When the LG G3 Stylus was ousted last week, we speculated that it was unlikely to be a full blown competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the current king of the phablet market. Despite boasting the G3 flagship branding and packing a stylus, we figured that LG would steer its newest handset away from Samsung's juggernaut flagship and straight for the mid-range niche.

The Korea Times has today confirmed that the Stylus will indeed be a mid-range effort from LG and will lack the raw power to match the Galaxy Note 3, not to mention the upcoming Note 4. Even the stylus is going to lack the functionality and software of Samsung's S Pen and will be used as a more normal writing and touching tool rather than the productivity based software features the Note series boasts.

Pretty much everything about the Stylus is still an unknown, although its screen is likely to 5.7-inches. The handset is due to launch this month and will at least give consumers some extra phablet choice below flagship, an area of the market that has always been lacking in the large screen area. Let us know in the comments what you think, would you want a mid-range stylus packing phablet?
