LG India is reportedly set to launch the G4 Stylus in India at Rs. 24,990, as tipped by an established Mumbai-based retailer. The company is yet to make an official announcement or list the device on its India site.
According to a post by Mahesh Telecom, stocks of the LG G4 Stylus smartphone will arrive in a few days, and go on sale shortly thereafter.
The retailer has also shared details about additional offers that will be available to consumers who buy the G4 Stylus including a free 16GB microSD card (worth Rs. 500); Quick Circle case (worth Rs. 5,000); Hungama app downloads free for first 45 days, and Rockstand mobile app with free downloading worth Rs. 2,000.
Launched initially in May, the Android 5.0 Lollipop-based LG G4 Stylus comes with a UI derived from the 2015 flagship smartphone, the LG G4, which sports the LG UX 4.0
The G4 Stylus features a 5.7-inch display, which is slightly larger than the 5.5-inch display seen on the G4. As the name suggests, it sports a rubberdium stylus for note-taking.
Some of the highlights of the G4-derived UI on the G4 Stylus smartphones include Gesture Shot, which allows the camera to open and close a hand in front of the lens to start a three-second countdown for the shutter; Knock Code, which was first introduced on the LG G2, that allows users to unlock the phone by tapping a personalised 'knock' pattern on the display, and Glance View, which shows key notifications on the display when it is turned off.
For specifications, the LG G4 Stylus features a 5.7-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display offering a pixel density of 258ppi; 1GB of RAM; 16GB of built-in storage; expandable storage support via microSD card; 3000mAh battery (removable); Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n; Bluetooth 4.1; NFC; A-GPS; Glonass; Micro-USB; 5-megapixel front camera; 154.3x79.2x9.6mm, and 163 grams. The G4 Stylus will come in LTE and 3G variants featuring slightly different specifications. The LTE model will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor while the 3G variant will feature a 1.4GHz octa-core processor. The LTE model will sport a 13-megapixel rear camera while the 3G model will sport an 8-megapixel rear camera. Mahesh Telecom has tipped the smartphone to launch in its 4G LTE variant in India, pointing to the 1.2GHz quad-core processor.
LG India last month launched its 2015 flagship G4 smartphone at Rs. 51,000.
