LG has announced a new variant of its flagship G3 dubbed ‘LG G3 Stylus,’ just a week ahead of its expected IFA September debut.
The stylus-equipped LG G3 variant features a 5.5-inch qHD (540 x 960 pixels) display and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage expandable via a micro SD card.
There’s a 13-megapixel rear camera with the same Touch and Shoot, Gesture Shot, and Front Camera Light features as the G3 device. However, the new variant sports only a 1.3-megapixel font camera, down from 2.1-megapixels on the G3. The handset, which measures 149.3×75.9×10.2mm and weighs 163 grams, packs a 3,000mAh removable battery.
LG noted that the stylus claimed to be ‘the Rubberdium stylus pen’ is comfortable in any hand and perfect for “endless jotting, doodling, and sketching with precision.” The G3 Stylus will come loaded with a number of apps that can take advantage of the Rubberdium stylus pen.
QuickMemo+, Dual Window, Smart Keyboard, Gesture Shot, and Knock Code are some of the LG G3’s software features that will be made available on the G3 Stylus as well.
Available in black, gold and white colour variants, the G3 Stylus will be rolled out in 3G markets starting in Brazil in September followed by a release in Asia, Middle East and Africa and CIS. Prices will be announced at the time of launch.
