Everybody expectsLG to unveil its newest flagship device, the LG G5 smartphone, one day before the start of this year’s Mobile World Congress to be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain a few days from now. But surprise, surprise -- the South Korean tech giant has decided to introduce yet another device recently, specifically the LG Stylus 2, its latest addition to its phablet offerings.
The LG Stylus 2 should be a worthy follow up to the company’s G4 Stylus, which LG released in May of last year. Like the G4 Stylus, the LG Stylus 2 comes with a 5.7 inch display screen, but sports a thinner frame -- just 7.4 millimeters against the G4 Stylus’ 9.4 millimeters. Its slimness also makes the device lighter, weighing 146 grams compared to the G4 Stylus’ 163 grams. The LG Stylus 2 phablet may be more slender than the South Korean phone maker’s previous offering, but it does come with an SD card for expanding storage, and also boasts a 3,000 mAh battery. The device comes in three color options, namely white, “titan” (charcoal, metallic hue), and brown.
LG’s newest phablet also comes bundled with a stylus that features a nano coated tip that the company claims makes for more accurate display screen interaction compared to the rubber tipped stylus that came with the G4 Stylus. On top of this, the company is also offering a new Calligraphy Pen font, which will allow mobile users to write with the stylus like it was a regular fountain pen. Another feature that comes with the Stylus 2 is a warning system that notifies the user if the smartphone is detected to be in motion yet the stylus bay is empty.
With regards to other specifications, the LG Stylus 2 device features a 13 megapixel camera on the rear side (near where the power key is situated), and an 8 megapixel camera on the front side. Inside, the smartphone is equipped with a 1.2 GigaHertz eight core processor, supported with 1.5 gigabytes of random access memory as well as 16 gigabytes of onboard memory.
LG has not yet revealed any pricing and availability details for the LG Stylus 2 yet, but the South Korean mobile manufacturer has alluded that the device will be positioned as a midtier device. Along with the upcoming the LG G5, the LG Stylus 2 will be highlighted in the Mobile World Congress happening soon. Want to know how the LG Stylus 2 compares to other LG devices?
