The India launch date has been fixed for December 12 at 5 PM but ahead of the launch, specs (globally) and India prices have been hinted at. Read on to find out.

In Malaysia and Indonesia too, it has been announced in a single 16GB+512GB model. In Malaysia, it costs RM 3999 (Rs. 71,300 approx.) while in Indonesia it is priced at IDR 10,999,000 (Rs. 58,900).

iQOO 12 5G: India price tipped

A few days ago, tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore claimed that the Amazon listing had revealed the price of iQOO 12 5G in India. According to Amazon listing, iQOO 12 will come to India in 2 storage models-

  • 12GB RAM+256GB storage- Rs. 52,999
  • 16GB RAM+512GB storage- Rs. 57,999

Although these prices do fall in love with previous leaks and are slightly less than iqoo 11 when it launched, these are yet to be confirmed by the brand. So, we expect that the actual price that will be announced on December 12 will be lower than the prices tipped.

Pre-booking for iQOO 12 5G was open until December 7 via Amazon and The Rs. 999 priority pass will be adjusted with the price and pass holders will get Vivo TWS earbuds worth Rs. 2999 free. Moreover, these pass holders will get exclusive access to all the offers that will be unveiled on the launch day. The event will stream live on iQOO India’s YouTube Channel.
