LG does not seem the best at concealing secrets for its upcoming devices. With leaks flooding in for its flagship, the LG G3, well before its launch, it seems LG has let slip again on another upcoming device, the LG G3 Stylus.
In a bizarre turn of events, the outro of the LG G3 Beats device depicted the LG G3 and another device dubbed the LG G3 Stylus. We are looking at a device with a striking similarity to the LG G3, with the addition of a capacitive stylus displayed alongside it. The stylus is built in to the phone, with a docking space similar. Now LG hopes to deliver a new device with a stylus, we hope, in an attempt to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note series and other stylus based devices. However, with the stylus taking up quite a bit of space in a device with similar dimensions to the G3, we expect the specifications to take a hit.
The LG G3 Stylus will indeed be toned down from the flagship G3 as GSMArena have provided a details on the full specifications. It has a larger 5.7-inch screen than the G3 but with a lower resolution of 720 x 1280 resolution display, which means no more quad HD. As for memory, the device only has an 8GB storage and 1GB of RAM, with a memory card slot for expansion unannounced as of yet. Cameras are downgraded 8 megapixel rear-facing and 1.3 megapixel front-facing. The rear camera only has a single LED flash instead of dual and no laser autofocus, which were among the hallmarks of the G3. With a slower quad core 1.3 GHz reported and a smaller battery expected, the G3 stylus is overall weaker than the G3. In fact, it looks more appealing as a mid range alternative instead of a flagship.
The device is expected to be officially announced within the coming weeks, and launched quite possibly at IFA 2014, so it won’t be long before we get to see it up close.
