Nipun Marya (CEO of iQOO India) has confirmed in a recent post made on X.com (formerly Twitter) that the iQOO 12 will officially be arriving on 12th December 2023. The launch date comes after the phone was teased with a China launch before. It is time to mark this date, especially if you want to grab this exciting upcoming smartphone from Vivo. This is one of the most hyped smartphone launches of late 2023, mainly because the iQOO 12 is going to be India’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 phone.
BMW is a premium partner of iQOO, so an exclusive iQOO 12 model is expected to launch later with a very BMW-centric design language. The iconic BMW stripes and logo will be a highlight. This phone is launching the product under the ‘Amazon Specials‘ category, so it will probably only be available from the retailer at launch. It’s natural to be hyped about the Vivo iQOO 12 as it is rumored to come with some exciting specifications.
