After announcing the LG X Series devices – X Screen and X Cam, LG has announced the LG Stylus 2 ahead of the MWC 2016. The Stylus 2 which succeeds the LG Stylo (also known as the LG G4 Stylus) will arrive ‘exceptionally priced’ and in three colour options to choose from – Brown, Titan and White.
Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, the LG Stylus 2 sports a 5.7-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) HD In-Cell Touch display and includes a Stylus pen with nano-coated tip for more accuracy compared to that of the G Stylo with rubber-tipped pen. The pen comes with various functions such as Pen Pop, Pop Memo, Pop Scanner and Pen Keeper.
The device relies on the same quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz used by the predecessor but the RAM has increased from the 1GB on the LG G Stylo to 1.5GB. It has 16GB internal storage space, a microSD card slot for storage expansion and backed by a removable 3000mAh battery.
The LG G Stylus 2 measures 155 x 79.6 x 7.4mm in dimensions and weighs in at 145 grams, which make it lighter and slimmer compared to its predecessor. In the camera aspect, there is a front facing 8MP camera and a rear facing 13MP camera. Connectivity options available includes – 4G LTE/3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB 2.0
Commenting on the launch of the Stylus 2, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, Juno Cho said;
“LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone at a price of a mid-tier phone. This device is another example of our commitment to the mass-tier segment where there is so much opportunity for growth and creativity.”
