There’s a new pen-wielding smartphone coming soon to US prepaid operator MetroPCS, but its intentions are not to give Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 a run for its money. In case it looks familiar, the impending LG Stylo 4 seems little more than a rebranded Q Stylus, apparently packing a modest 2GB RAM and housing 32 gigs of data internally.

Curiously, those two unimpressive numbers are to be paired with an unnamed 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is actually the higher-end option of the recently unveiled LG Q Stylus family.

It’s worth remembering that we saw both a Stylo 3 and Stylo 3 Plus released on different US networks last year, the former of which currently costs $130 at Boost Mobile, while the latter is sold for $149 by MetroPCS.

 

This particular LG Stylo 4 variant is expected to go on sale next Monday, June 18, at an unspecified price, with a 6.2-inch “FullVision” display in tow that we hope will follow the Q Stylus’s suit in sporting FHD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels).

Other unremarkable features pretty much etched in stone already include a 13MP rear-facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus capabilities, 5MP wide-angle selfie shooter, Android 8.1 Oreo software, microSD support, AI-based QLens functionality, and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound technology. Of course, at the right price, the Stylo 4, with its “improved stylus experience”, could prove to be a very smart buy.




Adrian has had an insatiable passion for writing since he was in school and found himself writing philosophical essays about the meaning of life and the differences between light and dark beer. Later, he realized this was pretty much his only marketable skill, so he first created a personal blog (in Romanian) and then discovered his true calling, which is writing about all things tech (in English).
