For weeks now, LG has been teasing details about its new flagship phone. Due to be unveiled at LG’s press event at Mobile World Congress on 26th February, the G6 is set to come with a dual-lens camera, waterproofing and some innovative multi-screen smarts.
But that’s not all we’ve got to look forward to. Today LG has announced that it will also be showing us the X Power2. A sequel to its 2016 mid-range phone, the X Power, the X Power2 is set to be even more impressive than its predecessor.
The original X Power housed a phenomenal 4100mAh battery, but LG has announced that the new X Power2 will have an even more powerful 4500mAh battery. To put this into perspective, both are way ahead of the iPhone 7 (2900mAh) and the Galaxy S7’s (3000mAh).
LG claims that the X Power2 can survive the weekend on a single charge. To put it another way, LG estimates the X power2 can watch videos continuously for 15 hours or surf the web for around 18 hours.
But while the battery is clearly the standout feature of the X Power2, LG’s new device has a lot more to recommend it. Not least the 5.5-inch HD display with improved outdoor capability for easy viewing even in strong sunlight. It will run on Android Nougat and will come in a range of metallic shades.
Instagrammers will appreciate the 13-megapixel rear camera that comes with Zero Shutter Lag, so you’re less likely to miss out on capturing split-second magic moments. The X Power2 also has a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera on the front. LG claims this enables users to take selfies of up to eight people without the use of a selfie stick.
LG’s latest contender is set to debut in Latin America, shortly after Mobile World Congress. It’s then scheduled to land in the United States, Asia, Europe and other regions. Pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we’ll let you know the moment we do.
