LG VX8550 Chocolate Soon

A direct successor to the LG Chocolate (also known as the VX8500) is enroute as soon as next week, say those with access to photos and basic details. The VX8550 will represent a subtler cosmetic change with a metallic directional pad and with similar accents, but should also have a lower-cost music kit, including a stereo Bluetooth headset, a gift card for Verizon's music store, a microSD storage card, and a USB transfer cable for sideloading tracks. EVDO will also carry over from the original, though the inclusion faster Revision A access or separate improvements such as a better camera are unknown.

Regardless of the number of upgrades, Verizon intends to price the VX8550 identically to the existing Chocolate, the report claims. Black, blue mint, and black cherry hues of the phone should be available as soon as July 9th, when the phone should be available for $100 as part of a new two-year contract. The fate of the current model is unknown. [via Engadget]
