LG has officially confirmed the release of Stylo 3 at CES 2017, and it will be the latest stylus-toting mid-ranger smartphone. Going back to December last year when LG proved that the company couldn’t wait for CES 2017 by pre-announcing all the smartphones, which will be planned on showing in Las Vegas these days. Among those was the Stylus 3 phablet, the successor to the Stylus 2 from last year.
And today the Korean company has officially confirmed the same device once more, but this time for the US market. In addition, like its predecessors, it will have different names. In America, the codename of the product will be called Stylo 3 (like the Stylo 2 before), while other markets will get the branding of the Stylus 3. Why LG is continuing to give this line of handsets in two different yet incredibly similar names until now we don’t know, but that’s how things are anyway.
Like the Stylus 3 introduced before, the Stylo 3 also comes with a 5.7-inch HD display. Inside the device is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 SoC with a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The chipset is packed with 3GB of RAM, 16GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expandable via a micro SD card slot. On the back is a 13 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper. Other smart connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, NFC, and GPS with A-GPS are also included. The Stylo 3 will be powered by a 3,200 mAh removable battery and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, which is an impressive point in the mid-range smartphone territory. It will be available in Metallic Titan and Pink Gold color options, but the pricing and the release time are still a secret for now.
