MetroPCS LG Stylo 4 Specs and Availability Date Leaked and it Includes 600 Mhz band 71 Support

lg-stylo-4-specs-leak
It looks like the LG Stylo 4 is going to be released soon as the first MetroPCS phone with 600MHz or LTE Band 71 support.

The news was first spotted by AndroidForums user, LoJoGalaxy, who shared photos of the brochure he received from someone who works for the T-Mobile prepaid brand. The photos confirm the specs of the device and the availability date.

One of the selling points of this device is its stylus support. Although it's nowhere close to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it's interesting to see a stylus become available for a budget-friendly device. The other specs of the LG Stylo 4 include a 6.2-inch FullVision display with a 2160x1080 resolution. From inside, the phone runs on a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM, 32 GB of onboard storage, and memory expansion of up to 2000GB with a microSD card.

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the Stylus 4 is that it supports 600 Mhz LTE band 71. T-Mobile has nationwide band 71 spectrum which it is rapidly deploying in rural areas to where the uncarrier's coverage is currently quite sparse.

The brochure also confirms the device will have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF). It also carries a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with wide-angle lens. The phone will also carry a 3000mAh battery.

The LG Stylo 4 is said to be available starting Monday, June 18th. Upon unboxing, users can expect the device to run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

As for the price, there's no official word yet on how much the LG Stylo 4 is expected to cost. But since it comes as a successor to the LG Stylo 3 and LG Stylo 3 Plus, it could follow their footsteps and have a budget-friendly price tag of around $200. This price, however, has not yet been confirmed.

  1. Still running our Stylo 2 Plus pones from June 2016 that work fast but this bigger screen model is tempting. We moved them to TMobile One 55 plans in March 2018 for unlimited everything for $60 for 2 lines at that time.
    Very satisfied with the TMObile network that MetroPCS also uses (owned by TMobile)

  2. 2GB of RAM in 2018?

    Pass.

    1. @anonymous 9:05 PM.. all of the other specs are great, though. Consider giving it a chance. With how smooth Oreo works, you may not even realize it only has 2 gb ram.

    2. Talking to the second person named @Anonymous. It doesn't matter if the operating system is smooth, that only accounts for the UX. 2 gigs of RAM means frequent game lag and closing apps. There's other phones in this price with a P25 clocking 2.5ghz with 4gbs of RAM priced at $150USD. The phone I was looking for was called the VERNEE Mix 2 I was going to get it for $140USD. American's would be stupid to buy this phone. I love LG but they need to step it up. No one really cares about snapdragons. MediaTek seems like a better place to go seeing how all of there phone now come with 4 or more gigs of RAM at around $150USD.

      Delete
    3. Qualcomm has a modem that makes it cheap and easy to add Band 71 support to moderately priced phones. Mediatek isn't supporting Band 71 yet; when will they?

      Most people aren't brave enough to gamble on a no-name brand phone with unknown quality, security and support. And these cheap phones are compromised, nowhere near as satisfying as a good mobile gaming platforms (eg, Nintendo Switch), if gaming is the deciding factor.

    4. Look, here's the thing. The Chinese market companies like ZTE and others aren't afraid to take a big step into the unknown despite the possible outcome. Huawei grew to be so big because they did. Doogee took a big step and these aren't even brands really ...with that being said a big name like LG that everyone knows still cowers from making there expensive phones not worth it. Think about it this way. If the Q Stylus has 4 gigs of RAM at $399 and this phone had 4 gigs of RAM would you buy the $399 phone or the one the $239 because there pretty much the same? People don't care if they get a device that has a fast network as long as it works. Most people use wifi because there service plans have a hefty price tag for unlimited data plans. Most people who buy these phones buy them for looks and the feeling that they are premium for a steal. But when you put a middle range price $240-$499 on a low tier phone people start to ask China. "Hey, what fast phones with a network that I use can you offer me for $150?" They reply with hundreds of phones that may even out perform an iPhone with a bigger and better screen. People will buy your products as long as you make what people want. Not by not taking a risk then highballing your customers.

