LG’s new Stylus 2, a stylus-equipped phablet, is the enhanced sequel to the G4 Stylus. It is going to be unveiled in the coming Mobile World Congress in 2016 in Barcelona. The exceptionally-priced 5.7-inch handset shares many of the premium features available on LG’s flagship models but also includes an improved pen with a nano-coated tip for more accuracy compared to the previous rubber-tipped pen.

The device features a set of proprietary functions developed specifically for the LG Stylus 2 to enhance the user experience such as Pen Pop, which toggles a popup menu when the stylus is removed to offer shortcuts to Pop Memo and Pop Scanner. Pen Keeper, new to LG Stylus 2, prevents the stylus from being misplaced by displaying a popup message when the phone is detected as being in motion when the stylus bay is empty. Moreover, the new Calligraphy Pen font allows one to write as beautifully and decoratively as if using a fountain pen.
The handset delivers a unique design statement with the incorporation of a Protruded Flat Display in the front, Spin Hairline pattern on the back and metallic frames on all its edges. The LG Stylus 2 sports a hefty 3,000mAh removable battery and an SD card slot to allow users to enjoy a variety of multimedia content on its large 5.7-inch screen.
The phablet is the company’s big reveal for the grand event. But so much has already been talked about the device that the event might be left with nothing more to talk about.
