With the recent success of the LG G3 flagship, you’d be forgiven for getting excited about something called the LG G3 Stylus, a name that immediately brings to mind the Samsung Galaxy Note range and its super-fancy S Pen.
But nope, the LG G3 Stylus is officially a watered down G3, ultimately intended to sit at an “exceptional” price point.
Looking at the LG G3 Stylus spec sheet, it’s an odd mix, and while it doesn’t sound entirely terrible, a flagship this thing is not.
Starting with the screen, well, the LG G3 raised the industry bar with a 5.5in QHD display. The LG G3 Stylus is 5.5in qHD, too, but note that lower case ‘q’. That means a 960 x 540 pixel arrangement instead of 2560 x 1440, or 200PPI (pixels per inch) vs. 534. Ouch.
Other LG G3 Stylus specs include a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB expandable storage, a 13MP rear camera, 1.3MP front shooter, KitKat Android 4.4.2, and a removable 3,000mAh battery.
As we’ve come to expect from LG of late, the G3 Stylus also offers Smart Keyboard, Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot and Knock Code, while Dual Window does what it says on the tin, splitting the screen in two.
Despite promising an “exceptional price that can’t be beat”, LG doesn’t care to say how much the G3 Stylus will cost just yet, though we’re promised more info at IFA in Berlin next week.
