LG has quietly added a new device to its stables. Unlike the V60 ThinQ and Velvet, however, this new phone is a budget offering that offers just one unique selling point. The LG Stylo 6 has now been launched, and it carries a US$220 price tag.
The Stylo 6 features a 6.8-inch FHD+ LCD. It’s a mundane 60 Hz panel. Like the V60 ThinQ and Velvet, the display sports a waterdrop notch. Bezels are quite prominent, though, which isn’t something you’ll find on most phones these days.
Under the hood is where the Stylo 6 falls flat on its face. It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio P35, a budget SoC that offers even worse performance than the four-year-old mid-range Snapdragon 625. 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage is standard. The phone gets its juice from a 4000 mAh battery.
Housed within the notch is a 13 MP selfie camera, while the rear of the phone sports a triple-camera setup: a 13 MP main camera, 5 MP wide-angle lens, and a 5 MP depth sensor. The phone runs Android 10.
The LG Stylo 6 features a built-in stylus, hence the “Stylo” branding. It’s a niche feature, and the single selling point of the phone.
