LG to also unveil G4 Stylus successor (Stylus 2) at MWC 2016

February 15, 2016 Leave a comment

We already know that the LG G5 flagship will be made official at this year’s Mobile World Congress, and just yesterday, LG announced that a new, mid-range ‘X’ series of smartphones will be also be unveiled at the annual event.

Turns out that’s not all, as the South Korean company has now announced that a sequel to last year’s G4 Stylus – dubbed Stylus 2 – will also be unveiled at MWC 2016.

As clear from the device’s name, the Stylus 2 will also come with a pen, but with a nano-coated tip instead of the previous rubber-tipped pen. LG says the change is aimed at attaining “more accuracy.”

The phone will include a set of proprietary features that the company claims will enhance the user experience. These include Pen Pop and Pen Keeper. While the former “toggles a popup menu when the stylus is removed to offer shortcuts to Pop Memo and Pop Scanner,” the latter is aimed at preventing the stylus from being misplaced – it displays “a popup message when the phone is detected as being in motion when the stylus bay is empty.”

Specs-wise, the Stylus 2 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and sports a 5.7-inch HD display. RAM is 1.5GB, while internal memory is 16GB, although expandable. There’s a removable 3,000mAh battery to keep the lights on.

In terms of camera, the device features a 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front shooter. Measuring 155 x 79.6 x 7.4mm and weighing in at 145g, the handset runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and will be available in titan, white, and brown color options. While LG didn’t reveal any pricing-related details, it did say that the Stylus 2 will be “exceptionally-priced.”

“LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone at a price of a mid-tier phone,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “This device is another example of our commitment to the mass-tier segment where there is so much opportunity for growth and…

Any Xbox gamers hoping to get some play in on a Monday night might be having some issues. Twitter is full of people having trouble signing into Microsoft’s Xbox Live, and I haven’t been able to sign on for a few hours now. Microsoft’s official status page lists “social and gaming” as “limited –” the category covers “In-game matchmaking, cloud storage, finding friends, Game DVR, leaderboards, avatar editing, or pictures.” Here’s the message on the site:

Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact receive price cuts in US

February 15, 2016 Leave a comment

Just a week after they were launched in the United States, the Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact have received price cuts in the country. While the former’s price has been slashed by $60, the latter has got its price cut by $50.

This means that the Xperia Z5 is now available for $539, while the Compact variant will now set you back $449. As for availability, while Amazon is selling both devices at these reduced rates, Best Buy is only offering the discount on the Compact variant.

If you’re planning to buy any of the handsets, keep in mind that Sony hasn’t included the fingerprint sensor on its Z5 line of devices for the US – reason isn’t yet officially known, although reports say it’s due to logistics.
