While the entire industry’s eyes are on LG’s announcement of their flagship phone, LG G6 at the MWC 2017 event, the South Korean company silently announced a new handset, the LG X power 2. The pricing for the phone are not official, but LG confirmed that the phone would go on sale from early March in some Latin America markets.
Touted as the successor to the LG X power, which was released last year, the X power 2 got an upgrade in every aspect when compared to its predecessor. The phone sports a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720*1280 pixels and is aided with an unspecified 1.5GHz octa-core processor. We’re expecting that LG might use the Snapdragon 435 SoC on the phone, but that’s just our assumption.
The X power 2 comes in two RAM variants: 2GB and 1.5GB of RAM. That said, the 1.5GB of RAM variant will be sold in some markets, which LG did not reveal officially. The phone also has 16GB of internal storage, and the storage can be further expandable up to 2TB via a microSD card.
Coming to the USP of the phone, the X power 2 comes with a beefy 4500mAh battery, and LG rates the phone as “operate for an entire weekend without recharging.” Moreover, the LG X power 2 has support for fast charging, which can charge the phone from zero to 100 percent in two hours.
Optics-wise, the X power 2 comes with a 13MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing snapper. Notably, both the cameras have support for LED flash. There are a plethora of connectivity options including the 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, USB 2.0, and USB OTG.
The phone boots Android Nougat out-of-the-box with LG’s UX on top of it. The phone measures 154.7 x 78.1 x 8.4 mm and weighs 164gm. The X power 2 will be available in four colour options: Shiny Titan, Shiny Gold, Shiny Blue, and Black Titan.
Aforesaid, the X power 2 pricing details are not yet official, and LG might showcase the phone at their MWC booth. LG also said that the phone would be coming to other countries such as the US, India, and Europe later in March itself.
