A device made by LG Electronics bearing the model number LG-M322 has been certified by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) earlier this week, as revealed by related product documentation published by the agency on Friday. The handset in question is likely yet another variant of the LG X power2, an upcoming mid-range smartphone that the South Korean consumer electronics manufacturer announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) earlier this year. Two cell phones with similar model numbers received certification from the FCC earlier this week as the LG-M320G and the LG-M320Y, while the LG-M320H was tested and approved by the federal agency in early April.
Even though the Seoul-based tech giant has yet to confirm that the LG-M32X series pertains to the upcoming LG X power2, previous benchmark listings of related devices revealed the same specifications that the company already mentioned at MWC 2017 when announcing its mid-range smartphone. The LG X power2 will sport a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display panel with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels and be powered by the MediaTek MT6750, a 64-bit octa-core system-on-chip (SoC) with eight Cortex-A53 cores that have a maximum operating frequency of 1.5GHz. The device is also said to be powered by 2GB of RAM, in addition to featuring 16GB of storage space that will be expandable by up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The LG X power2 will be equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front sensor, both of which will sport a conventional LED flash. All of that hardware will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery that won't be removable but should be able to last a full day on a single charge with little issues, LG previously said. Finally, the LG X power2 will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, coupled with the company's proprietary launcher.
The South Korean phone maker stated that its upcoming mid-ranger will be hitting the market at some point in June. Given the number of certificates issued by the FCC so far, it seems that the phone's stateside launch is an inevitability, though it remains to be seen whether the device will also make its way to other markets in the future.
