The iQoo 12 is the successor to the iQoo 11, which was launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 59,999. Ahead of the launch of its latest flagship, iQoo has now announced a new Priority Pass for its users. The pass will get interested buyers of the upcoming iQoo 12 smartphone early access to the sale, among other things. The flagship smartphone is set to launch in India on 12 December.
iQoo’s Priority Pass can be availed between 5 December and 7 December 2023 by pre-booking the premium smartphone on Amazon or iQoo.com. iQoo claims that all interested buyers who pre-book the device will get the benefits of the Priority Pass. At the same time, the brand also mentions that Priority Passes are limited in number and will only be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Interested buyers will have to pay a refundable amount of Rs. 999 to pre-book the phone and avail of the Priority Pass. This amount will be adjusted in the final payment.
This Priority Pass comes with several benefits, some of which will be announced on launch day. For now, iQoo promises early access to order its iQoo 12 smartphone, which is a whole 24 hours before the sale.
