An adherent to the “beat the competition at their own game” strategy, LG has long tried to ape Samsung’s product lineup, often going so far as to blatantly copy design elements or software features from the Galaxy creators.
But LG never had a direct rival for the Galaxy Note series, despite being fairly active in the phablet arena. True, the Optimus G Pro and G Pro 2 were clearly aimed at the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3, but neither one supported stylus input, so you couldn’t call them GNote clones challengers all the way.
The G3 Stylus, meanwhile, addresses the pen absence inconvenience, looking set to go up for grabs any day now. Quite the cheeky way to troll Sammy’s early September Note 4 announcement, although technically, the G3 Stylus isn’t official yet.
I mean, it’s real, that much is obvious after checking out the embedded G3 Beat product movie/commercial below, but I guess it’s possible it starts selling subsequent to the Note 4, in which case it might need an outstanding list of features to stand out.
Aside from using an “L Pen,” the G3 Stylus is tipped to pack a quad-core Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor, with 3 GB RAM for breezy multitasking, a gigantic 5.9-inch Quad HD display, 13 MP rear-facing camera and pre-loaded Android 4.4 KitKat. So yeah, basically a cross between the standard G3 and G Pro 2, with pen input added in the mix for good measure. Sounds pretty hot to me.
