LG Chocolate Touch due in Europe mid-September

LG on Friday announced that its first touchscreen phone, the Chocolate BL40 handset will begin shipping in the UK starting in mid-September, then arrive at other European countries before making a full worldwide release in October. The device sports a wide 4-inch, 800x480 resolution touchscreen with a 21:9 aspect ratio which can be split into two virtual halves for multitasking.

LG's S-Class 3D touch user interface is preloaded onto the device, which supports high-speed 7.2 HSPA networks. One-touch copy and paste functionality will also be part of the device's capabilities. Pricing for the LG Chocolate BL40 remains unknown, however. In the US, the Chocolate BL40 is expected to arrive at provider Verizon first.
