LG’s upcoming flagship, the G6, will be the company’s big news at Mobile World Congress this month, but the South Korean company will also be showing off a few other new mobile devices. The recently-announced (and terribly named) LG X power2 will be one of them.

The phone has a 5.5-inch display and a 4,500 mAh battery which LG says is a combination made in heaven for “power-heavy multimedia user and gaming enthusiasts.” Fully charged, the phone gets 15 hours of continuous video playback or 18 hours of browsing the web, says LG. It runs Android 7.0 Nought and has a fast-charging feature that means you can top it up with 50 percent battery in just two hours. With normal usage, LG says it will last the whole weekend.

It’s got the biggest battery in any LG phone to date, in fact, and is the first model in the company’s new X series. “Each model in the X series incorporates different exclusive features that are usually found only in premium smartphones,” says LG. So, a little like the X-Men? Well, if the X-Men were mid-tier phones rather than super-powered mutants.

Here are the full specs for the X power2, which will be available in Latin American markets first in March, followed by Europe, the US, and Asia. Pricing is not yet available.
