Infinix Note 12 VIP arrives with 120W charging, 120Hz screen and 108MP camera
Today, Infinix is breaking the 100W charging barrier with a new member of the Note 12 series. The phone also has a 120Hz display and a 108MP camera. At the same time, another model will fit right on top of the original Note 12.
Infinix Note 12 VIP • Infinix Note 12 (G96)
The Infinix Note 12 VIP supports 120W Hyper Charge. Charging time from 0 to 100% is just 17 minutes, thanks to the dual charge pump setup. If you can’t wait that long, a 10-minute quick charge is enough for 6 hours of gaming or 5 hours of YouTube video streaming.
Below is a graph showing the steep charge curve used by the Hyper Charge system:
However, speed should not be confused with haste. The 4,500 mAh battery is protected by 103 protection features on the phone and charger, including 18 temperature sensors inside the phone. According to Infinix, the VIP’s battery will retain 85% of its capacity after 800 charge cycles.
Infinix Note 12 VIP Highlights
The phone has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, similar to the screen on the original Note 12, but much more capable. It’s a 10-bit panel with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and a 120Hz refresh rate (plus 360Hz touch sampling rate).
Another VIP exclusive update is that the main camera on the back has a 108 MP sensor (1/1.67″, 1.92 µm pixels after 9 into 1 pixels), the 13 MP ultra wide angle camera , as well as the laser AF system.
Today’s second new model is the Infinix Note 12 (G96). It is named after the Helio G96, a 12nm chipset (2x A76, 6x A55, Mali-G57 MC4). This same chip also powers the Note 12 VIP, but the VIP has better cooling with 9 layers of graphene plus a vapor chamber, while the Note 12 (G96) has 10 layers of graphene and no chamber. Either way, the G96 will outperform the Helio G88 found inside the standard Note 12.
Aside from the chipset, the Note 12 (G96) stays close to the specs of the original Note 12. That means the 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen lacks high refresh rate and 10-bit support. Also, the rear camera has a 50 MP (1/2.8″) main sensor and a 2 MP assistant (not ultra wide angle). Compared to the VIP, the battery is slightly larger at 5000mAh, but slower to charge (33W).
Highlights of the Infinix Note 12 (G96)
Both new Note 12 models feature 16MP selfie cameras and XOS 10.6 software (based on Android 12). In addition, both have 8 GB of real RAM and 5 GB of virtual RAM can be activated. And while both have dual speakers with DTS, only the VIP has dual X-axis linear motors for superior haptic feedback.
