The LG Q Stylus range are mid-range alternatives to the Galaxy Note 8

If the Galaxy Note 8 isn’t entirely within your budget, Samsung’s rival, LG, is hoping that its trio of new Q Stylus handsets will appeal to your wallet. The range includes the lower-specced Q Stylus Alpha, the middle-of-the-road Q Stylus, and the ever so slightly higher specced Q Stylus Plus, with all three variants sporting a similar design to the Q7.

The trio of Q Stylus handsets will use an unspecified octa-core processor that is either clocked at 1.5GHz or 1.8GHz. The main differences between the three models are that the higher-specced Q Stylus Plus has 4GB RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and a 16MP rear camera which is also present on the standard Q Stylus. The Regular Q Stylus and Alpha variants make do with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and in the case of the Alpha, a 13MP rear camera.

All three variants have IP68 water and dust resistance, a 3,300mAh battery, 6.2-inch IPS display with FHD+ resolution, a stylus, and run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. As you might have guessed from the display resolution, there is also a notch present. you can check out the full specifications of the Q Stylus range here.

Pricing details for the trio of Q Stylus smartphones are unknown for the moment at least, although LG says that they will launch on a ‘limited basis’ in North America and Asia this month with other ‘key regions’ following in Q3 2018.
