In the next few days, LG is expected to announce its upcoming G6 flagship at Mobile World Congress. But that’s not all, as the South Korean phone maker will also demo its new X Power 2 at the trade show.
As a followup to the X Power, the X Power 2 packs a high-capacity, non-removable battery (4,500mAh, compared to the 4,100mAh of its predecessor). LG claims it can play 15 hours of continuous video, but we won’t know for sure until we test it ourselves. The battery also incorporates quick charging technology.
The 5.5-inch phone otherwise packs hardware that leans towards the higher end of midrange specs. That includes a 1.5GHz processor and a 13-megapixel camera. It’s certainly not as exciting as the G6 promises to be, but it may be a good option for users looking for a long-lasting but affordable device. Other specs include:
- 6.09 x 3.07 x 0.33 inches (154.7 x 78.1 x 8.4mm)
- 5.78 ounces (164g)
- 1.5 GHz eight-core processor
- 13-megapixel rear camera; 5-megapixel front-facing camera
- 2GB or 1.5GB RAM
- 16GB of internal memory with the option to expand up to 2TB
- 4,500mAh non-removable battery
- Android 7.0 Nougat
- The LG X Power 2 will be available in March and launch in Latin America first. Afterwards, it will roll out the United States and countries in Asia and Europe, as well as other regions.
