LG BL40 Chocolate unboxing video

LG’s Black Label handset, the LG BL40, has to be one for the more unusual form-factor handsets available at the moment with its stunning 4" 345 x 800 pixel display offering a truly cinematic ratio of 21:9 – this is a tall (or wide) handset!

When I first head about this handset and its huge display I thought the BL40 would turn out to be a huge handset, however, it really isn’t. Sure it is large in one direction but it’s quite narrow and extremely thin which means that the whole package is quite pocketable.

The widescreen display makes the BL40 idea for mobile web-browsing but whether or not it will provide a better browsing experience than its 480×800 pixel widescreen Windows Mobile competitors remains to be seen. We’ll find out during the review which we’ll have online for you within the next week or so.

For now, have a look at the unboxing video below to see the LG BL40 in a little more detail and for a quick tour of the S-Class OS.
