LG X power, LG’s latest phone release, is now available at Sprint’s prepaid line Boost. Boost Mobile, the wireless service provider is a partner of Telstra in Australia, while in the United States, the mobile phone service provider is a Sprint Corporation subsidiary.
The unit boasts of a 4,100 mAh battery that claims to offer up to 33 talk hours. If that long a battery life is not enough, you can rely on the unit’s quick charging, thanks to the fast-charge support of the microUSB port. The boost version comes with a chipset different from what’s inside the international model. In the Boost handset is the Helio P10 or MT6755, replacing the MediaTek MT6735 in the international units. It also has 1.8 GHz octacore Cortex-A53 processor which is an upgrade to the vanilla X power’s 1.3 GHz quad-core.
The Boost LG X power handset has a 5.3-inch, 720p display with an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, ideal for selfies. Furthermore, it operates in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, has 2GB RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, plus LTE support. And did we mention that the phone consists of most features the LG UX 5.0 has.
It may not seem like a big hit, but specs-wise, the LG X power is surprisingly bigger compared to most mid-range cellphones in the market.
The latest LG phone was released in the US on September after being announced last May. The Sprint handset, on the other hand, will be available on September 23, which is priced at $129.99 (tax excluded) if without contract, but can be grabbed in installment. The unit is also available with 0% downpayment and a 24-month locked-in period with $9 monthly payments.
The phone, with its medium-range features and affordable price tag seems promising in terms of sales. LG X Power was released June 2016.
