The LG Stylus 2 Plus makes its way to Singapore, and it will retail at a price of S$498, starting from 11th June 2016. If you like stylus-based smartphones, this option by LG should be in your sights.

The LG Stylus 2 Plus is similar to the LG Stylus 2, but it comes with a handful of improvements. The Stylus 2 Plus holds a 1.4GHz octa-core processor 1.2GHz octa-core processor (see Update above). LG did not specify which processor the LG Stylus 2 Plus had. The LG Stylus 2 had a 1.2Hz octa-core processor as well.

The display got an upgrade, too. We’re looking at a Full HD IPS display (1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution) across a 5.7-inch screen, which is at a higher quality than the 5.7-inch HD display (1,280 x 720 pixels resolution) that the Stylus 2 had. A display that large would likely show a visible difference in quality, when choosing between HD to Full HD.

The Stylus 2 Plus uses a 16-megapixel camera, which is also an improvement from the Stylus 2’s 13-megapixel shooter. The Plus version also comes with 3GB RAM, and that’s double the amount of memory when compared to its peer. Instead of White, the LG Stylus 2 Plus comes in Gold, along with other color alternatives such as Titan and Brown.

Everything else is essentially the same as its predecessor, which also makes up the phone’s dominant design language and purpose. It still comes with a nano-coated stylus that gives the user tactile pen feedback similar to a fountain pen, and the phone’s user interface is built around the stylus itself. You can find Quick Memo and off Memo, as well as Pen Keeper, a feature that warns the user when the stylus is too far from the phone.

The LG Stylus 2 Plus will be available at all Singtel, M1, StarHub, and other authorized retailers. A free transparent jelly case and screen protector (worth S$32) will be included with every purchase while stocks last.
