South Korean consumer electronics company LG has launched a new mid-range phablet, G4 Stylus, in India.

The new G4 Stylus was originally unveiled in May.

It features a slightly bigger 5.7-inch screen compared to the original 5.5-inch in LG G4. Its power-and-volume-rockers combo module is placed just below the rear-side camera.

Like the flagship smartphone, G4 Stylus also boasts of a laser-auto focus feature. This unique feature measures the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam, enabling quick capture of good quality photos even under low-light conditions.

But the similarity between the G4 Stylus and G4 ends there.

The former comes with a stylus, an input tool, the one popularized by 'S-Pen' in Samsung Galaxy Note series phablets.

Under the hood, its internal hardware has been watered down so that phablet can be retailed in mid-range category. It comes packed with a Snapdragon 400 SoC (System on Chip) with 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory and a 3000 mAh battery.

As of now, the LG G4 Stylus has been listed on the company's official webpage for ₹24,990. However, details regarding its availability in brick-and-mortar stores and other e-commerce sites are still under wraps. 


Except for the laser auto-focus, there is nothing special in the LG G4 Stylus. LG will find it tough to compete with feature phones such as Xiaomi Mi 4 and OnePlus One, which recently received a price-cut in India, making them more attractive for price-conscious smartphone buyers.
