Infinix Note 12 VIP is a Value Champion for $300

Infinix has just launched its first 120W fast charging phone called the Note 12 VIP, but that’s not the only highlight here. The phone has flagship features and there’s also a high-resolution camera setup on board, all for a reasonable price.

The Chinese brand has also unveiled another Note 12 device for as low as $200.

Design and Display

The screen is a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports 10-bit color, which is usually found on flagship displays only. It covers 100% of the DCI P3 color gamut and has a 360Hz touch sampling rate which enables low input delay. The fingerprint sensor sits on the side of the phone.

Internals and Storage

The main chipset here is MediaTek’s 12nm Helio G96 SoC with up to 256GB of storage and 8GB RAM that is virtually expandable by 5GB, making a total of 13GB. There is a microSD card slot for storage expansion as well.

You get Android 12 with XOS 10.6 on top on the software front.

Cameras

The main camera setup consists of a 108MP main sensor (1/1.67”, 1.92µm pixels after 9-in-1 pixel binning) with laser autofocus and PDAF. This is paired with a 13MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP depth sensor. This camera can record 2K video clips at 30 FPS and 1080p videos at 60 FPS.

The selfie camera is a 16MP shooter with 1080p video recording.

Battery and Pricing

The Note 12 VIP packs a 4,500 mAh battery with support for 120W fast charging which can juice up the phone to 100% in only 13 minutes. Infinix says that it has added up to 103 battery protection features to preserve battery longevity and prevent overheating.

The Infinix Note 12 VIP has a starting price of $300.
