LG is iterating on its flagship LG G3 smartphone with the announcement of the LG G3 Stylus, which borrows some of the original G3’s features but is equipped with different internals and, as its name implies, a LG proprietary Rubberdium stylus pen.
As previously mentioned, the G3 Stylus keeps some of the features found on the LG G3 including the Floating Arc tapered edges, thin bezels, and metallic skin on the exterior design of the G3 Stylus as well as the 13-megapixel rear camera, 3,000mAh battery, and some of the company’s UX features including QuickMemo+, Dual Window, Smart Keyboard, Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot, and Knock Code.
The G3 Stylus also features a 5.5-inch qHD display with a screen resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, support for expandable storage via microSD, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Additionally, the LG G3 Stylus will run Google’s latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat and will come in Black, White, and Gold color options.
“With its exceptional hardware and exceptional price that can’t be beat, the LG G3 Stylus is in a category all by itself,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The LG G3 Stylus is the perfect tool for consumers who don’t want to be bogged down carrying a laptop, tablet and smartphone. It gets things done and lets you have fun while doing without having to compromise on quality, style or user experience.”
The LG G3 Stylus will start rolling out in markets in Brazil, Asia, the Middle East, African and the CIS in the coming months with specific details on pricing and availability being announced locally when the G3 Stylus launches in that market. The G3 Stylus will also be showcased at the upcoming IFA conference next month at the LG booth.
