Last week, LG announced the Q Stylus line of phones which includes the Q Stylus, Q Stylus Plus, and Q Stylus α. It mentioned that availability and pricing will be announced in destination markets such as the US and Asia. If you live in America and have been waiting for the Q Stylus α, direct your searchlight at MetroPCS LG Stylo 4.
A user manual and flyer of the LG Stylo 4 has surfaced online and judging from the specs and design, we believe it is the same device as the LG Q Stylus α.
The Stylo 4 comes with a 6.2-inch FullVision display with a 2160 x 1080 resolution. It is powered by an unnamed Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz which we believe is the Snapdragon 450.
The Q Stylus α has 3GB of RAM but LG has put 2GB of RAM in the Stylo 4. However, storage remains 32GB and can be expanded via a MicroSD card slot. For optics, there is a 13MP sensor on the rear and a 5MP wide-angle sensor above the display. The camera can take portrait photos and capture fast moving objects. There is even a Google Lens-like feature called Q Lens, and DTS:X 3D surround audio.
The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo and has a 3,300mAh battery and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Like the name says, the device comes with a stylus but don’t expect features like those found on Samsung’s Galaxy Note series. Nevertheless, you should be able to write with the stylus instead of typing with the on-screen keyboard.
The user manual shows the position of the sensors, ports, and buttons. There is a micro USB port at the bottom along with a 3.5mm audio jack, a speaker grille, and a primary microphone.
Volume keys are on the left, just a few centimeters above the SIM & MicroSD tray. The manual also reveals the Stylo 4 has a notification LED and NFC.
There is no info on the pricing and when it will be available as at the time of writing.
