We've already told you that LG is releasing a new Chocolate phone in Europe under the BL40 moniker, and on Thursday LG decided to make it official.
Indeed, the LG BL40 is skinny and long, much like a universal remote, and it has a stunning 4-inch display with the 21:9 wide-screen ratio we'd heard rumors about. The high-definition "Real VGA" LCD supports a 800x345 pixel resolution and boasts a cinema-like experience in your hand. LG also says that it has a dual-screen UI that can display two different types of content at the same time. The screen is made out of a curved, tempered glass.
Of course, this is strictly a Europe/Asia product (LG has yet to release a GSM Chocolate to a U.S. carrier), but perhaps we can get a slightly different version of it here courtesy of Verizon. We'll see. In the meantime, you can drool over these official pictures of the LG BL40. It'll be out by the third quarter of this year. More photos after the break.
