Samsung’s high-end Galaxy Note smartphone ship with a stylus. But if you want a stylus-enabled phone that doesn’t cost as much as $1,000, LG has been offering mid-range stylus phones for a few years.

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.

  1. Should be noted that this isn’t a pressure-sensitive Wacom stylus like the ones Samsung has in the Note phones, it’s just a regular capacitive one that’s bundled with the phone. Anyone expecting to do any drawing with Sketchbook or the like might end up pretty disappointed.

  2. Finally!! Been waiting years for a stylus phone in this bracket. Why LG and Samsung are the only manufacturers in this market is beyond me.

  3. LG describes the Q Stylus as a mid-range phone “with premium features.”

    since its LG, its more like mid range phone “with premium price”

    1. The press release says (in the specs) that it supports microSD cards up to 2 TB.
