At the Mobile World Congress 2017, South Korean tech giant LG was in Barcelona to unveil the LG G6 flagship to the world. But a few days before it took the wraps off the G6, the company had unveiled the budget LG X Power 2.
At the time, the plan was that the LG X Power 2 would be available for purchase somewhere in March, but as you may know by now, the phone is still nowhere to be seen. According to a new report by ETNews, it appears that the X Power 2 has received a new release date for the South Korean market.
Apparently, the LG X Power 2 will be here in early June. However, the phone will first be launched in South Korea before heading to other markets across the globe. Locally, it will be sold for KRW 300,000, which is about $265. At the moment, we can’t tell if this will still be the price when the X Power 2 crosses the Korean borders.
As for the specs, the LG X Power 2 has a roomy 5.5-inch display screen with an HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). Under the hood, there’s a MediaTek MT6750 SoC that has two RAM pairings of either 2GB or an entry level 1.5GB. In terms of storage, the X Power 2 has a small 16GB, but luckily, this can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 256GB.
The back camera of the phone has a 13MP lens while the front camera has a 5MP wide-angle lens for more detailed selfies. For the OS, the LG X Power 2 has the latest Android 7.0 Nougat on board and as usual, the company’s custom skin is running on top.
You might have guessed from the phone’s name that the major selling point of the LG X Power 2 is the battery capacity. The phone has a massive 4500mAh unit on board, promising an impressive 15 hours of watching videos or up to 18 hours of browsing the web when fully charged. Given the massive battery capacity, the X Power 2 has support for fast charging technology where you get up to 50% juice in 60 minutes of charging.
