The LG Stylus 2 comes in Titan and White color options, and it costs 396,000 Won in South Korea, which is the equivalent to $328. LG did not say when exactly will the handsets going to be available, but they did mention this week, so they might basically become available on the aforementioned carriers any day now. Some of you are probably wondering when will this handset going to be available outside of Korea, well, LG did mention that the device will roll out to the US, Europe and Asia soon, but they did not give out an exact date or anything fo the sort, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

The LG Stylus 2 features a 5.7-inch 720p (1280 x 720) In-Cell Touch display, along with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device is fueled by a quad-core SoC running at 1.2GHz, and a 3,000mAh battery is available on the inside, and it is removable. The 13-megapixel snapper can be found on the back of this handset, while an 8-megapixel shooter is placed on its front side. This smartphone offers 4G LTE connectivity, of course, and as you can see in the provided images, you also get a stylus along with it. The LG Stylus 2 measures 155 x 79.6 x 7.4mm, while it weighs 145 grams. Now, the aforementioned stylus comes with a new nano-coated tip, which should offer more accuracy compared to other stylus offerings with similar rubber tips. LG has included a number of software features to complement this stylus, like the Pen Pop, Pop Memo and Pop Scanner. Speaking of software, this phablet ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and on top of it, you’ll find LG’s very own custom UI.
