LG G3 Stylus which showed up in an advertisement few weeks back is now official ahead of IFA 2014. It is not the Note 4 competitor it was supposed to be but is a trimmed down LG G3 variant with a capacitive stylus.
The display is same 5.5 Inches in size housed in a similar casing but with only qHD (quarter HD, not Quad HD as in LG G3). 960 X 540 pixels do seem scarce on a phablet sized display (200 PPI).
The processor used is 1.3 GHz Quad Core (Mediatek MT6582?) aided by 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. Yes, a microSD card slot is also present to supplement internal storage. The modest chipset will fuel resource efficient Android 4.4 Kitkat on the device in order to augment internal storage.
The camera hasn’t been trimmed down as brutally. The LG G3 Stylus still houses a 13 MP rear camera without Laser focus, of course. On the front side a 1.3 MP unit is present for video calling. Battery capacity is decent 3000 mAh while other common set of features include 3G HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
Smartphone market is now shifting towards budget price range and LG has played its card right by launching a mid range variant cashing in on the flagship Moniker. However LG should have provided with at least HD resolution for the large sized display.
