LG not only lives of the high range, and that is why it has returned to launch to the market a device with 3 different variants for those people who want to enjoy the benefits of a stylus without paying the 900/1000 euros that can cost a Galaxy Note. These three terminals are the LG Q Stylus, LG Q Stylus + and LG Q Stylus Alpha , being the first the standard version and the other two the most powerful and economical version respectively.
We are facing 3 smartphones with a hardware configuration very similar to the LG Q7 but with the obvious differences in screen, in addition to the inclusion of the pencil. LG has done a good job with this device, since in it we can enjoy some high-end features. Let’s see what we are.
The 3 variants of the LG Q Stylus arrive with a stylus capable of recognize and record notes handwritten, and this is true even when the screen is off , so we will not have to unlock the LG Q Stylus or open any application to take notes.
This pencil can be used to edit videos and images recorded with the camera, and can even create GIFs, and at all times we have a technology detection of palms of the hands that avoids alterations in the stroke even though we support the hand lightly on the screen.
The extras of the LG Q Stylus are not limited to the inclusion of the pen, but LG has added some features of the LG G7 and the LG V35 ThinQ like the sound DTS: X up to 7.1 channels, the IP68 certification against dust and water, and military certificate MIL-STD 810G , although these last two features are not present in the Alpha version.
For the rest, we have fingerprint reader back with functions of selfie trigger and a port Type C USB in the 3 versions of the LG Q Stylus.
As we said at the beginning, the performance of the device is very similar to that of the LG Q7 except for the dimensions and screen of it, of course.
The LG Q Stylus and its brothers have proportions of 1 60.15 x 77.75 x 8.4mm and a weight of 172 grams, and have an IPS screen 6.2 inches (5.5 inches on the LG Q7) with a Full-HD + resolution of 1080 × 2160 pixels with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and a pixel density of 389 ppp .
The process section will depend on the chosen model, and although we do not know exactly which of these two SoCs will use the normal version, we can say that the LG Q Stylus Alpha integrates a processor Mediatek MT6750 at 1.5 GHz, while the LG Q Stylus + (and possibly the normal version) make use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 at 1.8 GHz, both with 8 cores.
These processors are combined with 3 GB of RAM memory for the Alpha and standard versions, while the LG Q Stylus Plus it reaches the 4GB of RAM memory.
Something similar happens with the storage , with the two less powerful versions integrating a total of 32 GB of capacity and Plus version with 64 GB of capacity, being able to expand this space with up to 2 extra TB by means of micro-SD.
With regard to the photographic quality , we have a rear camera sensor 16 megapixels with PDAF lens (autofocus by phase detection) and portrait mode, although the LG Q Stylus Alpha complies with a sensor 13 megapixels .
The frontal camera is somewhat uncertain, since LG has claimed that it will be 5 Mpx or 8 Mpx according to the market, with the exception of the LG Q Stylus Alpha, which will only integrate a 5 Mpx sensor. Yes we know that they will integrate super wide-angle lenses.
In terms of connectivity , the 3 versions of the LG Q Stylus include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS / A-GPS, NFC and USB Type-C (version 2.0), plus a battery 3300 mAh .
These 3 terminals will arrive first in Asia and the US, although from the third quarter they will land in other markets, like ours, probably, so for now we can not give prices.
While the LG Q Stylus Alpha only available in blue (Moroccan Blue), the LG Q Stylus Normal can also be acquired in black (Aurora Black).
For its part, the most premium of the three, the LG Q Stylus + can be purchased in the two previous colors and in an exclusive lavender color (Lavender Violet).