      Delete
    5. Phones are important to people now, so brands matter. Sales of no-name, Chinese phones are a tiny percentage of the market.

  3. Now that ZTE is having major problems getting their products into the US, this Stylo 4 could be one of the only 6+ inch phablets available from MetroPCS.

    It's not a bad phone, all told. 6.2", 13 MP shooter, 32 GB storage, 1080p, Band 71 and 66(?) ... Could the RAM be better? Sure. But it's good enough for medium use.

    If they offer it for less than $100 with port-in, I may take it, either from Metro or Cricket.

    3. The ZTE company being fined and driven out of business due to being caught aiding terrorists means no support for their products if you happen to buy them.

      Which is actually no different from the situation when the company was thriving and wasn't in any trouble at all.

  4. 3000mah battery in a 6.2 inch HD+ pixel screen device that is searching for band 71 will be a quick battery drain

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Every device has a battery that is way too weak and doesn't last nearly long enough. This is because the manufacturers have forced on us that the idea of phones that are way too thin at the expense of good battery life is a good thing.

      So this 6.2 inch phone will drain its battery in 8 hours while one with a smaller screen will drain it in 9 hours. This is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. There's no good reason why we can't have the batteries last 8 days instead of 8 hours, other than very poor design on the part of the manufacturers.

      You are an ideal customer for a battery case.
      Just buy one, and you can watch 12 movies without charging instead of 6.

  7. They're giving the iPhone SE for free when this phone should be free.

    1. no, the iphone se should be free.

    2. Your comment suggests that the iPhone SE maybe shouldn't be free.

      But Apple has been specifically targeting the SE as the budget way to enter into the Apple ecosystem (basically taking over the place of the plastic iPhone 5C).

      For Apple, it's a way to get even more people onboard and paying $12 / year for iCloud and $5 / year for games and paying for the occasional Lightning cables and AirPods.

      The providers push it because it attracts Apple users, and then keeps them tied into the provider for 6 or 12 months.

      Those subscriber fees and iCloud fees are worth the initial subsidy.

      And on top of all that, the SE is relatively old technology, and probably about to replaced by a newer version. So Apple needs to extract all value out of it now, before the refresh.

      Delete
    3. I’ll keep my SE for at least another year or two. I’ll get the free battery replace at the end of the year. It’s a powerful, great little device.

      Delete
    4. "Little" is right, Jon. My fingers and eyeballs ache at the thought of the SE.

      Delete
    5. I'm looking forward to Apple killing the iPhone SE. The cost-cutting reasons which made us have such too-tiny phones years ago no longer exist.

      Like with the Notch and removing headphone jack, the Android world will follow Apple's lead and completely eliminate phones with screens smaller than 5". It's long overdue.

      Delete
    6. iPhone SE will not be killed. Millions of Americans still like this powerful, well-made, handy phone, and its assembled in India (and maybe Brazil?) as well. This gives Apple a lower-price device for Indians who do not want a used iPhone (taxes are much higher there, especially on imported phones).

      Delete
    7. And many more millions will buy the successor to the iPhone SE which surely will be properly sized and no longer too tiny and cramped.

      There's definitely room for an iPhone in this price category. But no good reason really to keep making one that is awkwardly under-sized like the existing iPhone SE. Hobbiton and the Shire will lament the loss of a tiny phone, but everywhere else they will rejoice and the sales on Apple's entry line model will surge.

  8. If it comes in at a decent price, I think it will be time to upgrade. I am waiting for a 600mhz capable phone before I do any upgrading. No sense in getting a new phone now.

    1. I am waiting to see of the merger goes through. If it is approved, I will not upgrade until the phones with dot six and two dot five are available. If it is blocked, this could be my next device.

    1. It's unfortunate that you have to subscribe to the expensive AppleCare Program in order to get defective parts replaced.

      Delete
    2. Do you have a source for those price predictions?

