LG has just unveiled the successor of LG Stylus 2 at CES 2017 named LG Stylus 3. Though this phone has already been announced back in December, LG opted to relaunch this phone at CES again. The company is calling it Stylo 3 in the US market, while it remains to be called Stylus 3 for the rest of the world.

LG Stylus 3 Specifications

The LG Stylus 3 is the mid-range option. It comes with a 5.7 inch IPS LCD featuring HD resolution. You get a pixel density of ~258 PPI. The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with LG’s custom skin on top.

Powering the phone is an octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 Mediatek MT6750 processor with Mali-T860MP2 GPU. The phone features 3 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. You can expand the internal storage up to 256 GB using a microSD card.

The LG Stylus 3 sports a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash and full HD recording support. It comes with a 5 MP camera on the front.

A Fingerprint sensor, dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, GPS and FM Radio round off the phone’s features. It is powered by a 3200 mAh battery and comes with a microUSB v2.0 port for charging and data transfer.

Initial Impressions

LG opting for Mediatek chipset is slightly confusing, as the previous version of the phone came with a Snapdragon processor under the hood. Nevertheless, Mediatek MT6750 is powerful processor and has four extra cores compared to Snapdragon 410. Also, there has been a considerable upgrade in the RAM segment; the Stylus 3 comes with 3GB RAM, i.e., 1.5 GB more than Stylus 2. Fingerprint addition is icing on the cake. However, display resolution still stuck at HD in 2017 for a 5.7-inch phone, which is a little low for a mid-range phone.

LG has not revealed any pricing and availability details yet. We should know more closer to the India launch.
