LG G4 Stylus launches this weekend

LG’s “Stylus” line is becoming what the Galaxy Note series is to Galaxy S flagships, but with one important difference: features. Unlike Samsung’s Notes, the Styluses aren’t equipped with the same or even higher specs than the current LG flagship.

The G4 Stylus is simply a budget option with a stylus, specifically LG’s own brand of “Rubberdium” Stylus that is simply its own take on the stubby capacitive poking instrument. The G4 Stylus is a phablet compared to the G4 itself, no doubt about that. But don’t go looking for QHD or even Full HD here. That 5.7-inch screen can only boast of HD resolutions.

The LG G4 Stylus is driven by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor in LTE variants, while 3G-only ones will get a faster 1.3 GHz octa-core. RAM is capped at 1 GB and storage at 8 GB, the latter expandable with a microSD card. Thankfully like the flagship, the 3,000 mAh battery is removable. The 13 megapixel rear camera (for the LTE version, the 3G model only has 8 MP) is at least interesting thanks to the Laser Autofocus system that LG debuted in the LG G3. The 5 megapixels on the front camera will surely appeal to selfie lovers. Android 5.0 comes out of the box, along with a host of LG’s custom User Experience features. It is available come this weekend, at approximately R3999 at leading retailers and network providers.