      It it's accurate, then:

      $29 for the phone
      $10 for a Tracfone AT&T or AT&T Prepaid number to port in
      $50 for first month of service
      $10 for the activation fee
      $25 for the ebay unlock

      = $124 all-in

    3. It's unfortunate that you don't know that one year of AppleCare is included with every iPhone at no extra cost.

      Delete
    4. I do, but that doesn't get Apple off the hook for charging people $29 to replace defective batteries.

      Delete
    5. I'm glad all those people complained that Apple slowed their iPhones with worn-out, end-of-life batteries to prevent random shutdowns. I got two batteries replaced for $29 that were more than two years old and out of warranty. My iPhones are now worth more if I resell them, but I'm going to keep one 6S for another year or two and save even more money.
      Thanks, whiners! Thanks, greedy lawyers! Thanks, Apple!

    6. "It's unfortunate that you don't know that one year of AppleCare is included with every iPhone at no extra cost."

      That's because it's figured into the price of the phone.

    7. Nice way to "spin" Apple intentionally putting such bugs in its software instead of simply replacing the defective parts for free.

      "I got two batteries replaced for $29 that were more than two years old and out of warranty"

      Good going! You paid $58 to Apple to replace defective parts that the company should have replaced for free. And you are happy about it. I guess maybe what some say about blind iSheeple here might actually be true....

      Thankfully, the rest of us see through it. Hence the lawsuits over Apple knowingly shipping defective parts and also the bugs in IOS.

      Delete
    8. And here is a very recent article about the new lawsuits over the bad IOS bugs related to batteries. I thought shipping out OS updates without testing them first was supposed to be "just an Android thing".... but it is clear it is not.

      "Do NOT update your iPhone: Frustrated Apple users are complaining that iOS 11.4 is killing their batteries"

      ...Disgruntled iPhone customers have filed at least 59 lawsuits accusing Apple of slowing down their phones so they would be encouraged to buy a new one.

      The case could become one of the biggest legal challenges since it was first debuted in 2007, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    9. HaHA! The slowdown is a feature, not a bug. Only greedy, ungrateful users and lawyers would rather have their iPhones shut down frequently, at random when they are too lazy to keep their old, worn-out battery charged. Of course they sue whenever they think they have an excuse to get rich for doing .... nothing. Shake down the rich corporation - they'll pay to make us go away! The class-action lawyers will get virtually all the money, so it's really all about keeping them employed.

      Deterioration of all Li-ion batteries over time is a feature too, not a "defect."
      Go take the course at batteryuniversity, since you don't get that.

    10. "Only greedy, ungrateful users"

      Wow. That's a terrible attitude toward people who paid top dollar for Apple products and are feeling "entitled" to nothing more than an actual working non-defective phone... and not an OS version designed intentionally to wreck the phone. defective batteries. and the scam of being charged $29 to replace said defective batteries.

    12. There is no "conspiracy"... Apple released phones with defective batteries, forces people to pay then $29 to fix the broken phones Apple shipped, and thrn compound the problem with OS bugs *cough* "features* that cripple phones.

    1. Really? They replaces defective batteries on the iPhone 6S at no cost after AppleCare had expired. They replaced expensive iPhone 6 screens at no cost after AppleCare had expired, even though many of them had suffered some drop damage. They gave customers free iPhone 4 cases when people held the phone a certain way that partially blocked antenna reception. They replaced some Lightning ports after AppleCare had expired. Which other cellphone companies do this? And AppleCare transfers to all subsequent owners, unlike virtually all other smartphone warranties.

      If you think phone parts should be free when they wear out after a year, buy AppleCare+. You can find it discounted from online authorized dealers if you think it's too expensive.

    2. Phone snobbery has nothing to do with pointing out the facts of badly-designed under-featured phones.

      You can get much better phones with 4 gigabytes of memory for not much more money.

      Am I a snob against low-priced phones? Of course not. Maybe I am a snob against low-priced phones that have a poor feature-set compared to other low priced phones. And there's a huge difference.

