LG is launching a new smartphone with a big screen, a capacitive stylus, and mid-range (or arguably entry-level) specs. It’s called the LG G Stylo and it’ll be available in select markets starting in May.
The new phone is a follow-up to last year’s LG G3 Stylus, which was offered in Latin America, Central America, and other developing markets.
The LG G Stylo has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, a 5.7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel IPS display (with 258 pixels per inch, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
LG’s new phone has an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, and a 3,000 mAh user replaceable battery. It supports 80.22n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, A-GPS, and 4G LTE.
The included stylus is probably the phone’s most distinctive feature — but it’s not a active pen like you’d get with a Samsung Galaxy Note. The stylus has a rubber tip and it’s designed to let you doodle on a capacitive touchscreen display. The phone doesn’t have an active digitizer for pressure-sensitive input or for detecting a pen that hovers over the surface.
