LG G Stylo debuts as mid-range stylus-toting phablet
The much-rumored stylus-toting phablet from LG is now official, making its formal debut in Korea as the LG G Stylo.
Rumors of a new LG phablet with a stylus have been making rounds for quite some time now, with some even suggesting that LG aims to go up against Samsung's high-end Galaxy Note phablets. Some rumors also suggested that this device would be a top-notch variant of the upcoming LG G4, dubbing it the LG G4 Note or G4 Stylus.
More recently, however, reports suggested that this upcoming phablet from LG would in fact come in the mid-range segment of the market, and it now seems they were accurate. LG has officially announced its new stylus-enabled phablet and its specifications aren't all that impressive.
The LG G Stylo does indeed come with a stylus, as the name itself suggests, but its specifications are far from high-end. More specifically, the phablet sports a massive 5.7-inch display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which translates to a low pixel density of 258 ppi. Under the hood, the LG G Stylo packs a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, paired with 1.5GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory of up to 2TB, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Connectivity options consist of Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, 4G LTE, NFC, A-GPS, and USB 2.0.
Based on these specifications, the LG G Stylo is shaping up as a mid-range device at best, and it's by no means a real competitor to the high-end Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Nevertheless, LG touts that the "Stylo" moniker not only stands for "stylus," but also for "style."
Truth be told, the LG G Stylo doesn't look bad, but it's not all that impressive either. LG has not disclosed the retail price of its new stylus-toting phablet, but the specs hint toward an affordable device. The LG G Stylo will make its initial debut in South Korea, while a more global rollout is set to start sometime in May. LG has yet to mention what other markets will get the new LG G Stylo, but is expected to provide more information closer to launch. We'll keep you up to date as soon as we hear more, so stay tuned.
