LG to unveil Stylus 3 phablet in early-2017 – and that’s just the beginning

LG is set to unveil no less than seven new mobile devices in early-2017, with the Stylus 3 phablet joined by a slew of fresh LG K and LG X handsets.

According to reliable mobile tipster Evan Blass, writing on VentureBeat, the South Korean firm has a raft of new smartphones up it sleeve and will begin outing them in the coming weeks.

The headline reveal, for many, will be the LG Stylus 3, with the beastly-sounding 5.7-inch phablet set to pack 32GB of RAM and a 3,200mAh battery, as well as 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras, respectively.

There’s also likely to be a fingerprint reader, rear controls, and as its name would suggest, a bundled stylus.

Elsewhere, LG’s K series of mid-range phones is getting four new models – the K3, K4, K8 and K10 – and the LG X range is getting a couple of new additions, too.

These sound a bit more interesting than the K series phones, with the LG X power 2 set to feature a hefty 4,500mAh battery. Combined with an undemanding 5.5-inch HD display, it sounds like it could go for days.

The LG X calibur, for its part, will be water and dust resistant to the military-grade IP68 standard, and pack a 4,100mAh cell for good measure.

Blass says LG will debut the K series phones, Stylus 3, and X power 2 at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, with the X calibur set to follow at MWC later in the year.
