LG unveiled a new mid-range smartphone dubbed LG Stylo 3, which is up for grabs in the US via T-Mobile. The phone costs $225 and can be purchased without a contract. However, if you don’t want to pay the full amount upfront, you can get it for $9 down and $9 a month for 24 months. T-Mobile also has some on-demand plan up its sleeves wherein qualified customers can get the phone for $0 upfront and $10 a month. It also bundles a stylus pen called Pen Pop 2.0 so that users can select options, write, take quick screenshots, and draw on its 5.7-inch 1080p touchscreen.
Specs-wise, the LG Stylo 3 comes with Android Nougat operating system out of the box. Inside is a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 octa-core chip in addition to 2GB of RAM and Adreno 505 GPU for graphics. Internally, there is also 32GB of built-in storage that is expandable up to 2TB using a microSD card slot. As far as photography is concerned, it houses a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone packs a 3,080mAh battery and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Well, it seems more of an alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup.
A couple of months ago, LG launched the Stylus 3 in India, which is retailing on Amazon at Rs 17,000. As the name suggests, it comes with a bundled stylus.
