iQOO launched its flagship iQOO 12 smartphone in India in Legend and Alpha colours last year. Now it is finally bringing the Red version of the phone to India, which it is calling Desert Red Anniversary Edition. The company is celebrating its 4th anniversary in India.

This has a vegan leather finish instead of the glass back in the other version while retaining other specifications.

The new leather rubbing process creates a unique wind-printed texture like a desert, telling the story of the explorer’s journey to pursue the unknown, says the company.

The iQOO 12 Desert Red Anniversary Edition is priced at Rs. 52,999 for the 12GB + 256GB version and the 16GB + 512GB version costs Rs. 57,999. It will be available from and starting from April 9th.
