While LG might not be having much success with its mobile division’s performance, the OEM is still making a great deal of effort. Earlier this year the new X series was launched, with each device in it having some unique selling point to offer extra interest despite the mid-range specs. While most of the products were initially limited largely to Korean customer’s consciousness, a global roll-out has been making progress. Now, another offering in the line-up, the LG X Power has launched in a new market: Canada!
The phone is available at Wind Mobile, Videotron and Koodo Mobile at the moment, however it will be hitting more retailers soon including Bell, SaskTel, TELUS, and Virgin Mobile.
The LG X Power has a 5.3-inch Standard HD LCD display (1280 X 720 pixels), a 1.3GHz Cortex-A53 Quad Core SoC, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front facing camera, a gigantic 4,100mAh battery, and runs Android Marshmallow. It will only be sold in Titan Black coloring for Canadian customers.
As far as pricing goes, Wind is asking $249 full retail price, or $0 on WiNDTab. Videotron has the phone for $0 if customers sign a contract, however full retail price is a more expensive $299.95. Koodo Mobile has the X Power for $0 on-contract and $240 full retail price, making it – as of right now – the cheapest option for those customers who want to buy the phone outright.
The phone will be available on July 14th for those who wish to purchase it from either Bell or TELUS.
While the LG X Power is not likely to impress or interest those who seek top-of-the-line specs and performance, the phone would make an excellent choice for those in the market for a more lower mid-range offering, and with a 4,100mAh battery on board, rest assured that those “meager” specs will ensure a colossal offering of battery performance.
