Rumors had recently surfaced that LG was working on a new touchscreen smartphone with widescreen cinema aspect. Today, a video has surfaced lending legitimacy to the rumors and making us drool. The phone, named LG Chocolate will be the 4 in its Black Label series giving it the number BL40. The 4 in the number also stands for the huge 4 inch touchscreen with the new Philips technology that allows it to have a cinema aspect of 21:9. While Philips has demonstrated higher resolution in this aspect, the LG phone will only have 800 by 344-pixel resolution. In addition, Chocolate has the following features which put it over the top:
- Flash-based 3D UI
- 7.2Mbps HSDPA
- 5 Mpxl camera
