This might be the screen glass of an upcoming Nokia WP8 phone

As Nokia is gearing up for the upcoming launch of its new Windows Phone 8 handsets (which should happen at Nokia World in September), it's practically inevitable that a part or two - and hopefully even a whole phone - would leak.
Today's item was originally posted on CNBeta but the page has since been taken down. It is supposedly the display glass of a Nokia WP8 phone. It's big enough to fit a 4.3" screen and it's curvier than current Lumia designs. The aspect ratio corresponds to 480 x 800 - the lowest of the three resolutions that the new OS supports.
Update: actually, it looks like 768 x 1280 (the highest) fits pretty well too. In the first case, the pixel density will be 217ppi and 347ppi in the second.
Note the new Windows logo and the positioning of the Nokia logo - they are different than the previous leak that claimed to show a whole Windows Phone 8 (or 7.8) device. So, they aren't showing one and the same device. It's entirely possible that one or both of them are fake too, or at least showing something different from what the rumors claim it to be.
