In a press release complete with partially obscured teaser pictures, LG announced yesterday that it was it was nearing completion of the next generation of the company’s wildly popular Chocolate phone.
Originally debuting in 2006, the Chocolate is LG’s most successful phone to date, with over 21 million handsets sold worldwide. With its teaser campaign, LG is certainly milking the Chocolate for all it’s worth.
The first three versions of the candy-bar style device were available for Verizon Wireless, but LG has not indicated which carrier’s lineup will be sweetened by the next-gen Chocolate.
“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.”
What this “disruptive force” will be is pretty hazy, but LG is expected to fully lift the curtain on the chocolaty goodness in August.
