The memory may be expanded through a microSD card by up to 2TB. Camera-wise, the Stylo 3 Plus sports a 13-megapixel main shooter with a 1080p video recorder and a 5-megapixel camera in front. The device also comes with a fingerprint reader and a stylus pen equipped with the new Pen Pop 2.0 features.
Upon unboxing, the device is said to be available with the latest Android 7 Nougat OS.
