LG BL40 Black Label featurephone preview video leaks

Last week we berated LG for rolling out another tired teaser campaign for their latest Chocolate-series device; today we're feeling a little more accommodating, having been sent a teaser video with a whole lot more promise.  According to the footage, the fourth-gen LG Black Label series device - tipped to be the BL40 - will have a 4-inch multitouch display, 7.2Mbps HSPA, WiFi and full internet browsing in a deliciously skinny chassis.

There's also A-GPS and WiFi, together with premium materials such as scratch-resistant glass for the display bezel.  The camera optics are apparently by Schneider Kreuznach, though we're having trouble making out exactly how many megapixels are on offer; earlier leaks said 5-megapixels

It could be that this is all a mock-up by someone with too much time on their hands - it didn't come to us direct from LG - but that someone would have to really love LG and have a whole lot of time on their hands to put it together.  The footage says a launch in 2009; our previous information suggested an announcement in August, so not long to wait to hear more.
