Honor launched the V10 (globally known as Honor View 10) last year. The smartphone carried high-end specifications and was well received in almost all markets. The company now seems to be getting ready to launch a successor of the phone, which has been spotted on two certification websites. However, based on the listings, it looks like Honor is skipping a generation and going straight to call its new smartphone Honor V12 instead of V11.
91mobiles spotted the smartphone on both Chinese TENAA and American FCC certification websites. If we have to consider the past, even the Honor V10 was leaked on both websites prior to its Chinese launch, which was followed by a global launch event in UK. However, the thing worth noting here is that the Honor V10 hadn’t showed up on these websites till November. So, the Honor V12 making an appearance so early in the year could only mean that Honor plans on launching the device much ahead of its usual timeline.
There’s not much information in terms of specifications, but TENAA did update its listing with an image of the smartphone, which gives us an idea of its design. It doesn’t look like the Honor V12 will be featuring a fancy design. There is no notch display and even the bezels look quite thick. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back.

In terms of specifications, it looks like the Honor V12 will be coming with a 5.5-inch display and 1,900mAh battery. It was also mentioned that the phone will be supporting LTE, dual-SIMs and an Android operating system. However, it’s still too early to confirm these details and we’d like you to take the information with a pinch of salt.
