Close on the heels of MWC 2017, LG has unveiled a new smartphone called the X Power2. The device comes backed by a 4,500mAh battery pack which is rated to last for 15 hours of video playback and 18 hours of web surfing. LG is yet to announce the pricing but it has confirmed that the sales will begin in March and the X Power2 will be sold across Latin America, US, Europe, and other markets.
The LG X Power2 comes equipped with a 5.5-inch HD display. In order to restrict the blue light emitted from the display, LG has come up with a feature called Comfort View. This mode is further expected to better the reading experience, especially in low light and at night. Powering the device is a 1.5GHz octa-core SoC which will either be paired with a 1.5GB RAM or a 2GB RAM. On the storage front, the device will offer 16GB of expandable storage (microSD up to 2TB).
Camera setup on the X Power2 includes 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel wide-angle front sensor along with auto shot and gesture shot feature. The LG X Power2 will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and will be offered in Black Titan, Shiny Titan, Shiny Gold and Shiny Blue. The fast charging feature is expected to charge the 4,500mAh battery from 0-100 percent in two hours.
LG is also expected to launch the LG G6 at the upcoming MWC with a bezel-less 5.7-inch QHD+ display set at an aspect ratio of 18:9. The LG G6 will also debut with the new UX 6.0 (optimized for bigger displays) and Improved Quad DAC Chip for Superior Audio Experience. It will be interesting to see how LG G6 will fare for the company especially since the G5 was not received well and suffered from low sales.
