The iQOO 12 series is reportedly in the works and a new leak has revealed the battery capacity and charging speed of the upcoming smartphone. The iQOO 12 is expected to succeed the iQOO 11 series which launched late last year in China.
Although the vanilla iQOO 11 made its way to India, it’s unclear whether the Pro model will debut in the country. Just recently, the brand has been offering the iQOO 11 at a discounted price to mark its three-year anniversary in India.
iQOO 12 Rumored Features
According to Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station, the flagship iQOO 12 5G will be powered by a large 5,000mAh battery. It will reportedly support 200W fast charging, which the brand typically reserves for its Pro models.
To recall, the iQOO 10 Pro, which launched back in July 2022, was the first smartphone by the brand to get 200W charging. Last year’s iQOO 11 Pro also supports 200W fast charging. In comparison, the vanilla iQOO 10 and iQOO 11 feature 120W charging.
Some reports suggest that the vanilla iQOO 12 could also get 50W wireless charging. As for the Pro model, we can speculate that the smartphone will also feature a 5,000mAh battery with 200W fast charging support.
Although no other details were leaked by the tipster, the iQOO 12 will reportedly break cover later this year. Both models in the series may likely be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.
Traditionally, iQOO launches the Pro version of its smartphones exclusively in China, while the basic models debut in India and other global markets. It remains to be seen if the brand makes an exception this time around and launches both models in India.

The iQOO 11 sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor with up to 16GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.
