LG X Power is now available in the US via Sprint and Boost Mobile. The smartphone costs $149 (Rs 10,000 approx) and packs a giant 4,100 mAh battery. LG X Power gets a 5.3-inch Full HD (1080p) display and is the first smartphone from Sprint to come with a MediaTek processor. The smartphone is expected to hit the shelves this month.

LG promises 33 hours of talk time with X Power. The smartphone also supports Fast charging (PE+) technology, which LG claims, will let the phone charge at twice the normal speed. LG X Power has an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front shooter. It is powered by  1.8GHz octacore Helio P10 processor coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable via microSD slot. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

LG, in June, had announced four new smartphones in its X series and X Power was one of them. Other smartphones in the line-up include X Mach, X Style and X Max. “Each X series smartphone pairs perfectly with its user by offering uncompromising quality and one truly outstanding feature that speak the user’s personal preference and lifestyle — all at a great value,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and the Mobile Communications Company.

LG recently launched X Screen in India at Rs 12,990. The budget smartphone comes with LG’s second screen, which was first seen in company”s V10. In our review, we said LG X screen is easily one of the best looking smartphones in the price-segment. However, we did not find much use case for the second-screen which LG is touting as the highlight of X Screen.
