We wrote about LG's 2015 smartphone flagship strategy earlier and dropped a little hint toward the G Pen stylus, so we thought now would be a good time to elaborate on that. LG has being doing plenty like Samsung this year, launching a flagship that disrupted its compatriot and then releasing multiple devices in numerous niches just like Sammy tends to do.It seems that LG will take another leaf out of Samsung's book by launching a stylus just like the S Pen found in the Galaxy Note range. Like that piece of tech, the G Pen is going to be more functional than your everyday stylus and will interact with specific software on the LG device. The company has already dabbled in using a stylus on the aptly named LG G3 Stylus, although that was a minimum function tool on a low end smartphone. Alongside the G Pen, LG has filed a trademark application for something called "G Scrawl" that sounds like software to let the pen control the screen of a smartphone. It is still unclear what handset the G Pen will make its debut with. The G Pro phablet series is reportedly set to be discontinued, meaning the most likely candidate will be the G4 flagship. However, perhaps that will come too soon for the G Pen, so LG could have a new phablet range in the works for late in 2015.
