LG's promised trickle of details leading up to the G5's debut is in full force, but it's also teasing out at least one other model. Like last year, the outfit is selling a stylus-equipped phablet, the LG Stylus 2. Here's to hoping that the Korean tech company keeps that nomenclature from the prepared release rather than making us Yanks and folks in Korea request a "Stylo" again.

Other than that, the phone has a few smart features to go with its latest pointer/input method. Taking the stylus out of its holder triggers Pen Pop, a shortcut menu where the Pop Memo and Pop Scanner apps reside. The Stylus 2 also has built-in tools to make sure you don't leave the fancy finger-replacement behind as well. Should the phone detect motion when the stylus tunnel is empty, Pen Keeper will pop an alert.

As far as hardware goes, expect a 5.7-inch, 1280 x 720 screen; 1.2 GHz processor and a 13 MP camera on the back. Nothing too crazy in that regard.

The company's big reveal is set for next week on the 21st, but if these teasers keep it up, there might not be much new to talk about by this year's Mobile World Congress in Spain.
