LG has announced four new mid-range devices, but only spoke about two in particular. The juiced up LG X Power and the pacey LG X Mach.

Following the successful release of the LG G5, it’s not too surprising to see the Korean company make some new announcement to fill in the mid-range market.

If the name hasn’t given it away already, the X Power is all about power. Not processor power mind you as it is a mid-range device, but battery capacity. The average capacity for flagship devices is around 3,000mAh, The X Power wants to take you further than 24 hours of battery with a massive 4,100mAh battery.

It will have a 5.3-inch D display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. The front snapper is 13-megapixels while the front snapper is 5-megapixels.

What’s impressive about the X Power is the size, despite the massive battery. It only weighs 139g and measures in at 148.9 x 74.9 x 7.9mm.

When it does eventually drain it can be charged via microUSB using fast charging. The X Power will come in Indigo, White, Gold, Titan, Black.

LG X Mach

As for the Mach it’s made for speed, again not referring to the processing power. It is referring to network speeds, by pushing connections with LTE Cat 9 data transfer. The Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 already sport LTE Cat 9, it was strange to see LG only include LTE Cat 6 for the LG G5. Now we know why.

It has a hexa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB internal storage. The display outperforms the X Power due to a larger 5.5-inch quad HD IPS display.

The rear-facing camera is 12.3-megapixels, capable of better low-light pictures than the Max with a larger 1.55μm pixels. Front-facing camera is 8-megapixels.

Another feature over the X Power is a fingerprint sensor on the back with volume keys, a classic LG feature. A decent 3,000mAh battery is included.

The secret devices: LG X Style and LG X Max

Two more devices were announced but were not fully disclosed to TechRadar. They are the LG X Style and LG X Max.

LG X Style has “gracefully curving lines” and apparently a slim body.

LG X Max will be a phablet with the size not being disclosed, but assume north of 5.5-inches with the display. LG said it will be “the ideal phone for consuming multimedia content.” So assume a high-res panel too.
