LG's new Stylus 3 mid-ranger gets official CES 2017 announcement

At CES 2017, LG has officially unveiled the LG Stylo and Stylo Plus, a pair of smartphones that the company kind of pre-announced back in December. In America, the phones will be branded Stylo 3, while the rest of the world will have it branded as Stylus 3. The reasons behind the naming haven't been made clear.

Measuring 6 x 3.14 x 0.29in (155.6 x 79.8 x 7.4 mm) at a weight of 5.25oz (149g), the smartphones bundle styluses and feature the rare FM radio. To be sold in Metallic Titan and Pink Gold, the models have mid-range specs. The Stylo 3 Plus' spec sheet hasn't been published, but parameters for the Stylo 3 have been set free by LG.

The phone works on a MT6750 octa-core chip clocked to 1.5GHz and has a generously sized 5.7-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. There's a pair of 13MP and 8MP cameras rear and front, and the phone is fueled by a 3200mAh removable battery. In terms of connectivity, the device is outfitted with Wi-Fi (802.11 b, g, n), Bluetooth 4.2, and USB 2.0 Type B. It also boasts a fingerprint scanner.

The price and release dates for LG's new phones haven't been announced yet.

They should seriously stop making phones with less than 32 GB of memory

we are talking about entry level sub-$200 phone here, not a flagship... and people can simply get 32GB microSD for $10 and adopt it if they need more space... (while, there is a flagship with 32GB priced at $800 right now)

As of today, the LG Stylo 2 Plus on MetroPCS is on sale for $129.99. The normal price is $219.99. I would say this phone would retail at $249.99 tops.

But, LG's business strategy isn't same as Xiaomi and most Chinese OEMs who sell handsets with flagship-grade specs for mid-range prices.

2017 and LG still don't step up their battery capacities. 5.7" and 3200mah? That's 2013 technology right?

"2017 and LG still don't step up their battery capacities. 5.7" and 3200mah? That's 2013 technology right?" 2013 tech? But this LG Stylus 3 isn't a flagship device. Besides, there are phablets launched last year with sub-3200mAh batteries, most not notably the iPhone 7 Plus, which featured a sub-3000mAh battery! I guess we could as well see phablets with less than 3500mAh battery in 2017.

Although LG has announced the LG Stylus 3 on 22nd December, 2016 smartphone lovers will have to wait for 2-3 months to get their hands on it. The features of stylus 3 are really good.
