LG Stylo 4 to bring an improved stylus experience to T-Mobile and MetroPCS
LG is getting ready to release a new affordable Android smartphone in the US. Called LG Stylo 4, the new handset will succeed the Stylo 3 and Stylo 3 Plus, both launched in 2017.
While LG has yet to confirm the existence of the Stylo 4, a leaked brochure - revealed by user LoJoGalaxy over at AndroidForums - allows us to take a look at most the phone's specs. This comes not long after we've seen a render of the LG Stylo 4, showing its front side.
Sporting a 6.2-inch TFT display (apparently with 1080 x 1920 pixels), the new phone is the largest in the Stylo series to date. Far from being a powerhouse, the LG Stylo 4 should be a decent choice for customers in need of a budget handset that features a stylus pen. Speaking of it, the stylus experience has been "improved" on the new device, but it remains to be seen exactly what that means.
The Stylo 4 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.8 GHz (this could be a Snapdragon 652, or a Snapdragon 450). The smartphone further offers a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP wide-angle front camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3,300 mAh battery. Android 8.1 Oreo is pre-installed out of the box, and, hopefully, an update to Android P won't be too much to ask for.
The price of the LG Stylo 4 remains unknown. However, since the LG Stylo 3 Plus was released for $179, we think the new phone won't cost more than $200.
It's said that the LG Stylo 4 will be available on T-Mobile and MetroPCS starting June 18, so that's when we'll likely find out all about it. As previously reported, the handset should also be released on Cricket Wireless, but it's not clear exactly when this will happen.
