LG has announced the worldwide retail release of its fourth handset in its Black Label series, called the LG Chocolate BL40.

The phone will be readily available in the United Arab Emirates during mid-October this year and will retail at US $830.

The designers of the phone have focused on wide screen display and hence the fact that it has a four-inch wide screen that LG claims "opens up an enlarged and more optimal space for ‘on-the-go' computing".

The phone's wider 21:9 panoramic display, on a ‘Real VGA' HD LCD screen with an 800X345 pixel resolution, is aimed to establish a new comfort for when it comes to reading web pages, emails or using its document viewer.

Other features include 7.2 HSDPA that allows for faster internet and email; and a dual-screen user interface, which can display two different types of content simultaneously.

The user-interface has also been upgraded to an S-Class UI that offers 3D graphics and an improved touch functionality. It also has a one-touch copy and paste feature.

The design of the phone itself includes a glossy black finish, red highlights and a scratch-resistant glass. The phone's other features include a 5 megapixel camera and 1.18GB of internal memory.

Other phones in LG's Black Label series have included the likes of LG's Chocolate Gold, LG's Chocolate Platinum and LG's Chocolate 3G.
