The latest Infinix Android 12 smartphone, the Note 12 VIP, is also the world's latest 120W smartphone. Furthermore, the OEM touts it as the slimmest mobile device with this charging technology. It also has a 120Hz AMOLED display and a 108MP main rear camera and a reasonable price tag, if only because of its 4G/LTE-only MediaTek Helio chipset.

A new device under the product name of Note 12 with a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display, 108+13+2MP rear cameras and a 4,500mAh battery with 120W HyperCharge technology in a flat-edged, 7.89mm high chassis has launched today. However, it is not from Redmi as some might expect, but from the emerging mid-range specialist brand Infinix instead.

The Note 12 VIP is so called in order to differentiate it from its new Note 12 (G96) sibling that has launched without its maxed-out main camera, refresh rate and charging standard. Then again, they are both based on the Helio G96 SoC, paired with 8GB of RAM to drive XOS 10.6 based on Android 12.

This possible very vague swipe at what might be expected from Redmi's Note 12 phones will start at the equivalent of ~US$200 for a 12 (G96), rising to about $300 for a 12 VIP, in markets where Infinix is active (including the Phillppines, Nigeria and Pakistan) soon.
