As an appetizer waiting for the presentation of the LG G6, LG unveiled on Friday another smartphone of its 2017 range. The LG X Power 2, of its small name, essentially based on an argument: autonomy.

The LG X Power 2 – the successor to the LG X Power – sports a 5.5-inch screen.

The IPS-based panel displays an HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, resulting in a low resolution of 267 dpi. At the maneuver, we find Android Nougat.

The OS is powered by an unknown SoC, but is known to have 8 cores and is capable of 1.5 GHz (probably MediaTek). RAM is available in 1.5 and 2 GB. As for the internal memory, it is announced with a unique capacity of 16 GB, knowing that a microSD port is present.

In terms of shooting, LG chose to bet on a classic 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera on the front. Connectivity, in parallel, goes through 4G, Wi-Fi b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. It is on the side of the battery, however, that hides the star in the middle of these components.

Indeed, the accumulator boasts an impressive capacity of 4,500 mAh, which should allow the terminal to hold 15 hours away from the video playback, 14 hours of GPS navigation and 18 hours on the Web. An appreciable detail, the said accumulator allows fast recharging – it is a question of 50% charge in one hour.

It does not make the machine too big, which displays measurements of 154.7 x 78.1 x 8.4 mm for 164 grams on the scale.

Present at the Mobile World Congress, the LG X Power2 is expected to enter the South American stalls in March, before joining key markets in North America, Europe, and Asia in the wake. No price ranges were specified.
