New Infinix Note 12 smartphone with Helio G99 coming soon
Back in May this year, MediaTek launched three new chipsets, namely the Helio G99, the Dimensity 930, and the Dimensity 1050. And now, Infinix Mobile has confirmed via its Twitter handle that it will be the first brand to launch a phone featuring the Helio G99 chipset.
The Transsion holding-owned company confirmed that an upcoming Infinix Note 12 series phone will feature the Helio G99 chipset. The Note 12 family already includes four members, such as the Infinix Note 12, Note 12 G96 (aka Note 12 Turbo in India), Note 12i, and Note 12 VIP.
The Note 12 and Note 12i are powered by the Helio G88 and G85 chipsets, respectively, whereas the Note 12 G96 and Note 12 VIP are powered by the Helio G96. Hence, it appears that the upcoming Helio G99 powered Note 12 model will be the most powerful device in the series. It remains to be seen whether it will carry the Note 12 Pro moniker or some other name.

Built with TSMC’s 6nm process, the Helio G99 includes 2 x Cortex-A76 CPU cores working at 2.2GHz, 6 x Cortex-A55 cores ticking at 2GHz, and a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. It can support up to a 108-megapixel camera. However, it lacks support for 5G connectivity. The Helio G99 powered Note 12 series phone may go official as early as this month.
Currently, the Note 12 VIP is the most powerful phone in the family. It has a 6.7-inch AMOLED FHD+ 120Hz display, a 16-megapixel front camera with dual-LED flash, a triple camera unit with 108-megapixel (main) + 13-megapixel (ultrawide) + 2-megapixel (depth) flash, the Helio G96 chipset, up to 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of native storage, a 4,500mAh battery with 120W fast charging, and a side-facing fingerprint scanner.
