While the LG is prepping to launch its G4 flagship in less than week, it has announced another phone in the meantime: the LG G Stylo. Think of it as a Galaxy Note rival made affordable.

It’s reportedly the successor to last year’s G3 Stylus to a certain extent. (Rumors suggest that there might be a real successor that’ll be aptly called the G4 Stylus. But here we are with the LG G Stylo for now.) The “Stylo” in the name, though suggestive of the stylus feature, actually is a play on “style” and “stylish.”

As an Android smartphone, the LG G Stylo is a midrange device with a 5.7-inch 720p IPS display. It comes packing a Snapdragon 410, a system-on-a-chip with four Cortex-A53 cores, 64-bit architecture, 1.5GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, and Adreno 306 graphics. Besides having a stylus, the G Stylo is notable for having microSD support up to a whopping 2TB. There seems to be no microSD cards with that capacity in the market at the moment, but at least the Stylo is ready when the time comes.

In addition, the LG G Stylo has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, which is inferior to the G3 Stylus’ 13-megapixel shooter, and a 5-megapixel front camera. It’s quite big even for a phablet, measuring 154.3 x 79.2 x 9.6mm. Available in titanium and white colors, this handset also offers 8GB of internal storage and 3000mAh removable battery. Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed with the company’s UX skin running on top.

The LG G Stylo is first headed to South Korea for 400,000 KRW (approx. Php16,300). It’ll expand to international markets on May 5, but LG hasn’t mentioned any further details.
