Going on an adventure? Consider the new LG X Venture. The name says it all.
An exclusive for AT&T was announced this morning by LG, and it’s a sturdy phone with a massive battery. The X Venture, according to LG, is “designed for active users” who have “on-the-go lifestyles.” That’s a position we’ve heard from many companies before, but LG is doing its part in making this phone different. It has a metal frame and a textured back to keep the gripping strong and the body intact in the event of a fall.
Furthermore, you can immerse this phone in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes and it’ll survive without any damage. The body as a whole passed a number of MIL-STD 810G tests. So the X Venture is ready for knocks, drops, spills, and pretty much everything imaginable.
To show it’s all-in on the active lifestyle focus, LG included an app called Outdoor Essentials that does exactly what you’d expect. Outdoor Essentials offers access to a barometer, compass, activity counter, exercise tracker, weather reporter, and flashlight. There’s the QuickButton, too, on the left side of the X Venture. It allows users to short-press for Outdoor Essentials, long-press for settings, and double-press for Glove Mode. If you want, you can assign this button to launch an app of your choice.
The X Venture features a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) LCD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 435, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, a 4100mAh battery, and Android 7.0 Nougat sitting behind LG’s in-house software overlay.
When it becomes available exclusively through AT&T on May 26, the LG X Venture will be priced at $11 per month for 30 months.
