LG today unveiled a new affordable smartphone dubbed LG X Power 2 ahead of Mobile World Congress 2017. The device in question is the successor to last year’s LG X Power. The biggest attraction has to be its bigger 4500mAh battery, which is said to charge up to 100% in two hours. Seems impressive on-paper, isn’t it? Furthermore, LG also has a press conference scheduled at MWC for February 27 where it is expected to reveal more details such as price and availability. While it happens sooner or later, let’s take a look at its spec sheet.
The LG X Power 2 has a 5.5-inch HD display with 267 PPI pixel density. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor with no exact chipset details. It apparently comes in two variants — 1.5GB and 2GB RAM. The 16GB of internal memory is expandable up to 2TB using microSD. The Dual-SIM LG X Power 2 bundles Android 7.0 Nougat software running out-of-the-box. It houses a 13MP rear camera with LED flash. Up front is 5MP selfie camera with wide-angle lens and soft LED flash. It also packs support for VoLTE.
The LG X Power 2 comes with its own blue filter called Comfort View, which makes reading e-books easy. The company has also integrated Auto Shot feature that automatically captures selfies when a face is detected. Interestingly, it also allows users take gesture shots by means of hand signals. The device comes in Shiny Gold, Shiny Blue, Shiny Titan, and Black Titan colour options. It is said to go on sale across various markets starting next month.
