LG previews its next Black Label designer handset

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.
