LG recently unveiled the LG G Stylo (known as the LG G4 Stylus outside of North America and Korea), barely a month after revealing the LG G4. As the name suggests, this flagship will arrive with a Stylus to assist in writing and drawing on-screen. Will this smartphone have what it takes to compete with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Note series? Find out what we know so far about the LG G Stylo price, release date, specs and features.

LG G Stylo design

The design of the LG G Stylo lies somewhere between that of the LG G4 and LG G3, and it comes in two colors: silver and white. It features a slightly bigger display than that of the LG G4 at 5.7 inches compared to 5.5 inches, and its corners are a little rounder.

LG G Stylo specs

The LG G Stylo is notable for its stylus, but at this point we don't have a clear understanding of what software LG has integrated (if any) to use in combination with it. The Galaxy Note series uses the Air Command submenu which houses a number of additional features compared to the standard TouchWiz software, but it appears that the LG Stylo might only use the stylus for the potential speed/accuracy benefits.

This isn't the first time LG has dabbled in creating a smartphone with a stylus, only last year it introduced the poorly received LG G3 Stylus, which we half-expected to be the last in the series. We hope the G Stylo has more to offer.

    According to, and the phone was announced on April 29th, and released in May 1st, People on youtube have already reviewed it several times. I guess he was referring to the fact that it sounded like it was a brand new future phone.
    In addition both chipset and model numbers are already out as well, but it's not included in this article.

      Where was I misleading? Thanks for you comment but I don't understand. This is the LG G Stylo - how could it have been available since April 29? It didn't even get announced until May 19. :S

        update this plz. LG is a company to watch... Incidentally I'm quite pleased with mine. The stylus comes in handy in multiple ART programs! E.g.-Corel, Picsart, etc. And, of course, more advanced Programs.
        This is where the phablet versatility comes into play.
