Chocolate BL42 spotted

Quickly following official previews of the multi-touch LG BL40 come some unofficial images of a smaller, less advanced Chocolate-series handset, the LG BL42, courtesy of a Danish leak. The new LG handset is a slider, with the top panel home to a 240x320 resolution screen and a few backlit touch-sensitive buttons; it slides open to reveal a conventional number pad.

Shown next to the original Chocolate, the spiritual successor seems to be a little larger, with squarer edges. The new Chocolate is expected to have 3G network access over UMTS and a Java-based operating system. The rear panel shows a 5-megapixel camera. The screen resolution and camera are both significant upgrades from the original handset's 176x220 display and 1.3-megapixel camera.

A production name, pricing nor release dates are known for the LG BL42. [via SlashGear]

    who... cares? It'll be a lousy phone like all LGs.
