LG Launches LG G3 Stylus Stylus-Enabled Variant, Ready To Take On The Galaxy Note

LG's been on a bit of a roll latel. Hot on the heels of introducing the G3 Beat and G Vista, and teasing a round-faced Android Wear smartwatch to compete with the Moto 360, the South Korean electronics maker today announced yet another new device, the LG G3 Stylus. Similar in design to the original LG G3 (but not in specs), the Stylus variant adds pen support to the large 5.5-inch qHD (960x540) IPS display.

As far as form goes, the G3 Stylus retains the same "Floating Arc" tapered edges, thin bezels, and metallic skin design first introduced in the original G3. Now with a proprietary Rubberdium stylus added to the mix, users can jot down notes, doodle, sketch with ease, and more.

"With its exceptional hardware and exceptional price that can’t be beat, the LG G3 Stylus is in a category all by itself," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "The LG G3 Stylus is the perfect tool for consumers who don’t want to be bogged down carrying a laptop, tablet and smartphone. It gets things done and lets you have fun while doing without having to compromise on quality, style or user experience."

Powering the 5.5-inch display is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The G3 Stylus also sports 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 1.3MP front-facing caemera, 13MP rear-facing camera, removable 3,000mAh battery, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

The LG G3 Stylus will initially roll out in 3G markets in Brazil starting in September, followed by countries in Asia, Middle East, and Africa. No word on price or when (or whether) the G3 Stylus will eventually makes its way stateside.
