LG Electronics officially revealed today the full image and key specifications of the new LG Chocolate phone (model: LG-BL40), which will launch worldwide in September.
The fourth handset of the Black Label Series boasts a 4.0-inch wide screen high-definition LCD with an 800 by 345 pixel resolution. The wide screen breaks away from conventional screen designs with a 21:9 aspect ratio for a cinema-like quality.
Browsing the Internet is made easy because with 800 pixels at one's disposal, there is no need to scroll horizontally to read entire web pages. The 4.0-inch display also features a Dual Screen UI that can efficiently display two different types of content simultaneously.
The wide HD LCD "Real VGA" screen provides a full range of natural colors for displayed images.
"The initial response to the new LG Chocolate phone has exceeded our expectations by a wide margin," said Dr. Skott Ahn, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications. "Although much interest seems focused on the striking shape of the handset, the real surprise will be when people discover the advantages of the 4.0-inch screen in terms of viewing pleasure and ease of use."
The new LG Chocolate's wide screen is overlaid with curved tempered glass and is encased in a glossy black finish and iconic red highlights. Although the screen may be much wider, the new LG Chocolate makes a slim statement that was also inherent in the original Chocolate.
The new LG Chocolate will be available beginning Q3 in 54 countries.
