LG has started shipping units of its X Power 2 mid-range smartphone globally. Aptly titled, the X Power 2, it packs in a massive 4,500mAh battery and was first announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) back in February.

While the phone was expected to make its way to markets by June, LG has announced that the units have already started shipping. The first markets to receive the mid-range smartphone will be North America, followed by Asia, Europe, Latin America and the other regions.

The smartphone is expected to be priced at KRW 300,000 or $265 (Rs 18,000 approximately) and packs in a 5.5-inch HD display on the front.

Inside, owners will get a 1.5 GHz octa-core chipset with 1.5 GB and 2 GB RAM variants, both of which pack in 16 GB of internal storage. While that may seem a bit too little, the smartphone also offers storage expansion with support for micro SD cards of up to 2 TB in size.

Coming to the cameras, the device offers a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front-facing unit that includes a soft LED flash for selfies.

All of the above is powered by a 4,500 mAh battery that also supports fast charging. LG claims that the battery can go from 0 charge to 50 percent charge in an hour and 100 percent in two hours.

The phone will be available in Black Titan, Shiny Gold, Shiny Blue and Shiny Titan colours.
