LG reveals mid-range LG G3 Stylus, more details coming at IFA

Summary: LG's sneak peak video last week showed a G3 with a stylus that we thought would be a direct Note 4 competitor, but that turned out not to be the case.

Samsung will be revealing the Galaxy Note 4 at the start of IFA in Berlin and last week we saw a LG teaser showing the LG G3 Stylus. The image appeared to be a slightly larger G3 with a stylus so it was assumed it was going to be a Note 4 competitor.

Android Central posted the LG press release officially announcing the LG G3 Stylus and as you can see it is actually a mid-range device with a 5.5 inch qHD display (960 x 540 pixels), 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 13 megapixel camera, 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage.

While LG posted the press release, the LG G3 Stylus will be launched at IFA with pricing and availability information.

While many of the internal specs appear mid-range, the 13 megapixel camera has many of the same great features seen in the LG G3. Knock Code, LG Smart Keyboard, Dual Window, QuickMemo+, and Gesture Shot is included.

  • LG Note could have been a competitor

    The Note 4 based on presumed specs appear once again to be an unstoppable powerhouse in this very selective niche area.

    While I love to see bleeding edge technology, I also enjoy competition as it offers more choices at better price points.

    I felt LG would have been a likely candidate to offer flagship choices to compete with Samsung. The G3 is such a device while the G3 Note is sadly not.

    While Sammy is the ring to shoot for in regards to bleeding edge tech in the Android community IMHO, their build and appearances are less than spectacular.

    For the same reasons, I had hoped that Sammy's Alpha would have put S5 specs into a classy encasement, but sadly like LG, chose not to compete in that market.

    My purchase of the LG G3 could easily have changed (and waited for) either the Alpha or G3 Note, had they chosen flagship specs.

    Sadly, our choices are reduced a bit to niche products and markets.
