LG has showcased the LG Stylus 2, the successor for LG G4 Stylus at the MWC 2016. Now the device is officially launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 19,500 and will be available starting tomorrow. It comes in Brown and Titanium colors and has a textured finish on the back that offers excellent grip. The rubber tipped stylus which was shipped with G4 Stylus now comes with nano coated tip on Stylus 2 for providing better accuracy.
Though the device is a good upgrade over the G4 Stylus, we can still found few similar specifications between both these devices. It sports the same 5.7-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) display as on G4 Stylus and is powered by 1.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor along with Adreno 304 GPU. The device was earlier announced with 1.5GB of RAM but in India, the company ships it with 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB of onboard storage that can be further expanded via provided MicroSD card slot.
