LG has announced yet another handset ahead of Mobile World Congress 2016, the LG Stylus 2, which will be released in South Korea first.

Yesterday, LG unveiled its new X series, but it wasn't done with its pre-MWC announcements. It has since announced a sequel to the G4 Stylus, the Stylus 2.

The LG Stylus 2's pen features a nano-coated tip, which should improve its accuracy, and there are some nifty features related to this pen. Pen Keeper notifies users when the stylus bay is empty, so it'll be harder to misplace the stylus, while Pen Pop shows a pop-up menu when the stylus is removed, offering shortcuts such as Pop Memo and Pop Scanner.

In terms of specs, the LG Stylus 2 features a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and 1.5GB RAM. It packs 16GB of storage, which can be expanded via microSD, and features a 13MP snapper and an 8MP front-facing camera.

The Stylus 2 will initially be released in South Korea from next month and will be "exceptionally priced." It will later be released in more Asian markets, as well as in Europe and the US. The Stylus 2 will be available in Brown, Titan, and White.
