If you are in the market for a new phone that will easily last an entire weekend on a single charge, runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and won’t make you break the banks, the new LG X Power 2 is worth looking at.
Even before the Mobile World Congress 2017 begins, the South Korean tech giant has decided to take the wraps off the LG X Power 2 smartphone and with it comes a monstrous 4500mAh battery that promises to take you across the entire weekend on a single charge. As you may have guessed, the LG X Power 2 is the successor to the LG X Power and while it may be impressive on the batter life front, this is not all.
The phone, despite being an entry-level handset, comes with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This is perhaps because LG got its hands on the OS early enough, something that enabled it to beat Google to becoming the first OEM to unveil a device powered by this OS out of the box – the LG V20.
In terms of specs, the LG X Power 2 has a roomy 5.5-inch display screen with a resolution of 720p. Under the hood, the handset comes with an octa-core chipset that is clocked at a speed of 1.5GHz and is paired with a RAM of either 1.5GB or 2GB. You get internal storage of 16GB, but it can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 2TB.
For photos, the LG X Power 2 ships with a main shooter of 13MP that is supported by a LED flash for better photos at night. The front has a 5MP that also comes with a LED flash for the same purpose, meaning you get better selfies all the time.
One would be asking how long it takes to fully charge the massive 4500mAh battery on the LG X Power 2. Well, you don’t have to worry about this as the phone comes with high-speed charging technology that gives you 50% power after one hour of charging while a full charge takes two hours. Despite being a low-end phone, you still get LTE and Bluetooth connectivity.
Even though LG has yet to confirm the exact price, the listed specs can confirm that this is a low-end device. It will be available in titan (shiny and black variants), shiny gold as well as shiny blue color variants, with release set for March in Latin America, the U.S., Europe, Asia and other markets across the globe.
