Case in point: LG Electronics today made the LG X Power 2 (click for complete specs) official, which you’d be forgiven for not knowing about considering it has just two things going for it: Android 7.0 Nougat and a huge (read: long-lasting) battery.
This time around, the battery capacity is 4,500mAh compared to last year’s 4,100mAh. A decent bump, though the rest of the handset, as with its predecessor, still leaves much to be desired.

LG claims the X Power 2 will last users “an entire weekend without recharging,” and the phone only needs two hours to charge to 100 percent. The charging time, also according to the Korean company, is “twice as fast as most phones.” Sure (insert sarcastic winking emoji). If the phone in question is old and has a big battery, sure, maybe it would take four long hours to get it to full strength.

The LG X Power 2’s other specs are not as impressive as its battery capacity. There’s a 5.5-inch, 720p touchscreen; a 1.5GHz octa-core processor with LTE connectivity; 1.5GB or 2GB of RAM, depending on the market; 16GB of expandable storage; and 13- and 5-megapixel primary and selfie cameras.
The smartphone will go on sale in Latin America sometime in March. It is expected to launch in Asia, Europe, and the United States soon thereafter. Pricing hasn’t been announced, though the X Power sold for P8,490 (around $169) at launch, so expect the sequel to be priced similarly at under P9,000 (roughly $179).
