Will the LG G4 have a stylus? Rumors say yes

Will the LG G4 have a stylus? Rumors say yes
Not long ago, we told you that LG had filed a trademark application for the “G Pen” name, obviously with the intention of using it to designate a new stylus. Now, we’re hearing that the company’s next flagship smartphone, most probably called LG G4, might be one of the handsets that will feature such a stylus.

According to Chinese website ITHome, LG may include a stylus among the features of the G4 in order to allow the new smartphone to directly compete against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.

Of course, a stylus pen would make the G4 significantly different from the G3 and its predecessors. Interestingly, it’s said that the G4 could sport a 5.3-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display - smaller than the 5.5-inch screen of the G3. Other expected features: Android 5.0 Lollipop, 20.7 MP rear camera, Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3500 mAh battery. There’s no word on when the G4 is supposed be announced, but it could happen in the first half of 2015.

As always when it comes to rumors, we have to be skeptical about all this. Nevertheless, the idea of an LG G4 with a G Pen stylus is interesting. Wouldn’t you agree?

P.S.: Pictured above is the LG G3 Stylus, a cheaper, less advanced variant of the LG G3.

LG is probably another big company after all these Chinese companies which tries to copy other big names and suck at it. Why LG why you have to bring a stylus??

Don't care one way or another about the stylus, but I hope the specs listed hold true, I like LG, my G2 has worked flawlessly and am anxiously awaiting the G4.

The ONLY feature that would've lured me to upgrade from G3 to G4 was the Front Facing Dual speakers that were speculated a while ago. Now no mention of them anymore as a possible addition. As they say.....I'm Out.
