LG has announced it will start selling the LG X Power 2 in the United States this month, but official pricing has yet to be announced. The upcoming handset features a massive 4,500 mAh battery, which LG says is able to last “an entire weekend.”

The LG X Power 2’s standout feature is that massive battery, which LG says can provide 26 hours of talk time, 18 hours of video playback and 19 hours of browsing. The handset itself seems to be catering to users who consume a lot of media as it also comes with a decent 5.5-inch HD 720p display.

“The LG X Power 2 was designed to meet the demands of users who want maximum usage from their smartphones between charges and many of the advanced features found on our flagship devices,” LG Electronics Mobile President Juno Cho said. “The combination of outstanding battery life, spacious display and exceptional camera capabilities made the first X Power a popular proposition for millions, and we expect the newest iteration of the X Power series to be even more attractive.”


The LG X Power 2 is powered by a MediaTeck MT6750 chipset and comes with 1.5GB or 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. Storage can also be expanded up to 256GB with a microSD card.

As for cameras, the LG X Power 2 features a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter and a 5MP front-facing camera. Each of the cameras is equipped with its own LED flash. The 13MP camera also features Zero Shutter Lag and soft LED flash while the 5MP shooter comes with Auto Shot and Gesture Interval Shot camera features, Slash Gear reported.

Overall, the handset is primarily being aimed to those who want a long-lasting battery. The LG X Power 2 won’t be able to deliver flagship-like performance, but its entry-level/mid-range specs should be enough for watching videos and playing light games.

The LG X Power 2 will also ship with Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box along with LG’s custom user interface running on top. It will be available in black titan, shiny titan, shiny gold and shiny blue color options.

The LG X Power 2 will first hit the U.S. this month, but LG hasn’t provided an exact release date or pricing, saying it “will be announced locally in each market. The LG X Power 2 currently sells for around $260 in South Korea. It might be a little cheaper in the U.S. as phones in South Korea tend to be more expensive, Phone Arena said.

LG said the X Power 2 will also arrive in Asia, Europe, Latin America and other markets. However, the handset might arrive in some territories carrying a different name. The handset was previously rumored to arrive in the U.S. in “early June.”
