LG has introduced Stylus 2, successor of last year’s G4 Stylus, ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona next week. It has a 5.7-inch HD in-cell touch display, is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), has a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It has a 7.4mm thin body with a metal frame and is just 145 grams.
It comes with a stylus pen, similar to earlier LG Stylus phones, but the new nano-coated tip promises more accuracy compared to the previous rubber-tipped pen. The Pen Pop feature toggles a pop-up menu when the stylus is removed to offer shortcuts to Pop Memo and Pop Scanner. The Pen Keeper prevents the stylus from being misplaced by displaying a pop-up message when the phone is detected as being in motion when the stylus bay is empty. “The new Calligraphy Pen font will let you write as beautifully and decoratively as if using a fountain pen,” said LG.
