The Infinix Note 12 VIP is the latest to arrive here at the office and it’s one of the best equipped. We’re not talking about specs, although that’s nothing to sneeze at either – no, we’re talking about the retail experience.
The Infinix Note 12 VIP comes with lots of accessories. You get a gift card for the Infinix store, a bunch of stickers, a SIM tool, a free case, a screen protector (as well as a pre-applied one on the phone), earphones, a USB cable and a 120W charger.
The charger itself is the smallest 120W brick we’ve seen. It is rated for 5.0V at 3.0A or 4.0-20V at 6.0A. Just 10 minutes on this charger can replenish enough juice for 6 hours of gaming or 5 hours of YouTube streaming, claims the society. And the Note 12 VIP only needs 17 minutes to reach a full charge.
Infinix assures us that there are 103 protection features to prevent the 4500mAh battery from rapidly degrading. There are also 18 temperature sensors inside the phone. The manufacturer claims that the battery would retain 85% of its capacity after 800 charge cycles.
As for the phone itself, we have the gray Cayenne model. It’s a mix between slate gray and sky blue and it’s one we haven’t really seen on any phone so far.

The Infinix Note 12 VIP has a sleek design and a minimal feel in the hand. The edges of the display have a slight 2.5D curve, but other than that the Inifinix Note 12 VIP is flat throughout. Flat sides, flat back panel and square camera island.
This camera island packs three cameras in total, and two stand out – the main shooter has a 108MP 1/1.67″ sensor and an f/1.8 lens. It delivers 12MP shots after binning from 9 to 1 pixel. Another notable camera is the 13MP f/2.2 ultrawide. The third is simply a 2MP depth-sensing unit.
On the opposite side is a 16MP selfie camera.

We will end with a word on the screen. It’s lovely and by far the best we’ve seen on an Infinix phone. In terms of specifications, it is a 6.7-inch 1080x2400px 10-bit panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a maximum touch sampling rate of 360Hz. The screen is very punchy and contrasty and becomes very bright. It’s a beautiful thing to look at, and Infinix’s preloaded wallpapers do it justice.
Stay tuned for a more in-depth look at the Infinix Note 12 VIP coming later.
