LG VX8700 Details

LG is planning a stylized successor to the VX8600, known simply as the VX8700. A new leak has illustrated the clear influence of the Shine on the device, which is expected to directly replace the Chocolate-influenced model already in use. The clamshell phone would toss aside the external music buttons of the 8600 but may gain the 2-megapixel camera spreading quickly across LG's cellphone range. Bluetooth, EVDO, and a microSD slot will stay in place.

Also confirmed by the leak is news that the VX8700 will be carried by Verizon in the US, almost certainly replacing its immediate ancestor when it goes on sale at an undetermined point in the future. Its price tag should also compare closely to the original at $130 with a two-year service plan. Click through the break for the complete photo. [via Crave]