    3. Oops; my mistake. Only a reverse phone snob would buy no-brand Chinese phones with unknown quality, safety and support, and puts down people who want the quality and support provided by a respected, top Korean name brand.

      Delete
    4. Don't blame LG for the RAM, blame MetroPCS. When LG announced this phone they said would sell for either 3 or 4GB RAM. Metro told them to remove RAM so they could hit a lower price point. If you like the phone otherwise, wait and it may be for sale with 3 or 4GB RAM elsewhere. You will pay more.

      Delete
    5. LG has a choice in whether or not to damage its brand name by shipping a phone with 2GB, which in today's environment is like shipping a defective device. The blame, again, lies with entirely with LG. They could have kept a better reputation and let MetroPCS carry one of the acknowledged "we build 'em bad to begin with" trash-can-scrapings brands like Alcatel and BLU.

      LG still has aspirations of being a competitor to Samsung. It does not serve this mission to build a defective phone just because MetroPCS asks them to.

    6. "Only a reverse phone snob would buy no-brand Chinese phones with unknown quality, safety and support, and puts down people who want the quality and support provided by a respected, top Korean name brand."

      I am not sure what a reverse phone snob is because the double-negative aspect makes my brain hurt. But what you describe makes BLU the ideal perfect phone for them.

    7. "The blame, again, lies with entirely with LG. They could have kept a better reputation.."
      Ahh, no. LG should have turned down millions of sales to MetroPCS, driving up unit costs for sales to everyone else? Which would have lost them even more sales and money? Selling fewer phones for more money but less revenue would really help their "reputation?" Not a good way to compete for mass market with Samsung.
      All because an anonymous blogger thinks a phone with 2GB of RAM is a "defective device?" LOL.

    8. Its a pretty awesome phone for $179, if you want an epic phone dont expect to pay anything under $200. LG and ZTE make phones that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye, good color, and the best part, affordable. Sure, youre not going to be able to run a million apps at the same time, but it works perfectly fine with moderate use.

      Delete
    9. I am the opposite of a reverse phone snob, and I believe that not having less than 2 gigs of RAM is a positive thing compared to not having no more than 4 gigs of RAM.

      I don't know of any apps that no one might not need that won't run on this amount of memory. This LG phone isn't a bad choice for those who aren't not seeking value.

  13. I have had both the ZTE Max and now the ZTE Blade, I honestly wouldn't go to another phone mainly because I have awesome battery life in my Blade, I have awesome picture quality and love love love the Type C charging port! No more screwed up cables to replace or phone port going bad because I plugged in the charger wrong!
    Looking at the new Stylo 4 only thing I can truly say I like better is the 6.2 screen and that's not alot because I already have 6" screen with better picture quality for photos and such?
    Why would I trade until something alota BETTER comes along! No way!

  16. Enough about the 2 gigs of RAM. The Stylo 4 has already been released by Metro and I got one. Not point in doing pros and cons. IMHO, it's a radical departure from any previous Stylos, in design and features. At first glance,The phone looks alot like the S8. A 6.2 inch beautiful display sporting 391ppi. Next, and for me a make or break feature, audio. I'm shocked at how amazing it sounds for the 200 price tag. Now, I'm talking with headphones. I hardly ever listen to the speaker on any phone. The audio is exceptionality clean and detailed. It also has a 10 band global EQ,7.1 DTS on board, and plenty of driving power. There are also some new settings in developer options that allow you to change Bluetooth sampling and bit rates. It has support for aptx HD which on this phone, produces amazing definition. I can't give any insight on camera performance because I hardly ever snap pictures. As far as performance, it comes with the new SD450, so video rendering, gaming, and multitasking are on par with the 625, as it basically is minus 200mghz. In everyday use, it is lighting fast for the money. I'm definitely giving this phone a very deserved thumb ups. LG really brought it on this one. It's 200 with 100 off with port in at Metro.
