Over the past few days a number of Windows Phone 8.1 “leaks” have been posted on various sites from a Twitter account named @WPLeaker. None of these leaks have appeared on our site because we had very strong doubts about their validity. Today we can finally confirm that our intuition was correct. @WPLeaker has confirmed that the “leaks” he has been posting are nothing more than concepts.
There have been many, many alleged leaks of Windows Phone 8.1. This is the most highly anticipated update since Windows Phone 8 itself, so it’s only natural that people want to see as much as they can. Unfortunately almost 99% of these leaks have been fake. Only one leaked screenshot has been genuine, and it’s the one we have mocked-up in the photo at the top of this post. Hopefully we get some more honest leaks soon.
P.S. Just to be absolutely clear. The photo above is a mock-up based on this leak.
