Beyond the stylus, the LG Q Stylus offers premium features normally found in more expensive phones, such as an advanced camera that rivals the lens of the LG G series. QLens comes standard on the handset, allowing an image of a product to be captured to get more information on where to purchase that item or to learn about similar products. QLens is intelligent enough to recognise images of food, fashion, celebrities and landmarks, for example.
The intelligent camera doesn’t sacrifice on image quality, sporting an 8MP front camera and 16MP rear lens. Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) makes the camera 23% faster than conventional autofocus while Portrait Mode delivers bokeh selfies.
Audiophiles will appreciate the sound quality of the LG Q Stylus. The phone offers the same advanced DTS:X found in the V and G series for up to 7.1 channel 3D surround sound when listening with earphones. USB Type-C fast

“The LG Q Stylus adds another dimension to our series of exceptionally-priced midrange phones that deliver amazing value to consumers,” says Ha Jeung, senior VP and head of LG Electronics’ Mobile Business Division. “This phone is another example of LG’s promise to deliver a wider selection of devices this year with premium features designed to meet the diverse needs of today’s evolving smartphone users.”

HP has confirmed the price of the Chromebook 15 to be $449 for the base model. Intel’s Pentium Gold 4417U processor will power the computer, with 4GB of DDR5 RAM and 64GB of storage. It also has Bang & Olufsen speakers, an HD webcam, and a backlit keyboard.
It doesn’t skimp on ports: it features a microSD card slot, 2 USB 3.1 ports, and one USB 3.1 port. HP claims the laptop can run for up to 13 hours of battery life on a single charge.
It weighs a mere 1.8kg, while dimensions on thickness have yet to be published. The laptop is confirmed to launch in the US, but HP has yet to confirm if it’s going to release this device in other markets.

Microsoft’s Chief of Surface, Panos Panay, introduced the new 85-inch model at Microsoft’s Surface Event in New York this week, and briefly showed it between two of the Surface 2S 50-inch panels.
The panel is likely to include features of the 2S, including a removable cartridge that will be upgraded next year. This will allow businesses to upgrade their computers with a new CPU, RAM, and GPU, and won’t have to replace the expensive display panel.
Pricing and regional availability has not yet been announced, but the company says it’ll be available in 2020.
