Featuring a 4,500mAh Battery, LG’s Largest,
for Hours of Smartphone Entertainment and Productivity

Toronto, June 22, 2017 — LG Electronics (LG) is providing more mobile, more often as it introduces the LG X power™ 2 smartphone to Canadians. With the fast charging battery, the smartphone is designed to last through the weekend before it requires recharging.

The LG X power™ 2 is a mass-tier phone targeting heavy-duty users who are in the market for a competitively priced device with a large display, advanced camera features and long battery life. With a long-lasting 4,500mAh battery, the LG X power™ 2 is perfect for users who enjoy watching movies and video content on their phones, playing games or just getting things done. With QuickCharge 2.0, the device offers fast charging to ensure users have the power and time for more activities.

At full charge, it can handle up to 18 hours of talk time, up to 18 hours of video viewing or up to 19 hours of web browsing1. Its generous 5.5-inch HD In-cell Touch display with 1,280 x 720 resolution offers an immersive viewing experience with rich, vibrant colours.

With its front camera and front LED light, users can easily capture the best illuminated selfies, even in low light conditions. LG’s smart UX includes Auto Shot and Gesture Interval Shot, which simplifies taking selfies by triggering the shutter as soon as a face or hand gesture is detected. What’s more, posting a favourite image is just one tap away with Quick Share. On the back, the 13MP primary camera features Zero Shutter Lag for quick, delay-free shots while the soft LED flash lets shooters capture images in low light without the harshness of many other smartphone cameras.

“The LG X power™ 2 was designed for users who want maximum usage from their smartphones between charges and many of the innovative features found on our flagship devices,” said Shelly Walia, Mobile Communications at LG Electronics Canada. “The combination of outstanding battery life, spacious display and exceptional camera capabilities made the first X power™ a popular proposition for users and Canadians can expect the newest iteration of the X power™ series to be even more attractive.”

The LG X power™ 2 will become available at the following carriers as early as June 22, 2017: Fido, TELUS, Koodo Mobile, Bell, Virgin Mobile, Videotron, Freedom and Bell MTS. Check with your other local retailers for availability dates.
