For a moment, it seemed like LG was only focusing on their flagship devices but the announcement of the LG X-series yesterday shows the company's interest in expending their mid-range offerings. As the official sequel to last year's LG G4 Stylus, the new LG Stylus 2 looks to be yet another product line that LG is branching out with their device strategy.

Similar to it's distant predecessor, the new LG Stylus 2 is all about the rubber tipped stylus which pairs up nicely with various software enhancements that LG is implementing to take advantage of that dedicated stylus. That's not all, the new LG Stylus 2 also boasts a new Pen Keeper feature that alerts you when the you misplace the pen.

The LG Stylus 2 is by no means a flagship device but it does have a pretty large 5.7-inch display paired with a quad-core SoC to make the LG Stylus 2 a pretty decent mid-range device. Just like the LG G5 and the LG X-Series, the LG Stylus 2 will be on LG's booth during Mobile World Congress 2016.

“LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone at a price of a mid-tier phone,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “This device is another example of our commitment to the mass-tier segment where there is so much opportunity for growth and creativity.”
