The latest is called the LG Q Stylus, and it’s expected to go on sale in North America and Asia this month.
Prices haven’t been announced yet, but LG describes the Q Stylus as a mid-range phone “with premium features.”
The LG Q Stylus will actually come in three versions:
- Q Stylus+: 4GB/64GB/16MP rear camera/5MP or 8MP front camer
- Q Stylus: 3GB/32GB/16MP rear camera/5MP or 8MP front camera
- Q Stylusα: 3GB/32GB/13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera
LG says the phones will feature 1.5 GHz or 1.8 GHz octa-core processor, 6.2 inch, 2160 x 1080 pixel displays, 3,300 mAh batteries, and USB 2.0 Type-C ports.
They all supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC, feature fingerprint sensors, and have IP68 water and dust resistance ratings. And they support microSD cards up to 2TB.
The company says they also feature 7.1 channel 3D surround sound through headphones, thanks to “the same advanced DTS:X found in the V and G series” smartphones from LG.
Oh, and these new mid-range phones may have 18:9 displays with thin bezels and curved glass, but they lack one thing often found on contemporary high-end phones: a notch.
