LG today has officially announced its latest flagship smartphone, the LG G3 Stylus. The LG G3 Stylus as you might have suspected from its name alone, is a new variant of the previously released LG G3. The obvious difference is of course the fact that the phone comes with a stylus.
The LG G3 Stylus will be rocking a 1.3 GHz Quad-core processor, 5.5-inch qHD IPS screen (960×540), 1GB of RAM with 8GB of internal memory plus microSD slot, a 13MP camera with 1.3MP front-facing camera and 3,000 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
As you can see from its specs, the LG G3 Stylus has many of the same features as the LG G3. However, LG decided to scale down some features such as the non-HD screen, lower internal memory, smaller RAM capacity, and a less powerful camera. This is done to accomodate the inclusion of a stylus and to lower the SRP of the phone as well. Yes, as mentioned, the LG G3 will be sold at a relatively cheaper price than Samsung’s Galaxy Note line-up. LG is probably hoping to catch up on the phablet market by way of introducing a competitive rival to the Galaxy Note with a cheaper price.
The LG G3 Stylus is scheduled to be released in Brazil, Asia, Middle East and Africa. No words yet on when it will reach the U.S. market. Likewise, official pricing has not been revealed yet.
