New LG Stylus 2 model puts DAB+ radio on your phone

LG Stylus 2

LG had launched the Stylus 2 smartphone last month, and it has now gone on to unveil a special version of it which comes with support for DAB+ radio. It’s the world’s first smartphone to do so, by the way.

Now for the main question of what DAB+ radio means. It’s actually a new and advanced digital radio standard which offers a better quality than traditional FM and also has the ability to send song and station information along with the audio, aside from images. Moreover, the LG Stylus 2 does not consume data while streaming your radio channels, unlike all the radio apps out there.

The DAB+ radio channel is currently operational in forty countries worldwide. It’s hence that only some of those have been chosen by LG to release this device in. Their names include Australia, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.

Here’s a neat look at the specs of the new DAB+ model of the LG Stylus 2:

Display – 5.7-inch, 1280 x 720-pixel resolution
OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
CPU: 1.2GHz quad core processor
Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD
Cameras: 13MP rear, 8MP front
Size: 155mm by 79.6mm by 7.4mm
Weight: 145g
Battery: 3,000mAh battery

This new version of the Stylus 2 isn’t quite different from the original model, except for the fact that it grabs 2GB of RAM rather than 1.5GB. The other specs of this LG phone remain the same. To remind you, as its name suggests, this device adopts pen stylus input support.

Unfortunately, the exact price and release date information of the new DAB+ version of the LG Stylus 2 is not available at the moment. We’ll have more on it when additional details are out into the open.
