LG X Power 2 launches globally this month, large battery in tow
LG just announced that its X power 2 (a smartphone unveiled back in February at MWC 2017) is being released around the world starting this month. The handset will be available in North America first, followed by Asia, Europe, Latin America, and other markets, and may have different names (depending on region).

Like the original X power from 2016, the LG X power 2 packs a large battery - a 4500 mAh unit, to be exact. LG proudly states that this battery is "designed to last an entire weekend before requiring recharging." Official numbers show that the phone should be able to provide 26 hours of talk time, 19 hours of web browsing, or 18 hours of video viewing with a fully charged battery. We'll make sure to test that as soon as we get our hands on the new device.

Long lasting battery aside, the LG X power 2 isn't made to turn heads. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek processor, further featuring a 5.5-inch 720p display, LTE, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. You're also getting a 5 MP selfie camera, and a 13 MP rear camera, each having its own LED flash. At launch, Android Nougat will be on board.

LG says that pricing for the X power 2 will depend on market. Not long ago, we heard that the handset should cost around $260 in South Korea, so it may cost less in the US (usually, phones are a bit more expensive in Korea).

Great move. While this entry level device gets a monster sized battery their flagship phones just have to deal with tiny ones.

Phone Manufacturers - Please give us flagship phones with 4500+ mAh batteries. The specs on this phone are okay but don't cut it.

Thanks to Apple and their anemic slim phones with tiny batteries and the push to make everything thin, don't expect a large battery in a flagship because they'd have to make the phone thicker and that isn't premium.
