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.

I have an X-power one, LG and Carrier bloatware. if you touch the rear plastic housing it makes crackling noises like it is about to break. THE WORST PICTURES for a 2016 phone. Battery is nice, lacking in too many other things.

If this is available for US Cellular does that mean it has the CDMA radios to work on VZW as well? I may be interested in it with a battery of that size.

of course LG could have added a better CPU (snapdragon) and a better camera. but those have higher prices, so with 265 dollars they still want to earn money and promote especially the battery. this phone, with this hardware should cost around 190, but they want to earn money by fooling people into thinking the battery is fantastic.

I dislike the fact that it's using the Mediate 6750. Imagine if it had the 625 inside...Jesus the battery life will be like 150hrs on GSM!

I don't understand after all the money people spend on flagships, why can't they put batteries of that magnitude in high-end flagships. I mean they do have a lot of features that's battery intensive and/or would motivate you to use your phone more.

"why can't they put batteries of that magnitude in high-end flagships." Because there is just not enough space for batteries of that magnitude in flagship phones.
