LG G Stylo announced with 2TB microSD support

LG G Stylo

Styluses and phablets go together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s only natural that more manufacturers get in on the stylus action begun by the Galaxy Note series. LG produced a somewhat underwhelming handset with a stylus last year, and now they’re back with a new one called the LG G Stylo.

The LG G Stylo is essentially the successor to last year’s LG G3 Stylus, and it’s set to make its debut next month. If you’re looking for a device to go heads up with the Note 4 – this isn’t it. Unfortunately, the LG G Stylo is a mid-range smartphone, although it’s an oddball considering it has one feature you won’t find on the Galaxy Note series or any other flagship.

Storage space is always a concern on a mobile device, but it won’t be with the LG G Stylo. The smartphone will support microSD cards up to 2TB, which is insane and what we would call “future proof” as nobody is selling 2TB microSD cards at the moment. What you really get under the hood in terms of storage is 8GB, so that microSD card slot will definitely come in handy.

The rest of the LG G Stylo specs include a new 64-bit Snapdragon 410, 1GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery. The rear camera is listed at 8MP, while the front-facing snapper makes use of a 5MP sensor. As for the display, you’re getting a 5.7-inch 720p panel which should play nice with the 3,000mAh battery and the aforementioned stylus. The LG G Stylo measures 154.3mm x 79.2mm x 9.6mm with a weight of 163grams, and runs Android 5.0 out of the box.

The LG G Stylo will make its debut this Friday in South Korea with a rumored price tag of 500,000 won, which comes out to roughly $460 in U.S. greenbacks. The Stylo will roll out to other countries in May, but there’s been no word on the states or Europe at this time.
