Next-Generation LG Chocolate to be Unveiled in August
LG Electronics, the world’s third-largest phone maker, is developing the next-generation version of its highly-successful Chocolate handset.
The original Chocolate debuted in 2006 and went on to become the most popular phone in the company’s history — selling 21 million units worldwide.
The South Korean-based company said the new Chocolate will draw from the same minimalist-inspired design but also include a 3.0-inch 21:9 aspect ratio screen, 5.0-megapixel camera and HSDPA high-speed Internet.
“The next generation Chocolate will have a tremendous impact on the market,” said Skott Ahn, Chief Executive of LG Electronics’s Mobile Division. “The new Chocolate will be a disruptive force in conventional mobile screens in an effort to maximize usability yet carry on the minimalist-inspired style and iconic design of its predecessor.”
The new LG Chocolate will be unveiled in August.
