Things are just getting more and more interesting as we go along. Just a little while ago we were talking about a Nokia face plate of roughly 4.3 inches belonging to a supposed Windows Phone 8 device. Today we're throwing some wood into the flame, as WPCentral has spotted a number of images from Chinese Windows Phone forum WPXAP of yet another leaked display part that may make an appearance in an upcoming Windows Phone 8 device from Nokia.
Seen above (and in more pictures at WPCentral), this display returns to the hard angles of the high-end Lumia series as we know it so far, like the 800 and 900. It actually bears a strong resemblance to the former, sharing the Lumia 800's bottom bezel arrangement which includes a lot of empty space surrounding the capacitive keys.
Could this belong to the rumored (and very yellow) Nokia Phi? It's not exactly the same since it doesn't feature the new Windows Phone Start button, but assuming the device we saw was an early prototype than this face plate could belong to a near-release variant. Hence, they could be one and the same.
What do you think readers? Phi or fake?
