LG BL40 Christmas edition has accents, 8MP cam
LG recently announced it will soon release a special Christmas Edition of its already available BL40 New Chocolate handset in its home market of South Korea. The device will sport a special black case with golden accents and includes a voucher than can potentially win owners of the handset prizes valued at the equivalent of more than $4,000. The main other functional difference of the Christmas Edition phone compared to the original is its 8-megapixel camera versus a 5-megapixel shooter.
Other specs are retained, including the 4-inch, 800x345 resolution display, integrated Wi-Fi and a microSDHC memory card slot. Thanks to its unique layout, the screen is capable of showing two types of content at the same time.
The Christmas Edition BL40 is slated to ship in South Korea on December 10th, though pricing is unknown. There is no indication of if the handset will be made available in other markets. [via UnwiredView]
