Korean telecommunications manufacturer, LG Electronics, has unveiled a new mobile phone, Chocolate in Lagos.
Speaking at the launch, General Manager, LG Mobile Communication for West Africa, Mr. Sang Kil Park, said the phone is the first of the black label series being showcased to the market by LG.
“It has Media Player (MP-3) separate chips,” he said, stressing that Chocolate is a touch pad multi-key mobile tool which does not start calling because an instrument in your pocket touches it.
Chocolate, he also said, is a sweat sensitive phone, because nothing else activates the slim-slide stylish phone.
This, Mr. Park further said, is the first of its kind and has been a very big success in Europe after its initial launch four weeks earlier.
In addition, Chocolate comes with an extra battery and two ear-phone; one for the phone and another that could go with the MP-3 device.
The extra battery, he said, is a Value Added Service (VAS) by the telco, even as the phone book has the capacity for 1,000 entries.
Also speaking, Assistant General Manager, LG Electronics Nigeria, Mr. Vishwas Saxena, said they have all it takes to offer support services to sustain the Chocolate among other brands in the Nigerian market.
LG, he noted, has a one-year warranty with a service centre to back-up its products locally.
“We’re on ground,” he asserted, even as the Regional Marketing Manager, LG Electronics West Africa, Mr. Anudeep Sharma, also graced the event.
LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of Universal Mobile Telecommunications System cum Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access (UMTS/W-CDMA), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) handsets.
Its parent company was established over 25 years ago.
