Two days before its MWC 2017 press conference, LG has announced a new mid-range smartphone with a large batter, the X power 2. The smartphone succeeds the X power from last year, which was also a lower mid-range smartphone with an emphasis on battery stamina.
The X power 2 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display offering 720 x 1280 HD resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 267 pixels per inch. It runs on an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, paired with either 1.5GB or 2GB of RAM, depending on the market. In all markets, the smartphone will ship with 16GB of onboard storage, which will be further expandable via a microSD card.
Since the X power 2 is a mid-range device, you don’t get a fancy dual-camera setup at the back. Instead, the smartphone features a 13MP resolution camera at the back and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. In the connectivity department, the X power 2 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, 4G LTE, and microUSB 2.0. LG has managed to fit a large 4500mAh capacity battery inside the smartphone, with support for fast charging.
LG will be showing the X power 2 at the MWC 2017 next week in Barcelona. The handset will go on sale in Latin America next month, followed by markets in United States, Asia, Europe and other regions. Color options include Black Titan, Shiny Titan, Shiny Gold, and Shiny Blue.
