LG is bringing a cheap phone with a huge battery to Xfinity Mobile


Comcast’s new phone service, Xfinity Mobile, has an astonishingly minimal phone lineup. There are a few iPhone models, a couple Samsung Galaxy handsets, and a $ 132 LG phone from 2016, the LG X power. Well, now LG has something new to offer: the LG X Charge, which beats the X Power’s 4,100mAh battery with a 4,500mAh monster.

Otherwise, there’s nothing impressive about this phone. It runs Android 7.0 on an unspecified 1.5GHz octa-core processor, has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and 802.11n Wi-Fi. A 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 screen is your portal to this low-end experience. At least the phone isn’t super thick: 8.4mm is thinner than most of Motorola’s attempts at big battery phones.

Unfortunately, we don’t know the most important stat yet: price. If Xfinity charges much more than $ 200, it would be a crime, but it’s hard to deny that an Android phone with “all weekend” battery life is compelling, no matter how pitiful its specs are.

Disclosure: Comcast is an investor in Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company.
