Almost one month after the release of the LG Stylo 3, we hear that the LG Stylo 4 is in the making. Sadly, the insiders who talked about it only mentioned that it will hit the US via Cricket Wireless, without saying anything about the specs and features of this upcoming mid-range Android phablet.

Back in May 2017, the LG Stylo 3 was introduced in the US via multiple carriers. Having been previously unveiled at CES 2017, this mid-range phablet focused on providing a cost-effective solution for the users in need of a large-screen device with stylus support. Now, it seems that the LG Stylo 4 is ready to hit the market as well.

Although Android Headlines recently confirmed that the LG Stylo 4 is in the making and also revealed an image of this upcoming phablet, they did not offer any information regarding the hardware and software specs one should expect from this device. However, it is rather safe to assume that the LG Stylo 4 will be better than the LG Stylo 3 Plus that arrived on T-Mobile last May, which is in fact nothing more than a slightly improved LG Stylo 3.

The LG Stylo 3 Plus features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, a 5.7-inch full HD display, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a 13 MP main camera, and runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Obviously, the main highlight will remain the premium metallic textured stylus, but we expect a few new features for it in the LG Stylo 4. In addition to these new Pen Pop features, we hope for a slightly larger display with a 2:1 aspect ratio, 4 GB RAM, Android Oreo, and maybe a main dual camera setup as well.

Since the LG Stylo 4 is probably a few weeks ahead, you should check out the LG Stylo 3 Plus review below. LG seems to be struggling to keep its smartphone business afloat nowadays, so the LG Stylo 4 might become one of the brand's last handsets. What does it need to make you buy it? Do you think there is still hope for LG?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
