2. The Phones Were Spotted in a LG Promo Video

Android Police notes that the two phones were spotted in a LG promo video, which has since been removed from YouTube. As you can see in the tweet above, the G3 Beat is a bit squat compared to the regular G3. The G3 Stylus comes bundled with, unsurprisingly, a stylus. It is expected to be a direct competitor to Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4.


3. Phablet Sales Are Expected to Grow in the Coming Years

It makes sense that LG would be interested in getting a piece of the “phablet” market with a device like the G3 Stylus. BGR reports that sales of phablet phones are expected to keep on growing, eventually overtaking total tablet shipments by 2017.

A leak last month may have revealed that the G3 Stylus won’t have an amazing screen. Phone Arena previously reported that the G3 Stylus would have a screen resolution of just 540 x 960. This might not be a bad thing, however, as the lower screen quality could mean a lower price. The price tag might make this phabley appealing to users who can’t afford a Samsung Galaxy Note.
