LG G3 Stylus to be released this quarter, won't be a high-end smartphone

LG yesterday revealed the existence of its G3 Stylus, a pretty large handset that obviously features a stylus pen. The device appeared in a promo video for the already-announced LG G3 Beat (also known as LG G3 s), a video that’s been removed in the meantime - though we still have a snapshot of it, included above. According to The Korea Times, the G3 Stylus should be launched this quarter, thus before the end of September.

Reportedly, the new handset sports a display of “around 5.5 inches”, but its features will be “slightly downgraded” compared to what the G3 flagship is offering. The G3 Stylus should have a lower screen pixel resolution, and a different battery size, being positioned as a budget smartphone. So it looks like this isn’t a direct competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 - which is expected to be officially announced on September 3 as one of this year’s most advanced large-screened smartphones.

We don’t know if the G3 Stylus will be released globally, or just in select markets. But we’ll probably find out more about this soon. It’s said that LG expects to sell at least 60 million smartphones this year, helped by the popularity of its G3 series.

It should have all been in one. But it make sense the specs are different.

Yup.
And should be not with this hot-dog stylus, but real, like S-Pen

Looks like the new device for Dr. Evil. It even comes with an giant, missile-like, stylus. Good job, LG.

Unnecessary but they want to compete with samsung... They are hardly close to winning.

Hmm... Cause that's how LG and Samsung roll... They make a hundred models with the flagship name... G3 beat, G3 stylus, G3 flash, galaxy avendator, galaxy blalalalala... Both these companies have been technological rivals for God knows how long. And seeing that G2 and G3 (and its various variables) look the same to me except for the finish, the G4 would look like this too... This goes for Sony too. They couldve gone with the arc design but decided to use that iphone 4 rip off and now z3 is coming with the same design. I would like to see HTC and Motorola to keep on making new designs cause otherwise the smartphone industry would really become monotonous. Nokia isn't on my list anymore cause I used a 920 for some time and it's boring that metro interface. After a while it became way monotonous. Everything about that UI seems to be on lockdown. There is no room to customize it. Live tiles and whatnot but at least give some more pages to add more tiles...

Well after the G2 LG phones have looked way different than Samsung. And Sony copies iPhone? Lol pathetic. First of all they look way different. Even though the materials are same. Secondly Sony had concepts similar to iPhone design before iPhone was even out...

Yeah. I loved Xperia P and U and Neo and a lot more phones but this is the 3rd Z phone with the same design... People say Samsung doesn't know how to design but at least they make some changes. The new Sony flagships are literally all same. Remember Arc S? The last Sony Ericsson phone? The only thing i didnt like about it was glossy plastic. The design was delicious though. Sony screwed themselves with TFT screens. Now it looks like they'll do it with Omnibalance. They can keep the same design but it's high time to choose a different material. Ceramics, leather, metals, polycarbonate (matte not gloss), kevlar, wood, etc. The list is endless. Why cant they just try something except for glass. It's not exciting anymore. And yup after G2 they have but G3 and G2 look the same. And now they'll make fifty others that'll look like em. Design evolves. But making one good design and using it on all the company's phones is plain boring. Exactly what Samsung has been doing ever since s3.
Edit: about the iPhone part. iPhone 4 had that glass thing going and having concepts doesn't mean anything if they are never released. It's not like concept cars. Phone concepts aren't usually showcased.

Not bad if G3 stylus is 1080 for screen resolution.

Looks like LG is using the Samsung tactic this year...
