LG had a pretty rockin’ Q2 with record-high smartphone shipments, and that was largely thanks to the flagship G3 and its popularity in South Korea.
In addition to the recent LG G3 Beat, the South Koreans have promised further G3 variants, and the next candidate appears to be the G3 Stylus.
That’s the story according to, well, LG; more specifically a YouTube video posted by LG Mobile Global. It was fired up yesterday, and is still available for all to see at the time of writing.
Right near the end of the 3-minute video (2:48), the G3 line-up is revealed in full, comprised of the bog standard G3, the mid-tier G3 Beat, and the as-yet-unannounced G3 Stylus.
Logically, the LG G3 Stylus will take aim at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which will inevitably be the star of IFA 2014 next month.
The LG G3 Stylus is tipped to have a 5.9in display, 0.4in bigger than the G3, 0.2in bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (and probably the Note 4), and the same size as the LG G Pro 2.
Inevitably the LG G3 Stylus will have rear buttons (that certainly appears to be the case in the video), though it’s not clear if it’ll push the boat out with a G3-matching QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) or settle for 1080p.
While we're speculating, the LG G3 Stylus might/maybe/possibly be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805.
More LG G3 Stylus news as and when, punks.
