LG previews its next Black Label designer handset

The handset will be LG's fourth one in the premium series

The fourth and latest member of LG's design-conscious Black Label family of handsets is out soon and already being teased on the Web.

The phone is the first to have a widescreen 21:9 aspect ratio screen, which is 4 inches in size and has 345 by 800 pixel resolution. That makes the screen longer and thinner than the 16:9 displays found on many new TVs and monitors.

It also has a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, and multi-touch plus all the scheduling, contact and other functions expected in mobile phones today.

There's not much else known about the phone so far. It will go on sale in Europe first and should be available in major markets from late August.

The Black Label began with the Chocolate phone, which was followed by the Shine and then the Secret. The name of the new handset has not yet been announced.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
