LG Stylus 2 announced as an "exceptionally-priced" Android Marshmallow smartphone
Later this month, at MWC 2016, LG will showcase several new smartphones: besides the G5 flagship, and the X series (including the X cam and X screen), we're now learning that the South Korean company is also going to show us a successor to last year's LG G Stylo (aka G4 Stylus). This successor is called LG Stylus 2, and, just like the G4 Stylus / G Stylo, it's far from being a high-end device, though it seemingly looks better (thanks to a streamlined design that includes a metal frame).

As its name suggests, the LG Stylus 2 comes with a stylus pen - one that's been improved with a "nano-coated tip", which, according to LG, offers greater accuracy compared to rubber-tipped pens.

The Stylus 2 sports the same 5.7-inch 720p display that we can find on the G Stylo, though it's thinner (7.4 mm) and lighter (145 grams) than its predecessor. The new handset doesn't offer too many upgraded features - it's still got a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (we assume it's the Snapdragon 410), LTE connectivity, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery. There's a little bit more RAM on the Stylus 2, though (1.5 GB, compared to just 1 GB on the G Stylo), while the cameras have been bumped to 13 MP (rear) and 8 MP (front).

The LG Stylus 2 will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, coming in three color variants: white, titan, and brown. LG says that the Stylus 2 will be "exceptionally-priced", but for now we don't know exactly what that means, and neither when and where the smartphone is going to be available. These details will probably be revealed at MWC, so stay tuned.
