Infinix’s Note 12 VIP is a beast of a phone that won’t break the bank either

When you think of high-end smartphones that are powerful and come with a ton of features, more often than not they are also quite expensive. If you’re looking for a new smartphone that looks good and has the performance to handle the games thrown at it, then you might be interested in the Note 12 VIP smartphone from Infinix.

Starting with the design of the phone, it features flat edges all around the sides. That’s compared to the more curved edges we’ve seen in Android handsets in recent years, but what’s interesting is that according to Infinix, they’ve chosen to use a quality ultra-thin fiberglass material aerospace.

This gives the phone the texture of glass but with the strength of carbon fiber, while keeping it lightweight at just 199 grams. The phone will come with a huge 6.7-inch FHD+ Super Light AMOLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate, and under the hood, the Helio gaming processor G96 Ultra from MediaTek can be found.

The phone also comes with 8GB of RAM for its base, but it can borrow an additional 5GB of RAM from the ROM, bringing it up to a total of 13GB when needed. The Note 12 VIP also comes with dual DTS speakers, a graphene cooling system, and also linear motor touch systems that help deliver a unique experience while gaming.

The phone’s cameras are no slouch either, where it sports a 108MP camera, a 13MP ultra-wide lens and a depth sensor with laser-detection autofocus. Infinix also packed a 4,500mAh battery with 120W Hyper Charge.

If you’re worried about the price, Infinix says its new Note 12 VIP will cost around $299, which is actually a bargain. There is no word yet on availability as it differs from region to region.
