LG has confirmed the existence of both the previously leaked G4c and the G4 Stylus by officially announcing them today in Seoul.

The G4 Stylus appears to be more economical Galaxy Note competitor. As the name implies, a Rubberdium Stylus is included for easy note taking or drawing. The phone sports a 5.7-inch HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core (LTE version) or 1.4 GHz octa-core (3G version) procesor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, 13 MP (LTE) or 8MP (3G) rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 3,000 mAh removable battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. I should note that the camera includes laser autofocus, but it does not include optical image stabilization or that amazing f/1.9 aperture found on the G4. You will have your choice of Floral White or Metallic Silver and it starts shipping to carriers and retailers over the next several weeks. It will be called the G Stylo in North America and Korea.
