LG has made it a point with its recent phones to show that it welcomes smartphone users with all needs. Its already-diverse portfolio is getting even larger today, with the introduction of the budget-friendly LG G Stylo. The device (as the name implies) carries a stylus as one of its headlining features, though the meaning is twofold – LG says it also refers to the phone being “stylish”.
Let’s first talk about that stylus. It’s throwing in a Q Memo Plus widget with the G Stylo, which can be used to take notes using the new-and-improved writing utensil. LG notes that the display of the phone has been outfitted with improved touch sensors to help with stylus input.
Moving on to specs, the G Stylo offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, clocked at 1.2 GHz across four processing cores. The phone has a 5.7-inch IPS HD display with a pixels-per-inch count of 258. There’s an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facer. The battery is a 3,000 mAh removable unit, and there’s support for LTE. The Stylo offers 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, though it has microSD support. It ships with Android 5.0, Lollipop.
The phone will begin availability in Latin America on May 5.
