LG Chocolate II: the hugely popular handset is back for 2009


LG is comin’ right back attcha this August with the second incarnation of their most popular mobile phone of all time, the LG Chocolate. The Chocolate II (TD working title) is described by the Korean tech giant as a “disruptive force in conventional mobile screens in an effort to maximize usability while inheriting the original minimalist-inspired style and iconic design of its predecessor”. Make of that what you will.

What we do know is that original LG Chocolate sold 21 million times over since its launch in 2006 and that they’re aiming for the new version to be just as special which is why they’re naming it as their fourth Black Label (top of the LG range) mobile phone after the Shine, Secret and the original, of course.

More details, pictures and prices ahead of next month’s launch. For now, we’ll have to satisfy ourselves with a picture of the old model. Still looks good but not very satisfying. Sorry.
