According to an earlier report, it seemed that many had initially expected the LG G3 Stylus to be a high-end flagship smartphone. However more recent reports have painted the handset in a low-mid range light and sure enough that’s what the handset is. LG has officially announced the LG G3 Stylus which basically borrows some of the LG G3’s features but is offered at a more affordable price instead.
The handset will feature a 5.5-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960×540 (not to be confused with QHD) and will be powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The phone will also be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh removable battery, and will come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat preinstalled.
So far so good, right? Well if there is one feature that is a little disappointing is the fact that the handset will only play nice with 3G connections, so if you wanted an LTE-enabled smartphone on the cheap, you will have to look elsewhere. However the upside is that the LG G3 Stylus will come with a stylus that seems like it is meant to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note series, albeit at a cheaper price.
Some of the features LG will be introducing with the phone includes QuickMemo+, Dual Window, Smart Keyboard, Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot, and Knock Code. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced but LG will be sharing those details at IFA 2014 which is kicking off next week, so be sure to check back with us then for the details.
