LG’s next flagship phone is coming soon, but while we wait for the official LG G6 announcement, the company has unveiled something a little different: a value-oriented phone that promises extra-long battery life.
The LG X power2 is a smartphone with a 5.5 inch screen and a 4,500 mAh battery that LG says should be good for a full weekend of typical use.
LG also provides a few other scenarios:
- Up to 14 hours of GPS navigation
- Up to 15 hours of continuous video playback
- Up to 18 hours of web surfing
The phone also supports fast charging, with a full charge taking about 2 hours, and one hour of charging time filling the battery to 50 percent capacity (keep in mind, this thing has a massive battery, so it takes a while to top off).
Aside from the battery, there’s really not much to make this phone stand out. It has an “HD display,” which is usually code for 1280 x 720 pixels. It’s powered by an unspecified 1.5 GHz octa-core CPU and available with 1.5GB or 2GB RAM options and 16GB of storage.
There’s a microSD card slot, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera and the phone ships with Android 7.0 Nougat software.
It should be available in Latin America in March before rolling out to other markets including the US, Europe, and Asia later in the year.
