Fellow Korean giant, LG, has sought to take on Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, launching its new mid-tier ‘Q Stylus’ in Australia for A$649.
Like Samsung’s Note, the Q Stylus features an electronic ‘pen’, however, its affordable price tag targets price-consumers consumers who don’t require mammoth specs.
LG’s Q Stylus is available to buy in Australia from Harvey Norman in ‘Aurora Black’, with no ‘Morrocan Blue’ option.
Like Samsung’s Galaxy Note, the Q Stylus allows users to save handwritten notes/memos even when the phone screen is off.
Despite its mid-range price, LG claims the Q Stylus incorporates several features (e.g. DTS:X audio) previously found in its flagship phones.
As previously reported, Samsung has announced it’s moving away from a flagship-focused mobile strategy, towards a diversified mid-range portfolio.
Future Samsung phones will reportedly debut new capabilities on mid-range handsets, rather than reserving features for flagship devices.
The news comes as the global smartphone market continues to constrict, specifically in the premium market.
