An alleged successor to LG's Stylo 6 phablet had previously shown up in renders hinting at a highly original, pen-centric rear panel design. Its latest leak does not bear this out: however, it does purport to reveal a "Samsung Galaxy Note rival" with an appreciably large display and SKUs with a choice of connectivity.

LG's next-gen Stylo-series device has popped up again in a new leak that purports to reveal its design, along with a few new details about the phablet. Then again, it contains high-quality renders rather than CAD schematics this time, even if these newer images appear to debunk the latter's most interesting and unique features.

They pointed to a rear panel with raised portions for not only the rear cameras, but also for the in-built pen silo immediately beneath it. However, the latest renders, posted by Steve Hemmerstoffer (also known as OnLeaks) via Voice, contradict this putative design choice, and may show that the CAD images (presuming they had been genuine to begin with) only looked like that to indicate where the stylus goes when housed within the upcoming LG phone after all.

Instead, OnLeaks' new renders (and video) indicate a much more ordinary, if high-gloss, monolithic rear panel for the Stylo 7. It is accompanied by new rumors that its display (which has a central punch-hole camera and a noticeable chin) is to be about 6.8 inches in diagonal length, and will join a 3.5mm jack among the phone's specs.

This Stylo 7 is also to have 2 main variants: one with 5G and one without. Then again, the leaker does not mention the SoCs that could support this difference in mobile data choices. All in all, should this new leak prove true, LG is now slated to provide a range of purchase options, ranging in affordability, for consumers that might end up missing out on their Galaxy Note 21s in the coming year.
