LG X power2 (LG M320) Hits GFXBench With Android Nougat

An LG Electronics-made device bearing the model number LG M320 that's believed to be the upcoming LG X power2 appeared in the database of popular mobile benchmarking tool GFXBench. Most of the details disclosed by the listing correspond to the technical specifications of LG's upcoming entry-level smartphone whose model number was already certified by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Wi-Fi Alliance (WFA) on numerous occasions, and though GFXBench claims that smartphone sports a 5.3-inch display panel, it will actually ship with a 5.5-inch screen, as the South Korean tech giant previously confirmed. The LG X power2 is set to be powered by the MediaTek MT6750 system-on-chip (SoC), a 64-bit piece of silicon with eight cores clocked at 1.5GHz and the Mali T860 TM2 GPU. The entry-level SoC is supported with 2GB of RAM, and the device also boasts 32GB of internal flash memory, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front one, the listing indicates.

The display panel of the LG X power2 was previously said to support 1280 x 720 resolution, and GFXBench confirms as much, adding that the handset was running Android 7.0 Nougat reskinned with LG's proprietary mobile software suite at the time of its testing. The Seoul-based consumer electronics manufacturer made no mention of NFC support while announcing the LG X power2 earlier this year, and its benchmark results now confirm that the smartphone isn't equipped with an NFC adapter. Likewise, it remains to be seen whether LG opts to release a dual-SIM variant of the LG X power2, but none of the models that were tested and certified until now support two SIM cards, including the one that was recently listed by GFXBench.

The South Korean original equipment manufacturer (OEM) originally introduced the LG X power2 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) earlier this year, suggesting that the smartphone will compete in the entry-level price segment once it's released in June. The company has yet to disclose specific countries in which it's planning to launch the device but given the number of FCC and WFA-issued certificates detailing some variant of the handset, its stateside release is likely only a matter of time.
