While everyone is anxious for the LG G6 launch, the company quietly introduces a new smartphone to its X-series. The LG X power2 is meant to last for about 18 hours. LG targets this phone to the folks who love consuming multimedia on the move. The X power2 will be shown at the LG booth at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.
LG introduced the X-series of smartphones with an objective to include at least one flagship-grade features in it. Also, the X-series phones fall mostly between budget and lower mid-range.
The LG X power2 focuses primarily on the battery life aspect with its 4,500 mAh battery. So you can enjoy about 15 hours of videos and use navigation in GPS for about 14 hours and surf the web for 18 hours. Of course, those are lab tested estimates and the actual hours may vary depending on multiple factors.
The X power2 sports a 5.5-inch in-cell Touch display with HD resolution. LG adds a Comfort View mode that reduces blue light filter and turns the screen into a night mode. That allows reading ebooks and webcomics more comfortable for extended hours.
The X power2 house an octa-core chipset and we’re yet to learn more details about it. LG packs 1.5GB or 2GB of RAM, which will be market dependent. By default, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat with LG UX layered on top of it.

The front-facing 5-megapixel camera makes the best of the soft LED flash to take better selfies in the dark. Its wide-angle lens will ensure your friends don’t get cropped out of those selfies. Also, the Auto Shot captures the photo once the face is detected.
The 13-megapixel rear camera comes with Zero Shutter Lag to capture images quickly and not miss the moment. The 4,500 mAh battery comes with fast charging and promises 50 percent charge in two hours. Obviously, that’s the most you can expect in a budget device.
