LG G3 Stylus leaks in official video, takes on Galaxy Note with big screen and pen

An official video reveals the as-yet-unannounced phablet-sized spin-off from LG's flagship smartphone.

The LG G3 has a great screen and a camera with lasers in, but one thing it doesn't have is a pen. The LG G3 Stylus solves that, appearing in a new video showing off its Galaxy Note -rivalling phablet size and stylus.

The LG G3 Stylus is the pen-pushing partner to LG's flagship the LG G3 , which went on sale this summer. The other spin-off of the G3 is the LG G3 S , also known as the G3 Beat in Asia.

Although it's yet to be properly announced by LG, the G3 Stylus is more than a rumour: it appears in an official video published by the folks at LG. The video is an ad for the G3 Beat, a breezy fairy tale of boy-meets-girl-then-boy-nearly-breaks-girl's-phone. At the end of the video the G3 and G3 Beat are joined by a third phone, complete with a pen, identified as the G3 Stylus.

The G3 Stylus is clearly bigger than its G3 stablemates, suggesting it's a phablet -- an oversized phone that nears tablet proportions. Phablets are traditionally associated with pens thanks to the first phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note. Each Note comes with a stylus. Every Note has launched in September, so we're expecting to see the Note 4 make its debut in a couple of months too.

The G3 Stylus has yet to be officially announced, so LG may well pull the video.
