LG Stylus 2 launches this week in Korea, price revealed
LG today announced the release of the Stylus 2, a brand new smartphone that was first unveiled last month as a successor to the G Stylo / G4 Stylus from last year. For now, the LG Stylus 2 is launching only in South Korea, where it's going on sale this week for around $328 (396,000 KRW in local currency). According to Korean website Yonhap News, later this month, the handset should also be released in North America and Europe.

Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the LG Stylus 2 is a pretty large device, as it sports a 5.7 inch display (with 720 x 1280 pixels and 258 ppi). The handset is built around a metallic frame, and obviously comes with a stylus pen - an enhanced one that offers increased accuracy thanks to a nano-coated tip. The new pen also benefits from a feature called Pen Keeper, which displays "a popup message when the phone is detected as being in motion when the stylus bay is empty" - thus preventing users from losing the pen.

The Stylus 2 is powered by an unknown quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, further featuring LTE connectivity, a 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. There's 2 GB of RAM on the Korean Stylus 2, but the handset may have only 1.5 GB of RAM in other markets.

Last year's LG G Stylo is currently sold in the US for around $290 (off contract), so we assume that the Stylus 2 will have a similar price when (and if) it lands stateside. We'll let you know when we hear more about this.

No, it's a capacitive pen.

I would've expected it to be influenced by the G5 somehow but I guess not
