LG announces the X power 2 - Android Nougat and 4500 mAh battery on board28
While we're waiting for LG to announce its G6 flagship at MWC 2017, the company today unveiled another new smartphone: LG X power 2.
Replacing the original LG X power (released in 2016), the X power 2 sports a 5.5-inch 720p display, and packs a very generous 4500 mAh battery. Both the screen and the battery are larger than those of the original X power.
According to LG, the X power 2 can "operate for an entire weekend without recharging." It could also play videos for about 15 hours, provide navigational directions for 14 hours, or let you or surf the web for about 18 hours - all on a single charge. Furthermore, the new phone comes with fast charging, so its 4500 mAh battery should be fully charged in 2 hours. Obviously, we'll have to test these claims once the device becomes available.
Running Android 7 Nougat, the LG X power 2 features LTE connectivity, a 1.5 GHz octa-core processor of unspecified provenience, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and 2 GB of RAM (or 1.5 GB in some markets). As for cameras, the handset has a 13 MP rear one, and a 5 MP front facing one, both with LED flashes.
The X power 2 measures 154.7 x 78.1 x 8.4 mm, weighs 164 grams, and will be sold in several color variants, including black, titanium, blue, and gold. LG did not reveal pricing details, but it said that the handset would be released starting March, and should reach the US a bit later. The new smartphone will be showcased at MWC 2017, so we're likely going to spend some hands-on time with it. Stay tuned!
