LG launched its mid-range smartphone X power2 ahead of MWC 2017, and at that point revealed it will start becoming available in March, which did not happen. Now, the South Korean company has made an announcement that the LG X power2 has started shipping this month, beginning in North America followed by Asia, Europe, Latin America and other regions.

For optics, LG X power2 sports a 13-megapixel rear sensor with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with soft-light LED flash for better selfies.
