The LG Stylus 3, which was launched before the CES 2017 event is now listed on the LG India’s official website for Rs. 18,500. And the company also stated the smartphone’s launch on Twitter quietly. The LG Stylus 3 is the successor to last year’s LG Stylus 2 and features mid-range specifications to justify the asking price.
As the name itself suggests, the Stylus 3 comes with a Stylus with which you can perform various actions on the screen, similar to that of Samsung SPen in Galaxy Note series. On the front, there is a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1080 pixels and a pixel density of 267 PPI.
The LG Stylus 3 is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 chipset, which is an octa-core clocked at 1.5GHz. Accompanying the chip is 3GB of RAM for handling system operations and 16GB of native storage. The phone also supports expandable storage via microSD card up to 2TB. The Stylus 3 comes with connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port.
The smartphone carries a 13MP rear camera with support for LED flash and PDAF. The Stylus 3 also has an 8MP front-facing camera which also comes with the assistance for LED flash. The handset boots Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and is armed with a 3200mAh battery. The Stylus 3 is light at 149 grams and measures 7.4mm in thickness.
The Stylus 3 also has a fingerprint sensor located on the rear side of the phone, which can also be tuned to perform various functions such as taking screenshots, capturing photos, etc.
The LG Stylus 3 in India goes against the likes of Oppo F1s, Vivo V5, Moto G5 Plus, and Lenovo P2, which are also priced in the similar range. While the Moto G5 Plus and Lenovo P2 uses a powerful chip, the Oppo F1s and Vivo V5 has almost similar specifications as the Stylus 3.
