LG Confirms Stylus Successor; Bows Out of Note Competition Yet Again

February 17, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It was only a couple of weeks ago that we felt how lethargic LG was, ahead of the annual mobile gala at Barcelona. What they had up their sleeves was only a foldable case for the unconfirmed flagship G5 device.

Fast forward to now, and it appears that the South Korean manufacturer have become the one to present the most this year. Following the confirmation of G5, LG has now confirmed a series of devices that will be put forward at MWC, and it does include a revival of its phablet segment device, the Stylus.

The G4 Stylus that was outed last year, will be now having a successor. The Stylus 2, as it is called, will get its debut during MWC, and will feature some fine improvements in its core feature.


The digital pen this year will ditch the rubber-tip for a nano-coated tip, which the company says will improve precision. LG has also fine-tuned the software inside to make necessary amendments when your Stylus is put to action. Having your stylus removed off its slot will pop up shortcuts to Pop Memo and Pop Scanner. The device will also alert you when you have the smartphone in motion without the Stylus inserted in its slot, ensuring that you never leave the digital pen behind.

The hardware department still remains pretty much the same range which the initial Stylus featured. A 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 720p display, 1.5GB RAM, 13MP/8MP camera duo, 3000 mAh battery, and a storage of 16 GB is all what this 5.7-inch sized phablet brings forward.


This sounds bleak only when compared to the rest of the flagship stylus devices, say the Galaxy Note series. LG’s Stylus still hasn’t rose up to a flagship level, and is lurking around the mid-range segment.

But it’s also better to have a mid-range powered Stylus device, and LG could ooze out some big cash being the lone player in the segment.

The Stylus 2 also won’t be the only device which LG would present in the mid-range segment; the newly revealed X-series devices also would make it to the list.

The X-cam and X-screen devices will respectively adopt the dual-cam and always-on flagship feature from G5. All these devices will be unveiled for the first time during MWC, which will be taking place during the last week of February.
