Sprint to Add LG G Stylo to Boost Mobile, Sprint Prepaid

lg-g-stylo-5

For whatever reason, right now phablets (or phones larger than 5 inches) are all the craze, and Sprint recently announced that it will be adding a new phone and stylus option for customers looking to get a larger handset. Set to be released in June, the LG G Stylo is a pretty good-sized phone which includes a handy stylus for drawing and note taking. The LG G Stylo is expected to be available on Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid on June 7, 2015.

The LG G Stylo is a low to mid-range device with mediocre specs that will be suitable for most consumers. Here’s a peek at what’s under the hood:

  • Android Lollipop 5.0
  • 5.7 inch screen with 720p resolution
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor; Snapdragon 410
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB memory
  • 8 MP back camera
  • 5 MP front camera
  • removable battery

It is worth noting that T-Mobile has announced this phone already for its postpaid consumers. This is the first mention I’ve seen of it being available on prepaid, however. The LG G Stylo is expected to retail for a modest $199 on both Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid. Since Boost cannot unlock its phones, I might suggest users get the phone for Sprint Prepaid and then simply activate it on Boost.
