T-Mobile has announced that they will start offering the new LG Stylo 3 Plus, a new phablet device from LG.
The LG Stylo 3 Plus looks like the company’s subtle take on Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. However, the subtle announcement and availability suggest that this new smartphone is on the midrange side. That’s why despite its stylus, it’s not a direct competitor of the Note series.
Just like Samsung’s phablet, this phone also has a large display at 5.7-inches with 1920 x 1080 resolution. And of course, there’s also a stylus tied to it.
Furthermore, the device also has a fingerprint scanner at the back for added value. There’s also a decent-sized 13-megapixel camera at the back for taking photos. A 3080mAh battery with fast charging powers everything, and it runs under the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
But on the downside, it only sports a slightly underpowered chipset. The phone is being carried by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 CPU, a processor that was released last year and intentionally created for midrange handsets.
