LG to Unveil its Third Black Label Handset

One after another, LG continues to come with the sexy new handsets. The latest addition will drop in Europe on April 24th and will be the third entry into LG’s “Black Label” line of sleek higher-end handsets. Known specs are limited at this point; heck we don’t even have a name or a model number yet, but from what we can tell so far it looks like a winner. Sure it will wear the ‘fashion phone’ hat but as with several recent additions to LG’s lineup, functionality has quickly caught up with form in this Korean manufacturer’s labs. Here’s what we’ve got so far:

  • Slider form factor, slim body
  • Tempered glass-covered display, possibly touchscreen
  • Carbon fiber finish
  • 5 megapixel camera with flash
  • No traditional d-pad, one nav button beneath the display plus backlit call, clear and end buttons on the slide

With the official launch just over two weeks away, it won’t be long before we can tell you more about this stunner. The initial launch will be in Europe as mentioned above, but let’s hope that LG decides to drop some US-spec 3G love in a bit further down the road. In the meantime, we can all dream can’t we?
