Prior to the launch of LG G5 reveals LG a new Stylus 2 with an improved stylus and a new design to follow up on last year’s G4 Stylus.
While all eyes are directed towards, among other things, LG’s next top model, G5, which launches Sunday 21 February, is the very same manufacturer ready with a little. additional news. South Korean LG launches for the new smartphone, LG Stylus 2, which is the successor to the LG G4 Stylus from last year.
There is as it first happened a name change this year, when it seems that LG’s stylus-equipped smartphones are now sold separately from the G-series. It means a new, fresh design, where there is not much that is similar to its predecessor, with the exception of the buttons on the back-while much of the giblets are, as known from G4 Stylus-just a little better.
As the name indicates, it is still the appropriate stylus, which is the focal point for the product. Here, there are, of course, been improvements since last year. Now is the tip of the stylus was thin nano-coated, so it should be even better in use than the previous peak of rubber.
Together with stylussen will also be a number of improvements in the software. With the function Pen Pop you see immediately a popup on the screen when you take stylussen out of the phone. Here you have easy access to the features Pop and Pop Memo Scanner, and with Pen Keeper you get an alert if stylussen will be left without being put in the phone again.
Small improvements of specifications
While there have been plenty of new on the design front and stylussen, the same cannot be said about the hardware completely, which most resembles the familiar. The screen remains at large 5.7 “with a HD resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels, just as processor at 1.4 GHz (probably Snapdragon 410), the battery on 3,000 mAh and networking opportunities (LTE/4 g, HSPA +/3G and GSM/2 g) are identical.
The small changes are to be found in front of the camera, which is now screwed up to 8 megapixel from 5, while 1 GB of RAM has been to 1.5 GB. There are 16 GB of storage space, rather than the very scraped 8 GB in its predecessor. Here you can continue to expand with a microSD card.
Comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Most surprising is it maybe that this mellemklassesmartphone comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow – the latest Android version from Google. There is otherwise a clear trend among manufacturers to deal with extremely good time to deliver new smartphones with the latest Android version preinstalled.
This means that you get all the news such as batterisparefunktionen Doze and the amended system compared to apps, which they now must request access for each permission which in iOS. Marshmallow brings far more news with it, as you can see here.
LG has not yet indicated either price or availability on this new Stylus 2, but informs that it will be to find at Mobile World Congress, which kicks off from Monday 22. February up to and including Thursday, September 25. February.
LG will very likely show the phone until the 22. and even perhaps more accurately at 09:00 in the morning. The date and time on the screen press the pictures wont as often to be used as a hint about when smartphones are published.
