LG has launched a new stylus-toting phone called the LG Stylo 5. The latest Stylo-series phone succeeds the LG Stylo 4 that was launched in June last year. In terms of hardware, the LG Stylo 5 doesn’t appear to be much of an upgrade over its predecessor as it packs the same imaging hardware and an identical display with the same size and resolution.
LG Stylo 5 runs on Android 9 Pie and packs a 6.2-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) Full Vision display. It is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz. However, LG has not specified whether a MediaTek or Qualcomm SoC is powering the phone.
In the photography department, the LG Stylo 5 comes equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage, which can further be expanded via a microSD card (up to 2TB).
The LG Stylo 5 is also rated for hearing aids M3 and T3. The new LG phone comes equipped with a 3,500 mAh battery.
The phone comes pre-installed with a host of features such as on-screen memo and optimised apps to make the most of the stylus.
