Following LG’s recent re-launch of its Prada handset in silver, the manufacturer has also overhauled its Viewty phone with a dark silver façade.

LG's Viewty: now in silver

The colour will be offered in addition to the existing black option, which was launched in Europe last November. LG plans to launch the handset in a selection of additional, undisclosed colours later this year too, because it claims it’s responding to customers’ “insights and needs”.

LG also claims to have made scrolling through the phone’s menus even easier by refurbishing the phone’s jog-wheel. However, the handset’s other features remain unchanged. So, users still get a 3in touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera and a Micro SD memory card slot.

The company hasn’t confirmed when its Dark Silver LG Viewty will be available to European customers, but in the meantime you can read Register Hardware’s review of the handset – here.
