LG to showcase G3 Stylus handset at IFA event in Berlin next month
In a Tuesday announcement, South Korean tech giant LG revealed that it will showcase a pen-equipped model of its G3 flagship smartphone at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) event, which will be held in Berlin from September 5 through September 10.
The new low-end version of the G3 smartphone is dubbed 'G3 Stylus' and it will be equipped with a Rubberdium pen. Though LG has not disclosed the specific price of G3 Stylus, the company has revealed that the handset - running on the third-generation network (3G) - will be more affordable than the original G3 which costs 899,800 won (approximately US$882).
The forthcoming G3 Stylus handset will feature a 5.5-inch qHD screen with 960x540-pixels resolution; and will be powered by a lower-end quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.3GHz. The handset will have 8GB built-in storage capacity and 1GB RAM.
The new G3 Stylus smartphone will retain some of the original key features of the G3 handset, including a 13-megapixel rear camera, though without laser autofocus; as well as the 'Knock Code' feature which gives the users the ability to unlock their device by tapping the screen several times.
The LG G3 Stylus handset will launch in Brazil in September; and will later hit the markets in Asia, Africa, Middle East and the CIS regions. The handset will be available in three color options --- black, white and gold.
