LG launch two mid-range G4 siblings for UK customers
As per LG, Stylus 2 is a direct upgrade to the G4 Stylus that was unveiled in May of last year. With a 5.7-inch display, G4 Stylus came with LG's Rubberdium™ Stylus which you can use for note taking and drawing on the phone's screen. G4 Stylus also featured a removable 3,000 mAh battery, Quad-core and octa-core processors for LTE and 3G variants, 13MP and 5MP cameras, 8GB of storage and a microSD slot.
LG Stylus 2 retains the size of G4 Stylus but comes with a new nano-coated pen for greater accuracy than the one which came with its predecessor. Other upgrades include an upgraded front camera, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and twice the internal storage and RAM. LG has chosen to retain the processor, the rear camera and the battery and has decided not to launch a 3G variant unlike with the G4 Stylus.

LG Stylus 2 will also launch with a Pen Keeper feature which will alert you through a pop up message if the phone is in motion with an empty Stylus bay. This will ensure that you do not lose or misplace the stylus while travelling.
While G4 Stylus was available in Metallic Silver and Floral White colours, LG will sell Stylus 2 in Titan, White and Brown colours. Stylus 2 will also be much lighter and thinner than G4 Stylus, letting you hold and operate it with greater ease.
“LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone at a price of a mid-tier phone. This device is another example of our commitment to the mass-tier segment where there is so much opportunity for growth and creativity,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Brace for two new flagship phones from LG this year!
While Stylus 2 offers a phablet-sized display and similar functionality as Samsung's Galaxy Note 5, it comes nowhere near in terms of specifications. With a limited RAM, storage and processor, we expect the Stylus 2 to sell at a mid-range price and come as a cheaper alternative for G5 enthusiasts.
