The tie-in X Mach smartphone will have a 5.5-inch QHD display while the X Power will have a relatively large 4100 mAh battery pack.

Superhero movies draw large crowds of young adults, so it's no surprise that some manufacturers are jumping in to take advantage of the multi-billion dollar market. The LG X Power and X Mach smartphones are inspired by the heroes from X-Men: Apocalypse in design and presentation.

Those who follow LG will notice right away that the X Power and X Mach share some features with the existing X Cam and X Screen revealed earlier this year. Nonetheless, prices and availability of these superhero smartphones have not yet been announced for Europe.

The LG X Mach will be the more powerful smartphone of the two with its 5.5-inch QHD panel and LTE Cat. 9 connectivity providing speeds of up to 450/50 Mbps downstream/upstream. Interestingly, it will also carry the smaller battery pack compared to the X Power, It's worth noting that many wireless providers in Europe do not yet support Cat. 9 transfer rates as well.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
