Note 12 VIP announced as the first Infinix smartphone with 120W fast charger

Infinix have just announced the Note 12 VIP, a model in the Note 12-series with a whooping 120W fast charger. The device is the company’s first Note device with 108-megapixel primary camera. It is the highest variant in the Note 12-series so far, and should not be confused with the Helio G85, Helio G88 or even the Note 12 Helio G96 model.

The Note 12 VIP is fitted with a 6.7-iniches AMOLED screen with 1080 x 2400 pixels. Infinix said the device is built from an aerospace-grade glass fiber, all harmonized in a rather thin, but tough 7.89mm body. It mimics iPhone’s flat edges and what looks like a matt finish plastic rear.

Aside the built quality, another highlight of the Note 12 VIP is the fast charging technology. It is maxed at 120W, and thankfully, the charging brick is in the box, and can push the 4500mAh battery on the Note 12 VIP from 0 to 100% within 17 minutes. Infinix is guaranteeing up to 800 charge cycles, thanks to the built-in 18 thermal sensors that monitor the device’s temperature in real-time to ensure safe charging always.
