New image taken of the AT&T branded LG Shine 2
The LG Shine for AT&T has been a widely stylish slider phone – especially it's appealing mirror-like screen which was highlighted in commercials. Sooner or later a successor was bound to appear somewhere to try and capitalize on the popularity of the model. There was a recent picture taken of the AT&T branded LG Shine 2 that gives us a better look at the upcoming device slated for a release later this year. The previous joystick found on the original LG Shine is being replaced with a traditional directional pad – all the while retaining that polished metallic look. Honestly, it looks extremely similar to the LG KF510 which was released over a year ago – but of course US consumers are finally getting a taste of it in the form of the LG Shine 2. Either way, we're just waiting for an official release date and price range – most likely going after the mid-range pricing category.

to me it looks the same as the original. i think it would have been great if they made it a touch screen phone. with a slide out qwerty keyboard. and keep the mirror-like screen...that would be awesome.

Glad they got rid of the joystick, that thing was a nightmare to use. The two soft buttons look really small, hopefully they will be easy to press.

They're probably touch sensitive.
