Is this an appalling excess, or a sign of the way things will go? Hard to say, until the phone gets released into the wild. And while those extra-widescreen pixels could be handy for watching movies as the director intended, if you’ve got the movie file on a PC you’re likely to have just the standard 720p or 1080p HD version, not the full-on widescreen. We know precious little else about the phone, apart from its sweet looks and that it’ll likely be running LG’s own operating system, an Obigo browser and could have a 5-megapixel camera.
