LG G3 Stylus is now official: qHD display, quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 3G connectivity
Earlier this month, we told you that LG was coming out with a lower priced version of its LG G3 flagship model, called the LG G3 Stylus. LG played hide and seek with this phone on a promotional video, and finally made it official on Tuesday morning in Korea. The screen size remains the same as on the LG G3, but with the Stylus, the resolution is 540 x 960 as opposed to the 1440 x 2560 on the flagship model. If you want to look at it another way, the flagship version of the LG G3 has a qHD screen. Who would have thought that a lower case "q" would make such a big difference.

A quad-core 1.3GHz GPU powers the Stylus, which includes 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. A microSD slot allows you to add memory, and the back and front cameras weigh in at 13MP and 1.3MP respectively. Keeping the phone powered up is a 3000mAh battery. A stylus comes with the handset (hence its name), and Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed, out of the box. The LG G3 Stylus will have 3G connectivity and will be available in black, white and gold.

The features on the phone include Dual Window, which allows you to open up two apps at the same time. Smart Keyboard learns the way you type, and reduces errors by as much as 75%. The two steps you normally use to take a picture, are reduced to one with Touch and Shoot. Tap the device to focus, and to activate the shutter, in just one move. KnockCode allows you to come up with a pattern of up to eight taps to unlock the handset. And lastly, with Gesture Shot you open and close your hand in front of the lens to start a three-second countdown, that will result in a picture being captured.

The LG G3 Stylus will launch next month in 3G markets in Brazil. Other locations to follow include Asia, Middle East and Africa, and CIS. Pricing and availability will be announced with each local launch.

Now if this phone actually shot the stylus out like a bullet, these features would be much more fun: "Touch and Shoot. Tap the device to focus, and to activate the stylus trigger in just one move." "Gesture Shot enables you to open and close your hand in front of the lens to start a three-second countdown, that will result in the stylus being fired without any further action."

Note 4's stylus is 1000 light years ahead compare to LG's stylus.

Sharper and pointier, I would guess. More of an armor piercing stylus? ;-)

LG shouldn't let their G series be filled with useless mid-rangers, they shouldn't learn that from Samsung, which has made the public perception of their galaxy series as cheap

so what's special about the stylus? does it have pressure sensor of any kind? or is it just a normal stylus that you can buy anywhere?

qHD on a 5.5" display? Wouldn't take it for free...

Then you're obviously not the the targeted demographic. Depends on where they price the thing.

qHD is roughly 1/7 of QHD Very huge downgrade

What a piece of watered-down crap, shame on LG for using the G3 branding! and it's just a stylus ala Tegra Note? not a wacom digitizer? the price of this thing should not exceed beyond $250, else it's just a money-grab ...BUYERS BEWARE!

LG somehow wants to dupe consumers by incorporating the same design, same branding as the G3 plus a stylus! If you don't know squat about screen resolution and whatnot you'll be easily fooled by this to-good-to-be-true Note wannabe.

1. It's a G3 2. It has a stylus 3. It's way cheaper Then by all means, to the uninitiated, this should sell very well

Horrible phone.A watered-down flagship?Even the mini versions of Samsung and HTC are better.LG is trying hard with the Samsung trend,hopefully they will not succeed.LG3 and Nexus 5 are their best phones and they will ruin their little success and acclaim with gimmicks like this.

should have been 1.3 ghz CPU, instead of GPU in second para first line.

the bottom bezel being larger makes the phone look bulkier and the design makes it look kinda chubby. they shouldve kept the front uniform
