LG has added another smartphone to its Q series with the launch of Q Stylus. As the name implies, the LG Q Stylus comes equipped with a stylus for inking and taking notes on the go.
The LG Q Stylus is part of South Korean company’s expanding Q series, which also includes the recently launched LG Q7, Q7α and LG Q7+. The LG Q Stylus follows on the design guidelines of LG V-series, and features a metallic unibody chassis. The smartphone is now IP68 water and dust resistant, and comes with MIL-STD 810G compliance as well. The smartphone also switches to USB Type-C for fast charging.
In terms of specifications, the LG Q Stylus features a 6.2-inch FullVision display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, and taller aspect ratio of 18:9. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.5GHz or 1.8GHz depending on the market. The Q Stylus comes in three variants that differ in terms of memory. The LG Q Stylus and Q Stylus α come with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, while the Q Stylus+ comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
They also come with different camera setup. The LG Q Stylus α gets a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera. The Q Stylus and the Q Stylus+ feature a 16-megapixel main and option between 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera.
The LG Q Stylus runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box, and is backed by a 3,300mAh battery. The smartphone supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, 4G LTE, and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Q Stylus also borrows support for DTS:X audio found in the V and G series for a 7.1 channel surround sound experience.
“The LG Q Stylus adds another dimension to our series of exceptionally-priced mid-range phones that deliver amazing value to consumers,” said Ha Jeung-uk, senior vice president and head of LG Electronics’ Mobile Business Division.
All three variants will be available in Moroccan Blue color, but the Q Stylus+ will also be available in Aurora Black and Lavender Violet colors. The Q Stylus will be available in Aurora Black color as well. LG says the Q Stylus will launch on a limited basis starting this month in North America and Asia. The availability will be followed by other key regions like Europe in the third quarter.
