LG Stylus 2 was today launched with a big 5.7 inch display and 4G LTE support. The successor of the original G4 Stylus will be shown off at the Mobile World Congress later this week. The Stylus 2 comes with a brand new nano-coated tip on the stylus. According to LG, this helps to improve the accuracy of the stylus compared to the regular rubber-coated tip.
The LG Stylus 2 comes before the MWC event kicks off later this week. Only yesterday, LG announced the X Cam and X Screen, with “exceptional features in a affordable smartphone”. LG is also preparing to launch the G5 at the Mobile World Congress this week, so things are a little busy at the Korean company’s offices.
