LG has announced a new successor to the G4 Stylus simply called the Stylus 2. It’s meant to be a mid-range device with pen capability, sort of a step under the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 both in specs and in price. It has many Note-like features, such as a popup menu when you remove the stylus, an alert when you leave your stylus behind, and popup apps for note-taking.
The device features a 1280×720 5.7-inch display, a 1.2GHz quad core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with a microSD card, 8MP front and 13MP rear camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s definitely no powerhouse, and the display seems to be the weakest link here.
The device will be shown off at Mobile World Congress, and hopefully we’ll get more details on it. A price would be useful in seeing where the device stands in the LG lineup. Though it’s not the high end device most of us want, it’s still good that LG is bringing mid range devices with high end features like the stylus. There’s definitely a market for that.
