Ahead of the launch, I got my hands on the iQOO 12 and captured a few images. Here are some of the images captured with the device.

The iQOO 12 performs really well when it comes to clicking images in daylight conditions. The device is able to capture images with good details and colour reproduction. The device was able to capture images with good highlight retention, and was able to focus on the subject very quickly.

The device offers good portrait imagesSourabh Jain

I often find myself shifting to the portrait mode while capturing images and my experience with iQOO 12 was no different. The portrait images captured with the smartphone turned out well, with good edge detection and background blur effect. You can adjust the blur effect on the device, which is good, offering you more control over your images.

Telephoto

The smartphone comes with a 64MP periscope telephoto camera, which is able to capture decent telephoto images. As the device supports 3x optical zoom, you will have no issues at all with capturing images in 3x. Even images captured in 10x offered decent details, with minimal noise.

When you go to 30x, the images start losing detail and are grainy. The 100x mode is good for identifying objects but loses out on detail.
