LG X500 is the name of the newly launched smartphone from the Korean giant LG. This phone can be considered a sequel to the previous X series phone, the LG X 400. Incidentally, that phone was launched this year only. The new phone has been launched and the sales will begin in South Korea on June 9.
The unique feature of the LG X500 is its battery, 4500mAH, which is quite large by any standards and the company has mentioned that a user can keep playing video games on it for 20 hours, without worrying about the battery running out of charge. In fact, even if it runs out, the recharge, from 0 to 50% can be done in just an hour.
The new LG X500 has a 5.5-inch 1280x720p resolution. The Mediatek MT6750 SoC has been chosen as the processor and it offers a clocking speed of a decent 1.5GHz.
The OS is Android Nougat 7.0, which is also good considering that only a few launches this year have opted to incorporate this new OS. One must hasten to add that even the next version, Android O is in an advanced stage of development and many new flagships in the later part of the year may be released with it.
To complete the specs, the RAM on the LG X500 is 2GB and the internal storage 32GB. A micro SD card slot is also there and the provision to expand the overall storage to a massive 2TB!
In the imaging department, there is a 13MP camera and the front sensor for selfies is 5MP. Both cameras come with the support of LED flashes. The front camera has been fitted with a wide-angle lens to facilitate group selfies and the flash is soft in tone. The LG X500 is endowed with all the connectivity options including 4G VoLTE and the 3.5mm audio output jack is also in place.
As already discussed, the highlight of this phone is the 4500mAh battery. LG has taken a leap from the previous version, the X400 which sported just a 2800mAh battery. The company might have done a study and found that there is the customer demand for phones that can last longer while they are engaged in playing their favorite games.
The price for this new LG phone in South Korea is 319, 000 won which means roughly Rs 18, 300.
It is not yet known when the phone will be made available in markets outside South Korea.
