the Note 12 (G96) have also been stepped down. It charges the bigger 5,000 mAh battery at 33W. The main camer is now 50 MP and the second one is 2 MP. The megapixel count of the last one is unknown. the selfie camera still remains at 16 MP.
The RAM and the OS remains the same in this model and both devices have dual speakers with DTS, but only the VIP has dual X-axis linear motors for a superior haptic feedback.
The Note 12 (G96) and the Note 12 VIP come in three and two colors respectively, which are Cayenne Grey and Force Black (VIP), Sapphire Blue, Snowfall and Force Black (G96) and both phones will retail for 200$ and 300$ respectively in selected countries.
