LG G4 could pack integrated G Pen stylus

The LG G4 will land with an integrated stylus in tow, latest reports have suggested.

Despite LG having made waves in the smartphone space in recent years with the LG G2 and LG G3, it has been suggested the Korean manufacturer could look to echo the Galaxy Note 4 and bestow its next leading smartphone – the LG G4 – with a stylus.

Although the LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch panel, the handset’s phablet-flirting size has been kept down thanks to minimalist bezels.

It is likely that if the G4 does incorporate a dedicated stylus, LG will be forced to bulk up its smartphone’s frame in order to accommodate the peripheral.

With the latest G4 rumours having surfaced courtesy of Chinese site ITHome, we must stress these claims should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt given their less than official foundations.

However, adding a bit of credibility to the claims, earlier this year is emerged that LG has trademarked the term ‘G Pen’, presumably in reference to a smartphone stylus.

The LG G4 has been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks.

According to latest reports, the G4 will run Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor alongside improved camera optics, Android 5.0 and LG’s now customary rear-mounted volume and power controls.

With the G4 release date expected to be held post MWC 2015 during Q2, LG has already patented the G4 name.
