LG G4 Stylus seemingly confirmed in latest leak

Rumours of an LG G4 Stylus are out in force after a leaked image appeared to show off a mystery LG device paired with a pen peripheral.

It appears to be the same device we saw leaked in images just last week, although we assumed that the handset in question was the LG G4.

A small indent in the handset’s top right corner looked like a stylus slot however, which suggested otherwise.

A newly leaked image (via Nowhereelse) looks to support the stylus theory however, showing a stylus next to the same device. The indent is also empty, apparently because the stylus has been removed.

It’s not yet clear whether the LG G4 will carry a stylus as standard, or if LG is planning a spin-off handset to launch alongside the G4 proper, stylus in tow.

We did, however, hear back in December that the LG G4 would come with an integrated stylus on board.

The new image reinforces several design points we picked up on from last week’s leak too.

For starters, the device will carry a metallic-style rear, rocking what looks like a brushed aluminium chassis.

It will also carry over the rear-mounted power button and volume rocker that we saw on the LG G3.

The leaked images thus far have given little away in terms of specs, but other leask suggest the device will use the Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera, and a 5.6-inch 3K display.

We’re expecting LG to launch the LG G4 in late April, so we don’t have long to wait until we find out what the South Korean tech giant has in store for us.
