If you are someone who prefers buying smartphones with a stylus but finds Samsung's offerings out of budget, the LG Stylo lineup is something that you can have a look at. The LG Stylo 6 was announced earlier this year and the company is now working on its successor for the next year. The phone has surfaced in a leak detailing hardware design and some of the features.
The leak starts off by clearing that the successor will be called the LG Stylo 7. Since 5G is the hottest mobile tech, LG will release the phone in both 5G and 4G LTE variants. This particular leak is about the 5G variant i.e. LG Stylo 7 5G. The phone sports a 6.8-inch centered punch-hole flat display panel which is one of the major differences as the current-gen Stylo 6 offers a notched display.
The phone has a vertically-aligned triple camera setup in the top left corner. It has a slight bulge that increases the thickness to 10mm as compared to 8.8mm otherwise. The technical specifications of these camera sensors are currently unknown but we expect them to become available in the coming weeks. The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the right side which is something we have seen in many other phones as well.
LG has decided to continue with the 3.5mm headphone jack for the next year. The stylus will be shipped with the phone as was the case with previous Stylo phones. The stylus holder is present at the bottom similar to Samsung's Galaxy Note series. This is pretty much everything that is known about the LG Stylo 7 5G for now.
