LG debuts Chocolate Platnium, European Shine

LG Chocolate Platinum

LG this morning unveiled two new designer phones to its Black Label series. The Chocolate Platinum (pictured) is the finished version of the previously hinted-at KE800 and is targeted as a premium version of the original. In addition to a camera upgrade from 1.3 to 2 megapixels, the Platinum is more music-friendly and gains an FM radio as well as double the internal flash, holding 256MB of songs before needing its microSD slot for expansion. Its interface is also subtler, LG claims: the screen and touch-sensitive buttons both stay dark when not actively used, presenting a clean black surface and saving battery life. No official launch date and price are set, though the phone is due first for Europe.

A full photo and details of the Shine follow after the jump.



Also announced was the official European availability of the Shine (pictured below), widely seen as the Chocolate's spiritual successor. The all-metal phone also has a 2-megapixel camera and is based on GSM in its European trim. Prices weren't announced, but LG notes that the phone is inexpensive enough to be available for free with some carriers' cellphone plans. A North American equivalent is expected later this year.
