LG launches Stylus 2 Plus with fingerprint sensor and upgraded specs

LG today announced the arrival of LG Stylus 2 Plus featuring upgraded internal specifications despite retaining the size and look of the Stylus 2.

LG Stylus 2 Plus brings in a more powerful processor, upgraded RAM, a better rear camera and a higher resolution display compared to the Stylus 2.

RIP FM radio: LG Stylus 2 with DAB+ is here

Launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, LG Stylus 2 was the world's first smartphone with DAB+ radio which offered access to more radio channels than traditional FM and didn't consume any data in the process. The phone also drew eyeballs thanks to its large display, an upgraded front camera and a new nano-coated stylus pen for greater accuracy.

While the just-launched Stylus 2 Plus retains the display size, battery, front camera, dimensions and weight of the Stylus 2, it features a Full HD display resolution compared to an HD one in the latter, a 1.4 GHz octa-core processor compared to a 1.2 GHz Quad-core one in the latter, up to 3GB of RAM compared to just 1.5GB in the latter and up to 32GB of internal storage compared to 16GB in the latter.

LG Stylus 2 Plus will be available in two variants- one with a 32GB/3GB storage and RAM combination and a cheaper one with a 16GB/2GB combination. Both variants will also feature fingerprint sensors unlike the Stylus 2 and will be available in a new Gold colour finish. The pricier variant will also feature a more capable 16MP rear camera compared to a 13MP one in the cheaper variant.

“The LG Stylus 2 Plus offers users a spacious screen, powerful multimedia functionality and a writing experience at a competitive price. It’s just another example of the constant refinements we’re making to our mobile products to give LG customers a wide variety of features and designs to choose from,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company.

Launched in Taiwan today, LG Stylus 2 Plus will roll out in other regions including Europe in the coming months. LG has not announced how much its variants will cost but we expect pricing to be confirmed by the time the phones will be launched in the UK.
