One year after MetroPCS launched the LG G Stylo, it’s been revealed that the phablet’s successor is making its way to Metro, too.
MetroPCS has revealed that it will launch the LG Stylo 2 Plus, and if you pre-register between June 10 and June 26 and then buy your Stylo 2 Plus before July 31, you’ll get a free folio case for your new phone. Metro’s promo image shows that this folio case exposes part of the screen so that you can do things like answer phone calls with the cover on.
As for the LG Stylo 2 Plus itself, it features a 5.7-inch display, 13-megapixel rear camera, fingerprint reader, and of course, a stylus. LG will be equipping the Stylo 2 Plus with some special software features to help you use that stylus, like a Calligraphy Pen Mode that’ll transform your handwriting into “beautiful script,” as well as a Screen-off Memo feature that’ll let you jot down notes without turning on your display.
MetroPCS hasn’t given specifics about the LG Stylo 2 Plus’s launch, so I’ve reached out to them for more info. Given both the pre-register end date and this leaked image, it looks like the Stylo 2 Plus could become available on June 27. As for pricing, the original G Stylo launched at a price of $199, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Stylo 2 Plus hit store shelves with a similar price tag.
