Over the past few years, LG’s smartphone manufacturing business has run dry. The company’s once so popular flagship model G-Series has lost it’s identity in front of key chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and new players like Realme.

The LG Style 3 comes with a dual rear camera setup and includes a traditional display notch design. LG has also provided its OLED FullVision display.

Additionally, the phone packs dual rear camera setup that houses a 48-megapixel primary sensor along with an f/1.8 lens and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.2 lens. Further, the phone has an 8-megapixel selfie camera at the front that has an f/1.9 lens.
On the storage part, the LG Style 3 has 64GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB). Connectivity options on the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Other key highlights of the LG Style 3 include an IP68-certified dust- and water-resistant build, dedicated Google Assistant button, and NFC support. The phone also doubles as a mobile wallet.
