LG surprised its phablet fans all around the world several days prior to one of the biggest mobile exhibitions by announcing the LG Stylus 2, which is a slight upgrade to it’s 2015 predecessor, the LG G4 Stylus.
The recently announced phablet steps into the spotlight with very subtle enhancements over its previous generation, and possesses the following specifications, as provided by LG.
- Display: 5.7-inch HD In-Cell Touch (1280 x 720)
- Chipset: 1.2GHz Quad-Core
- Camera: Rear 13MP / Front 8MP
- Memory: 1.5GB LPDDR3 RAM / 16GB ROM / MicroSD
- Battery: 3,000mAh (removable)
- Operating System: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Size: 155 x 79.6 x 7.4mm
- Weight: 145g
- Network: LTE / HSPA+ / GSM
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n / Bluetooth 4.1 / USB 2.0

While this year’s variation rocks the same screen size, resolution, and rear-end camera, LG has lightened the phone and improved its front-facing camera from 5 MP to 8 MP. Users will also have the possibility to the recently released Android Marshmallow 6.0, which will come right out of the box. However, one of the biggest adjustments that LG is boasting is an improved pen, with a nano-coated tip, which will significantly improve accuracy when writing on the screen.
With the LG Stylus 2, the company aims to continue with the original’s impressive battery life while also aiming for improved performance, which was often regarded as sluggish. The newest phablet hopes to continue to operate at a premium level, while maintaining its reasonable and mid-level price.
The LG Stylus 2 will make its first physical appearance at MWC 2016, which kicks off February 21, 2016.
