Of all LG phones, the G series is what causes the most excitement. The latest addition to the lineup, the G4, is scheduled to go official on April 28th; however, it looks like it won’t be the only device that the Korean company is planning to announce in the weeks to come. A certain device carrying model number LG LS770 passed the FCC and it looks like it could be LG’s new phablet with stylus support.
LG LS770 phone featuring stylus pen
It’s not the first time that we hear about an LG smartphone with stylus pen support. The phone hit the rumor mill in early February when it surfaced in a leaked document. It may not be the same device, though. The document mentioned a handset having model number LG-H631, while the one that paid a visit to the FCC has model number LG LS770. One possible explanation of this discrepancy is that these are two variants of one device only destined for different markets, hence model numbers don’t match.
An LG phone featuring stylus support was mentioned again in mid-March, but this time too some details didn’t add up. Earlier rumors clearly suggested that LG’s upcoming phablet would be more modest than the G4, pretty much like the G3 Stylus was in relation to the G3. However, reports from last month hinted that the device, now referred to as LG G4 Note, would be a premium offering.
One thing is certain, though – LG is working on a phablet with stylus support and it probably won’t be long until it’s announced. The device will possibly be called G4 Stylus and may come with a 5.8-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 610 processor and a 3,000 mAh battery. A leaked photo also reveals no volume and power buttons on the sides suggesting that they are located on the back.
There is a slight chance that LG will announce the G4 Stylus at the same event as the G4, but don’t feel too disappointed if it doesn’t happen. Last year’s G3 Stylus was announced in August and it’s very likely that the G4 Stylus will be unveiled a few weeks or even months after the G4.
