LG is touting the touch screen's user interface as featuring a 3D cube-based layout with four customizable screens for accessing the phone's features.

"The direct, intuitive, and dynamic S-Class UI will be unlike anything that has appeared on a mobile phone before," Skott Ahn, president of LG Mobile, said in a statement.

The Arena features a 3-inch WVGA touch screen with 800×400 resolution and a 5-megapixel camera that promises "DVD quality video recording." The phone will also include support for HSDPA 7.2 networks, Wi-Fi, and A-GPS.

LG plans to announce more details at the Mobile World Congress , which runs February 16 to 19 in Barcelona.
