The LG X Power 2 made its Canadian debut at Fido, Bell, Bell MTS, Virgin Mobile, Videotron and Freedom Mobile on June 22nd. 

A representative from Telus’ flanker brand Koodo states that the budget handset will arrive “a day or two later” in comparison to Telus.

The device features a 4,500mAh battery and runs on an octa-core 1.5GHz Cortex-a53 MediaTek MT6750 chipset, which LG says provides the device with up to two full day’s worth of charge or, in more specific terms, sustains 15 hours of video playback.

The handset also stocks a 5.5-inch 720p display and a 13-megapixel rear camera/5-megapixel front camera package, both with flash. The Canadian variant packs 1.5GB RAM with 16GB of internal storage and MicroSD support. The device is shipping with Android Nougat 7.0.

MobileSyrup has reached out Telus to confirm the phone’s pricing.

Update 13/07/17: Updated with comment from Koodo on launch date.
