The South Korean company announced today the Canadian availability of its latest stylus equipped smartphone, the LG Stylo 3 Plus. The mid-tier smartphone, which is dubbed the Stylus rather than the Stylo outside of North America, is the third generation of this stylus powered device.
The big draw of the Stylo 3 Plus will be the often mentioned stylus pen. It will allow users to take notes, draw, and mark up documents on their smartphone device with a new 1.88 mm diameter fiber-tip stylus. It is designed to provide the feedback and feel of using an actual pen.
The guts of the device are fairly generic: it runs Android 7.0, it’s packed with 5 MP front and 13 MP rear cameras, and has decent battery life with a 3,200 mAh removable battery. However, with no Gorilla Glass or IP certification of any kind, you’ll definitely want to have a case with this device. You can check out the full tech specs below.
The software behind the upgraded stylus, is Pen Pop 2.0, which includes a fingerprint scanner, and features such as Pen Keeper and Screen-off Memo. This allows for users to essentially use the device as a notepad, displaying notes written on the device even if the screen is off.
The LG Stylo 3 Plus has begun to roll out in Canada as of today, June 2., at these select carriers: Bell, Eastlink, Freedom Mobile, Koodo Mobile, Bell MTS, SaskTel, Telus, Videotron, and Virgin Mobile, as well as at WOW! mobile boutiques in a mall near you. Price will vary depending on the carrier.
