LG G3 Stylus teaser

KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG has teased the unannounced G3 Stylus phablet, which will look to rival the Galaxy Note 4.

It's unclear whether LG intentionally revealed the G3 Stylus, with the handset appearing at the end of a promotional video for the firm's recently-announced G3 Beat smartphone.

Beyond, unsurprisingly, its support for a stylus, LG hasn't revealed any further details about the anticipated phablet. However, the video shows that it will boast a design nearly identical to that of the flagship LG G3, hinting that it will come with the same physical buttons on its rear.

According to speculation, however, the LG G3 Stylus will feature a 5.9in screen, larger than the 5.7in screen expected to feature on the Galaxy Note 4. This likely will boast the same QHD resolution as its flagship sibling, and will reportedly come powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

It's also unclear whether the LG G3 Stylus will be unveiled ahead of the Galaxy Note 4, which is tipped to be announced ahead of next month's IFA conference on 3 September, ahead of a release on 25 September.

Samsung's latest phablet is also expected to feature a 2560x1440 resolution screen, an included stylus and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip. However, rumours suggest that the handset will feature Samsung's own octa-core Exynos 5 chip in some regions.

The Galaxy Note 4 is also expected to boast IP67 certification, dual 16MP and 3MP cameras, up to 128GB of microSD card storage and 4G LTE support. There's also talk that the handset might be one of the first to arrive running Android 5.0 L. µ
