LG Electronics today announced yet another new device, the midrange LG Q Stylus, which features handwritten input.
Depending on the market, LG Q Stylus will be available in one or more configurations: Q Stylus+, Q Stylus and Q Stylusα.
The stylus adds more functionality beyond the typical keyboard experience while an "intelligent palm rejection system" ensures that accuracy is never an issue even when resting one's hand on the display.
Even with the display off, the LG Q Stylus will recognize and record handwritten notes. Beyond notes and memos, the stylus can also be utilized to personalize captured images and videos to create animated GIFs.
The LG Q Stylus also offers a camera that rivals the lens of the LG G series. QLens comes standard on the handset: capture an image of a product with QLens to get more information on where to purchase that item or to learn about similar products. QLens is intelligent enough to recognize images of food, fashion, celebrities and even landmarks.
The device is sporting an 8MP front camera and 16MP rear lens. LG claims that Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) makes the camera 23 percent faster than conventional auto focus while Portrait Mode delivers bokeh selfies.
In terms of audio, the phone offers the same DTS:X found in the V and G series for up to 7.1 channel 3D surround sound when listening with earphones. Other features include USB Type-C fast charging, IP68 water and dust protection and MIL-STD 810G compliance. The Smart Rear Key fingerprint sensor provides security, but also doubles as the selfie camera shutter button.
The smartphjone has a 6.2-inch FHD+ FullVision display with a 18:9 screen ratio, thin bezel and a curved tempered glass.
The LG Q Stylus will launch on a limited basis starting this month in North America and Asia followed by other regions in the third quarter. Depending on the market, the LG Q Stylus will be available in three configurations: Q Stylus, Q Stylus+ and Q Stylusα.
