The LG X venture is a rugged smartphone exclusive to AT&T

LG X venture Rugged Smartphone With IP68 Certification MIL-STD 810G Rating Launched

In that case, the LG X Venture might be the phone for you. The LG X Venture landing page will go live in the U.S from today and will launch in both black and brown color options, and it'll be available from AT&T, though at the moment it's not yet available for purchase as the phone hasn't actually launched. According to LG, the roomy 4,100 mAh battery lasts up to 24 hours between charges. The X Venture is powered by a low-end Snapdragon 435 processor and 2GB of RAM, though it should be enough for traversing the trails and slogging through mud pits-if that's your thing. The smartphone allows further expansion up to 256GB thanks to a dedicated microSD card slot. In terms of software, the handset runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with LG's custom skin on top. LG also lumped a handful of different features together into one single application called Outdoor Essentials that are meant to help during outdoor activities if needed.

This phone is water and dust resistance with IP68 certification and has passed 14 different MIL-STD 810G tests designed for the US military as claimed by LG. It has built in quick access to apps and tools most useful to adventure seekers, including weather, barometer, LG Health, compass, flashlight, and stopwatch, as well as a handy Glove Mode that lets you operate the screen when your fingers are covered. Alternatively, you can also choose any other app to open up when the QuickButton is pressed. The LG X Venture is an AT&T exclusive for now. Payment plans are available starting at US$11 per month for 30 months, which makes it significantly more budget-friendly than most of its less rugged counterparts. The smartphone will be hitting other markets across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East in the coming weeks.
