Just days after its official debut in China, the iQOO 12 series, featuring the iQOO 12 and iQOO 12 Pro, is set to make a splash in the Indian market. However, just moments before the scheduled launch on December 12, the smartphone received a noteworthy update, adding an extra layer of excitement to the anticipation.

iQOO 12 Pre-Launch Update Unveiled

The iQOO 12 series, poised to capture the Indian audience, witnessed a last-minute Funtouch OS update, as disclosed by tipster Mukul Sharma through his X (formerly Twitter) handle. The update, identified by the version PD2307BF_EX_A_14.0.10.10.W30 and weighing in at 114 MB, aims to enhance the device’s performance and stability.

In a significant move, iQOO India CEO Nipun Marya had previously announced that the iQOO 12 series would receive three years of Android updates and an impressive four years of security patches. This departure from the conventional update policy of two OS updates and three years of security updates reflects the brand’s commitment to providing a prolonged and enriched user experience.

Optimizations in Funtouch OS Update

The Funtouch OS update primarily focuses on system optimization and network enhancements. Notably, the improvements include optimized system operating performance, heightened system stability, and refined network adaptability. Despite these enhancements, the brand assures users that the update won’t tamper with their usage data, emphasizing the importance of data backup as a precautionary measure.

According to the brand’s update note, the upgrade process might briefly impact device usage, leading to a temporary rise in temperature. However, iQOO recommends connecting the charger during the update to mitigate any potential issues. Once the upgrade is complete, the device is expected to return to its normal temperature swiftly.

iQOO reassures users that the installation can seamlessly occur in the background without hindering the device’s functionality. With the Indian launch scheduled for 5:00 PM local time on December 12, the brand is poised to introduce its innovative smartphone series to the Indian market. Thus, stay connected with Techgenyz for more updates on the upcoming smartphones.
