We saw the LG G3 Stylus leaking out in a G3 Beat commercial a couple of weeks ago. And today, the smartphone has officially been announced by LG, putting an end to the mystery once and for all. The smartphone is the same size as the LG G3, but that’s where the similarities end.
As the name suggests, the emphasis is on the stylus which comes supplied with the device although it’s nowhere nearly as functional as the S-Pen from Samsung’s Galaxy Note devices. Under the hood, the LG G3 Stylus packs midrange hardware, so don’t expect anything fancy going by the exterior.
The phablet has a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 960 x 540, a 1.3 GHz quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (expandable), a 13-megapixel camera on the back, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a 3,000 mAh user removable battery. There’s no LTE connectivity on board as LG is mostly targeting regions of South America, Asia, Europe and the CIS. Brazil will apparently be the first region to get the smartphone for an undisclosed amount.
While it doesn’t look the smartphone might make its way to LTE markets, we won’t be surprised if LG launches a new variant to accommodate for those markets as well.
