LG has revealed its latest entry in the mid-range smartphone arena – the Stylus 3.
Not a lot of smartphones in this price range have stylus built-in but this device has one. The LG Stylus 3 (also known as Stylo in the US) even has dedicated apps which can be used in conjuction with the pen. The stylus can be used for taking notes and it has a 1.8mm diameter fibre tip for a more fluid writing experience. It can also do screen-off writing, automatic memo, and detect if the stylus pen is too far from the handset.
It’s fairly large with its 5.7-inch IPS 720p screen with a pixel density of 258. A MediaTek chipset runs inside the handset with the help of 3GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage. There’s 4G LTE connectivity as well as capable 13-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras.
