LG Chocolate BL20 dated for UK launch

LG has announced its second new Chocolate phone, the BL20, for the UK market.

The little brother to the widescreen BL40, the BL20 gets the same kind of styling, but has a keypad instead of being touchscreen-only.

LG has now announced that it will be available in the UK in Q4 from mobile phone operator O2.

The 12.3mm thick BL20 offers a 2.4-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash capable of recording video, touch-sensitive controls on the side and "widget hotkeys" for personalisation.

A new feature is "Clear Memo Capture" which LG says captures notes and drawings "with maximum clarity".

The HSPDA handset's specs include 5-hours talktime, a WAP browser, media playback, FM radio, microSD memory expandable up to 16GB and Bluetooth 2.1.

The "affordable price" LG promises will be revealed nearer the time by O2. We will keep you posted.
