LG Stylus 2, the smartphone launched by the South Korean tech giant just ahead of MWC 2016 trade show last month, will go on sale this week in the company's home country. The handset is priced at KRW 396,000 (roughly Rs. 22,000) on the company website.
Although LG has not yet mentioned the availability details of the LG Stylus 2 outside South Korea, a report from Yonhap News suggests that the handset will reach North America and Europe later this month.
LG at the time of Stylus 2 launch said that the handset features a pen with a nano-coated tip which will offer more accuracy compared to the previous rubber-tipped pen seen on the LG G4 Stylus.
Some of the other features that the LG Stylus 2 comes with include Pen Pop, which shows a popup menu when the stylus is removed and further offers shortcuts such as Pop Memo and Pop Scanner. Another notable feature of the Stylus 2 is the Pen Keeper, which notifies users when the stylus bay is empty.

It packs 16GB of inbuilt storage and also supports microSD card. The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and also packs an 8-megapixel front camera.
