The other day we brought you news of a display-digitizer unit coming from ALPS, a sub-contractor for Nokia who handles parts for their phone development. At the time there was one single image that measured at 4.3” across and showed what looked to be a front, plastic bezel for a new Windows Phone 8 device.

Fast forward today and we have a few more images but of a different looking phone, putting to rest any doubt that the previous image may be faked.

We can now clearly see the proto.nokia.com website and “not for sale” emblazoned on the side as is common with Nokia development devices. The bezel also appears to be a slightly different design with a large capacitive button area near the bottom.

 

We say these images are of a different device because the edges are not as rounded as the previous one and the Nokia logo is now to the right instead of centered. Clearly one device is a 4.3” screen while this one appears to be closer to 4.”. Neither display looks to be a part of the alleged 'Phi' device leaked last week which shows an updated Lumia 800/900 design. Upon closer inspection, this does appear to be an updated design for the 'Phi' leaked last week. (See updated image below).

It will be curious to see what happens on September 5th in New York City when Nokia is expected to finally reveal what their Windows Phone 8 plans are. We have heard that up to three new device will be revealed, which matches what we have seen so far. Unfortunately none of those are expected to be a PureView Windows Phone.
