LG Stylo 2 Plus coming to MetroPCS, get a free folio case for pre-registering

One year after MetroPCS launched the LG G Stylo, it’s been revealed that the phablet’s successor is making its way to Metro, too.

MetroPCS has revealed that it will launch the LG Stylo 2 Plus, and if you pre-register between June 10 and June 26 and then buy your Stylo 2 Plus before July 31, you’ll get a free folio case for your new phone. Metro’s promo image shows that this folio case exposes part of the screen so that you can do things like answer phone calls with the cover on.

As for the LG Stylo 2 Plus itself, it features a 5.7-inch display, 13-megapixel rear camera, fingerprint reader, and of course, a stylus. LG will be equipping the Stylo 2 Plus with some special software features to help you use that stylus, like a Calligraphy Pen Mode that’ll transform your handwriting into “beautiful script,” as well as a Screen-off Memo feature that’ll let you jot down notes without turning on your display.

MetroPCS hasn’t given specifics about the LG Stylo 2 Plus’s launch, so I’ve reached out to them for more info. Given both the pre-register end date and this leaked image, it looks like the Stylo 2 Plus could become available on June 27. As for pricing, the original G Stylo launched at a price of $199, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Stylo 2 Plus hit store shelves with a similar price tag.

    It’s rumored to have an octa-core processor. I’ll be all over it if that turns out to be true. I could care less about a fingerprint reader. I’ll be happy with 1080p HD and more processor horsepower.

    • g2a5b0e

      You mentioned something about the number of cores in a post the other day. I’m not sure if you’re just trolling or what, but if you seriously think the number of cores a processor has is the biggest determining factor in its power, you clearly don’t know much about tech.

      In fact, the two fastest ARM processors available for smartphones in the U.S. today, the Apple A9 & the Snapdragon 820, are respectively dual & quad core.

        Well stated, well stated…

      • John

        I agree and I’d like to clarify that you’re talking about Apple the company, not the fruit that grows on trees.

        • g2a5b0e

          Thanks for the clarification. We don’t want anyone misconstruing my words here.

      • Drewski

        Huh?? How is he trolling?? He’s not being a troll. He was just specifically stating his opinion about being not being care some about a certain feature and what he has heard about the lg stylo 2 plus phone. Gosh no need to be ignorant.

        • g2a5b0e

          First off, it wasn’t a statement. I clearly indicated I wasn’t sure. Secondly, ignorant about what? Work on your sentence structure before you call someone ignorant.

      • Matt

        Where did I specifically write that it is the “biggest determining factor?” I never did so you jumped to a conclusion. Processor, memory, bus speeds, and graphics chipsets together are important. Please revisit English 101.

        • g2a5b0e

          My English is just fine. You don’t have to “specifically write” something for it implied through a statement. I would never say “if a chip is octo-core, I would be all over it” because a an octo-core chip could be a flagship chip as well as low-end garbage.

          Thanks for the advice. I won’t.

    • DrakenFX

      this Device have indeed 1080p Display and have Octa-Core Snapdragon 430 base and depends which version the US or better say MetroPCS is going to have , we will see 3GB Ram if not just 2GB ram

      • Matt

        I’m hoping it has 3GB of RAM. Marshmallow is memory hungry.

  • riverhorse

    3gb/32gb, fm radio, Marshmallow, enhanced notes / Stylus / photo software…
    If @ dual sim would be outstanding.
    A mod for disabling / transparenting capacitative buttons would increase viewable screen from 5-1/2 to 5-3/4″… allowing double bonus of increased resolution and size.
    Still no IR or USB Host, would gladly have traded the 3rd ram GB for additional 32 of storage.

    FANTASTIC pricing – $149, $99 if porting in.

    The $ makes the Stylo 2 Plus a great backup / holdover phone until the upcoming Fall monsters from Asus, Moto, Note, etc.

    • John

      And what was the question?

      • Verizonthunder

        He might be intoxicated; just another something for nothing bastard

        • riverhorse

          I’m buying it. Run your post by mommy.

        • Verizonthunder

          You clearly did not even try reading my post.

    • Matt

      Honestly, who cares about the built in memory!? That’s what the SD card slot is for. Would love to have the 3rd gig of RAM because Marshmallow tends to be memory hungry.

      • riverhorse

        Yah, I want more ram too, but at that price point and improved resolution something has to give…
        I’m seeing too many flaky SD’s lately to sleep peacefully.
        I have 16gb totally maxed out- in spite of app2sd everything possible- and I’m doing without lots of desired apps.
        I’m sure I’ll max out 32gb right away.
        At 64/128 I can have multiple users, convert key user apps to to system, re-backup SD to internal, things on internal run faster, android grabs empty internal storage to complement ram…

        • Matt

          You do have to buy a good quality SD card. Get one rated for digital cameras. These are faster and more reliable.

        • riverhorse

          PS Google just released patch for Marshmallow memory leak…

      • Drewski

        Excuse you? No need to be selfish like that. No need to say who cares about the built im memory crap. There are others thats so thankful to have such more added memory to their smartphones, unlike you. No need to be rude like that Bro. I feel offended and hurt by your comment there Bro.

        • Tom Locke

          If you are offended and hurt by that harmless comment then you need to check yourself, no need for him to apologize. His comment wasn’t directed at you, but you’re taking it personally. People with weak ego’s always get offended and hurt easily.

    • Ryan

      I’m not 100% sure your thought is accurate. I saw those specs as well but those were on the model with a 16mp camera. We all know the original stylo had two variants with lower specs for the version with the lower mp camera. My feeling is the mpcs version will be for the 2 plus what Sprint boost and vm got for the original. The mpcs 2 plus will have the 13mp this we know. I can only hope that that’s the only difference but history says it won’t be. I guess we’ll see in a couple weeks

      • riverhorse

        Maybe. There are versions of the model with the fingerprint reader @ 2/16 too, but here’s the thing: Tmo is getting it too…
        So we’d need a first of Tmo getting better version than Metro, of same phone.
        And if we get the lesser model, who else(lte) would get the better one?
        I’ll stick with my present bet.

      • riverhorse

        You are totally correct, sir!!!
        I posted specs up top.

  • Nuyoka Co

    The boost mobile version on YouTube videos show it being a tidy bit slower then the first version also does not have laser focusing for the camera or NFC so is kind of a step backwards.

    • Drewski

      Wrong. The Boost Mobile LG Stylo 2 has Lessor ram/Lessor features verses metroPCS LG Stylo 2 Plus one. So therefore what makes think the LG Stylo 2 Plus phone will be the same as the LG Stylo 2 on Boost Mobile’s side of things? Boost Mobile just has a regular lg stylo 2 verses the lg stylo 2 plus version. Do you see The difference now?

      • Nuyoka Co

        Did not realize the Metro version had the word plus at the end. I’ve been looking for some specs and have found nothing. I literally got my Stylo this morning and want to get another for my girl, but am contemplating if I should wait a couple of weeks and get the Plus and give her this one?

        • Drewski

          Oh okay, Understandable there. No worries. You just did not know, that’s all. :) Hey I too make mistakes just like everyone else does too. Hehe. Anyways, nice to meet you there new friend of mines. :)
