Nokia’s excited about its upcoming Windows Phone 8 hardware, and so are we. A couple days back we got to see a leaked shot of a front panel to what looks to be one of its new WP8 models, and last week we got to look at another model, which may have been an earlier prototype. The leaks just keep on coming, and now we’ve got one more front panel to check out, with a slightly different design than before.
We’ve got the new Windows logo here, and the glass appears to be flat, rather than slightly curved, but otherwise this new component is a close match to last week’s leak. It’s the same basic shape, and the general proportions look correct, down to that wide area surrounding the capacitive buttons. There are a few tweaks to the design, like what appears to be a relocated front-facing camera, but this could very well be how that model emerges as a finished, commercial handset.
This gives us a nice start on knowing what to expect for the company’s September 5 New York City event with Microsoft. There’s a chance that Nokia could have three models ready to unveil, so if this really is a more current version of that other prototype, that still leaves us with one Nokia WP8 handset we’ve yet to get a glimpse of. The way these leaks have been coming, though, we just might get a chance to see that last model, as well, before Nokia makes them official.
