The LG X power2 was officially introduced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) back in February, promising great battery life thanks to a non-removable Li-Ion unit boasting a capacity of 4,500mAh. The variant launched in Canada is fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 system-on-chip (SoC) housing four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.4GHz, as well as the Adreno 308 graphics chip. The processor works alongside 1.5GB of RAM, and users will have access to 16 GB of onboard memory expandable via a microSD card slot by up to 2TB. Other details include a 13-megapixel main camera with autofocus, 5-megapixel front-facing sensor coupled with an LED flash unit, as well as a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display panel with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels and, amounting to a density of roughly 267 pixels per inch. The LG X power2 is wrapped in a polycarbonate case, bringing its total weight up to 164 grams (5.78 ounces) and runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, modified by LG's proprietary user interface. The device was originally announced in a variety of colors but it appears that only the black variant is currently available for purchase in Canada.
