The Stylo 7 is currently rumored to become the latest in a line of LG phones with an in-built digital pen. Its latest leak shows that it has a rear panel that makes this abundantly clear. It is designed to look as though it has been moulded around the housing for this stylus, with an additional separate hump for its rear cameras.

Smartphone design often seems to have come to a point where every device from every OEM looks more or less the same from the back: simple rectangles of (usually) glass only interrupted by large equally four-sided (or, if the consumer is lucky, round) camera humps of ever-increasing size and thickness. Therefore, some leaked renders allegedly pertaining to 2021 LG phones may come as a breath of fresh air.

This manufacturer is already linked to an innovative triangular rear camera in a potential Q-series mid-ranger. Now, there are signs that similar thought has gone into the successor for the Stylo 6. This rumor is based on allegedly official CAD files leaked from LG.

They show a device with pronunced long divots running along either side of an S Pen-like silo. This unusual tweak also gives the impression of very thin edges, although the rest of the rear panel next to the narrow rear camera module (for up to 4 sensors) is the same thickness as the resulting "pen hump".

These images, then, may translate into a real-world phone with a distinctive rear-panel finish. on the other hand, its extra features may mean glass is out of the question for this putative pen-toting smartphone.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
