 The iQoo 12 and the iQoo 12 Pro. The base model has long been scheduled to launch in the Indian market on December 12. There has been no word yet about the India launch of the high-end Pro variant though.

The vanilla iQoo 12 model will include Qualcomm’s latest chipset and feature a 50-megapixel triple rear camera unit. It is said to succeed the iQoo 11 5G, which was introduced in China in December 2022 and later in India in January this year. The company has now revealed the OS and availability details of the handset.

The company announced that the iQoo 12 5G will launch in India with Android 14-based Funtouch OS 14, making it the first non-Pixel smartphone to launch in the country with Android 14 out-of-the-box. There are other models like the Galaxy S23 models that have received Android 14-based updates since Google released the OS version earlier this year in October.
