LG X Power 2 with massive 4,500 mAh battery to be released in early June for $265
One of the most impressive mid-range smartphones announced by LG at MWC 2017, the X Power 2 is likely to make its debut on the market in June. Although the smartphone will be rolled out globally, the first country to get it is South Korea.
The Korean media reports LG has decided to introduce the X Power 2 in the country in early June. All three major carriers in South Korea will sell the smartphone for around $265 outright.
Apparently, LG wants to get some feedback from consumers regarding the phone's battery capacity before launching the X Power 2 in other countries. As some of you might have read already, the LG X Power 2 will be released in the United States as well, and U.S. Cellular will be among the carriers that will offer the smartphone.
The X Power 2's main selling point is the massive 4,500 mAh battery, as well as the fact that it ships with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box. According to LG, customers will be able to use the X Power 2 for a whole weekend with just one charge.
Moreover, the South Korean handset maker claims that phone's battery can last for 15 hours of video playback or 18 hours of Internet browsing.
LG X Power 2 features a larger 5.5-inch display that supports HD (720p) resolution. The phone is equipped with a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB expandable storage.
The 13-megapixel rear-facing camera features the “zero shutter lag,” which allows users to snap pictures the moment they press the camera button. Also, the front-facing camera comes with a dedicated LED flash for better selfies in low-light environments.
