Leading tech brand LG has recently unveiled a mid-ranger for Japan’s DoCoMo – the Style3. This is not the same as the Stylo series, as there is no stylus on this new device. The phone will be released in June at a price of just over JPY 38,000 approximately (Rs. 27,000).
The new smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset. While the chipset in itself is nearly two generations old now, but it’s still a flagship chip. The CPU can definitely hold its own against the more modern Snapdragon 700 offerings and the GPU is also faster.
The device offers only 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but with a microSD slot supporting cards up to 512GB. However, we sincerely wish they had added a few more gigs of RAM to really justify the device.
The LG Style3 also has a relatively small 6.1” OLED display compared to its peers, with high resolution of 1440p+. The phone’s dimensions have not been listed, but we believe it will be quite a compact offering.
The device also houses an 8MP selfie camera. The dual camera on the back features a 48MP main module and a 5MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The camera department feels like a very basic setup, even for a mid-range smartphone. In addition, the fingerprint reader is also quite the basic capacitive unit mounted on the back.
The battery is just about okay, with a 3,500mAh capacity and no mention of fast charging. Even wireless charging is not supported on this phone. But the phone is waterproof with IP68 and IPX5 ratings.
The new LG Style3 is unlikely to be available globally. Nevertheless, the fact that it is compact, unique, and carries a Snapdragon 845 could make it worthy of being a desired smartphone by many
