LG new black series phone
LG Electronics on Monday announced the global launch of the third LG Black Label Series handset, yet unnamed by the company. LG reveals the new phone will utilize the latest smart phone technology including a 5-megapixel camera in the slimmest body in the industry, which prompts us to believe it will be similar, if not identical, in spec to the KF750 slider first seen at CeBIT. Carbon fiber and tempered glass will also be part of the phone's design.
The KF750 used a large touchscreen display and navigation pad on its top surface, with traditional buttons once the phone was slid open. It also had a video camera for calls, along with 160MB of built-in memory expandable via microSD cards.
LG is hoping its newest offering will share the success of its previous Black Label Series phones, the Chocolate and Shine, as well as its Prada touchscreen handset.
The phone's official unveiling, name and all, will take place on April 24, and the phone will be offered in Europe at first and then throughout the world.
