LG brings Chocolate style to plasma sets

LG Chocolate plasma

Multinational giant LG is again planning to expand its line of plasma TV sets, but the most interesting news may be its decision to bring over the increasingly ubiquitous Chocolate design from its phones, characterized by a glossy black exterior and red, touch-sensitive buttons. This is being applied first to two TVs: the 50-inch PB65, and the 60-inch PF95. The latter is capable of full HD resolution, and 1x1 pixel-matching; the PB65 is merely described as "HD-Ready," but it still has a 15,000:1 contrast ratio, and a thin film filter that eliminates the glare and reflection of glass, boosting brightness by up to 30 percent.

Accompanying the Chocolate-like sets are two more conventional models. The PC55 comes in 42- and 50-inch variants, but aside from different aesthetics, is otherwise fairly similar to the PB65. LG is also updating its MW-71PY1M set however, which is sized at a colossal 71 inches, and boasts full HD as well as a PC input that allows photos and video clips to be transmitted. All four TVs are being equipped with twin HDMI inputs. Unfortunately, no prices or release schedules have been discussed. [via Pocket-lint]
