LG has today announced a new stylus driven smartphone in Korea, announcing the LG Stylo.
The name is a combination of the words Stylus – obviously drawing on the stylus driven software – and the Stylish design of the phone, combining to give ‘Stylo’. The phone sits in the mid-range when it comes to specs, but offers users wanting more control of their input an option in the lower end of the range.
Hardware wise the phone will be available in options of Titanium or White colour choices, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon powering the phone. The Stylo comes with a 5.7″ HD display with in-cell touch for added sensitivity, which will allow users a large and sensitive work space to use the rubber tipped stylus on.
Also included will be a range of software customisations such as ‘Gesture Shot’, as well as Q Memo Plus widget for the home screen to add more functionality for the stylus.
The full spec list for the Stylo will include:
- 5.7″ HD IPS display (258ppi)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Processor (1.2GHz, Quad Core)
- 1.5GB RAM
- 8GB onboard storage with Micro SD slot (up to 2TB)
- 8MP rear camera / 5MP front camera
