LG, leading consumer electronics brand worldwide have many successful products, but smartphones are not one of that, at least in the recent years. Though LG has never stopped at innovating their mobile line up with a flexible screen, modularity and so on, none turned out to be a hit.

LG Stylo 4 is one such attempt of LG to take on the Samsung’s Note series which is popularly identified with an electronic stylus. The Note series has a large screen similar to a phablet and targets for business purposes and Stylo too follows the same. Unlike Samsung’s the LG’s stylus are not an Electronic stylus.

Though the Stylo form LG is not meant for every market, it is announced in the US and some European countries where LG does well. This time the offering might seem to turn heads apart from the brand value and having a dumb stylus in 2018. Here are the rumors, and expectations on the LG Stylo 4.

LG Stylo 4 Rumors, Features, Specs, Price and Release date

Rumors

LG is not consistent with Stylo range since it did not do well and it was targeted for selected markets only. Rumors say there could be a Stylo smartphone in the cooking scheduled for 2018. The fourth generation of Stylo has some exciting things to be looked at.

Display

LG, like every other brand, has adopted the 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen size as per the rumors is 6 inches diagonally. 6 inches have become the norm in current smartphone scenario. But pushing further might make it look like a tablet. Hence the size is acceptable. The resolution is QHD+ that is 1440 * 2880 Pixels. LG one of the leading display manufacturers are very crisp with their displays and are very good at IPS LCD panels than the OLED panels. Hence a high-res LCD display is speculated to cover the face of LG Stylo 4.

With hot rumors around the corners of the LG G7 with a notch, they have decided not to have the infamous trend of a notch in their Stylo series hence that will make the stylus usage more obsolete. Instead, the bezels are very thin on the top and almost non-existent on the bottom.

Powerhouse of performance

The chipset is expected to be high-end chipset from the Qualcomm Snapdragon which is the SD 835. The Adreno 540 is the graphics Co-processor that runs the graphics rendering without breaking a sweat. RAM can be 4GB or 6GB, Rumours say both variants will be available for major markets and the lower variant will be seen in budget markets like Asia. Storage variants start from 64 Gb and 256 Gb must be the top variant by seeing LG’s track records.

Cameras

Cameras are another department where LG does well apart from the display. For a flagship releasing in 2018 the dual rear cameras is an untold rule. LG has wide angle implementation on their flagship devices like LG G6, LG V30 which was well received in the market. So, this is also expected to follow the same implementation.

The primary sensor will be a 22 MP f/1.8 sensor from Sony and the secondary sensor is not expected to be less than 12 MP with a wide-angle lens. The Primary sensor is stabilized optically, there is no confirmation on the secondary camera. Video recording must support up to 4k resolution.

The selfie shooter is a 13 MP shooter with a 120-degree field of view. Soft flash will accompany the front-facing camera. The camera software from LG is one of the best. Though not the most intuitive to use the manual controls is top notch especially for video recording. Video recording is best in LG phones in the recent. Hope this time too LG does not fail to meet their own standards.

Battery

The battery is a sufficient 4000 mAH. The large form factor has made room for a large battery. LG phones from the past have had the battery life as one of their downsides. It is not the same this time, 4000 mAH is well enough to drive you through a day with ease.

Stylus

Let us talk about the stylus, the USP of the LG Stylo 4. The stylus has been the non-electronic stylus, unlike the Samsung, Notes until the last generation. This time an electronic stylus with additional functionalities is capable to bring in success for the LG. Finger crossed on that because no official information is out on the type of stylus included.

Additional Features

There are varied talks going around the retention of 3.5 mm headphone jack. Apple got rid of the headphone jack with its iPhone 7 and since then some other OEMs like Asus, Google, Xiaomi has started following them and market speculators are confused what side will LG take on this.

The face unlocks, another trend started by the Apple’s 1000 dollar phone. The front camera powered face unlock through a software feature is expected out of the box to have a good marketing campaign for the phone. LG has its native gestures and tweaks on top of the Android it runs. The Android version is expected to be Android Oreo 8.1. LG UI is certainly not in the top 5 custom UI. But with the last few implementations, they have been improving and we hope the same this time too.

Our opinion

The LG’s perfected rival to the unrivaled Samsung Note series is good as we see it from the rumors. If the stylus has worthy functionalities and the camera is good then LG has a powerful player for 2018. The phone should launch in the US and Europe first and if it goes well it might expand to other countries too.
