LG announces new Chocolate


LG has announced the BL20, the latest addition to its Chocolate Series. It will be available in the UK from O2 in Q4.

The BL20, which follows the launch of the BL40 at the start of this month, features a sliding keypad and 5-megapixel autofocus camera. It comes with touch-sensitive controls that are concealed on the side of the phone, meaning users can instinctively feel their way around functions such as volume control and camera zoom for quick adjustments.

The handset also includes Widget Hotkeys to enable users to personalise their phone to directly access favourite features and a new feature called Clear Memo Capture, which captures text, handwritten notes and drawings with clarity to offer a different way to record information.

LG Mobile UK and Ireland head of marketing Jeremy Newing said: “Boasting advanced new features such as Widget Hotkeys and Clear Memo Capture, the BL20 offers consumers a design alternative to the already successful BL40 with its widescreen display.”
