While everyone is anticipating the LG G5, the company’s new flagship smartphone, LG just announced another handset that they’ll be showing off at their upcoming press conference and then again at Mobile World Congress immediately afterwards: the LG Stylus 2.

A follow-up to the G4 Stylus, the LG Stylus 2 sports the same 5.7-inch screen but the thickness has been shrunk down from 9.4mm to 7.4mm. It’s lighter as well, going from 163g to 145g. Despite the thinner size, it still has room for a 3,000mAh removable battery and a microSD card slot.

The stylus itself is now referred to as a pen. I suppose they wanted to avoid the phrase “the Stylus’ stylus.” The “pen” uses a “nano-coated tip” – I’m not going to pretend to know what that means – instead of the rubber-tipped stylus of the G4 Stylus. A new Calligraphy Pen font will allow users to write as if they’re using a fountain pen.

If you’re worried about losing your stylus, worry not: a new feature will alert you when the phone is in motion but the stylus isn’t in its holding bay.

As for the rest of its hardware, the LG Stylus 2 is rocking a 1.2GHz Quad-Core chip, 1.5GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The back of the phone houses a 13-megapixel camera and the handset will come in white, brown, and a metallic shade referred to as titan.

LG has said that the phone will be given an appropriate mid-tier price.
