Glossy pictures paraded, too

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Following its release of some craftily darkened product pictures earlier this month, LG has now released several glossy shots and specifications for its upcoming second-generation Chocolate mobile phone.

LG's BL40 is the second phone from the Chocolate range

Set to the called the LG-BL40, the candybar sports an 800 x 345, 4in display. The screen’s 21:9 aspect ratio is, according to LG, perfect for “panoramic, cinema-like quality” viewing.

The display’s also overlaid with curved tempered glass, LG said, that’s supposedly seamlessly encased within a gloss-black body featuring…ahem…“iconic red highlights”.

LG’s yet to say much about the phone’s features, aside from confirming that the phone will run a “Dual Screen UI” enabling you to display two different types of content simultaneously.

The screen provides “panoramic, cinema-like quality”, apparently

But the images do reveal the presence of a rear-mounted 5Mp camera on the BL40.

LG has promised that the LG-BL40 will be available in 54 countries at the beginning of Q3. A price hasn’t been released. ®
