LG G3 Stylus adds stylus to lower-specification G3 Beat

LG is going after Samsung's Galaxy Note line, by launching a stylus-equipped smartphone modeled on the LG G3. Revealed before IFA, the LG G3 Stylus takes after the G3 Beat by offering a large 960x540 5.5-inch display, a similar design, and lower specifications compared to the flagship device, though this time LG adds its Rubberidium stylus to the smartphone.

Inside is a quad-core 1.3GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. On the back of the 3G phone is a 13-megapixel camera accompanied by a 1.3-megapixel front version, while the battery has a surprising 3,000mAh capacity. Running on Android 4.4.2, the G3 Stylus uses a similar software suite to the G3, including Knock Code security, Gesture Shot, Dual Window mode, and LG's Smart Keyboard.

Shipping in black, white, and gold color options, the LG G3 Stylus will be going on sale in Brazil in September followed by areas of Asia, Middle East and Africa, and the Commonwealth of Independent States. Though pricing will be revealed when it goes on sale in each market, the overall specifications list strongly suggests LG is aiming for a low price point to combat Samsung's similar offering.
