But while Samsung's Galaxy Note line walks along the path of the high-end and sometimes experimental, the LG Stylus 2 Plus clearly has its sights set on delivering an affordable writing experience.
The Stylus 2 Plus gets a more or less recent processor, a 1.4 GHz octa-core, which is most likely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 415.
As announced last February, this one utilizes a nano-coated tip that LG promises is more accurate than the rubbery tips of most capacitive styluses.
There is also a Pen Keeper feature that alerts you if you accidentally left the stylus out of its silo.
The LG Stylus 2 Plus comes in Titan, Gold, and Brown color options, with what looks like a texture, most likely plastic, back.
Rollout starts in Taiwan today, with Asia, South America, Europe, and North America to follow soon.
