LG launches the X Venture, an affordable active smartphone

Well, AT&T has something much better to "exclusively" offer its LG-loving subscribers starting this Friday, May 26, and the LG X venture is pretty affordable for what it brings to the table.

The LG X venture also adds extra physical buttons, created to make it easier to launch apps and adjust settings during times when easy access is important.

Additionally, there's 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and 2GB of RAM, but the real killer feature is its battery. Moving on to imaging, the LG X Venture features a 16MP snapper at the back and a 5MP resolution selfie snapper on the front. Better yet, it can charge from 0% to 50% in only 48 minutes thanks to Quick Charge 2.0. In terms of software, the handset runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with LG's custom skin on top.

Earlier in the afternoon, England sealed their spot in the final following a 24-5 victory over Canada . The result also means they qualify automatically for the Sevens World Cup in San Francisco next year.

The LG X venture also features a dedicated "QuickButton", which can be mapped to any app on the phone. Sensors, meanwhile, are vast and include things like gyroscope, accelerometer, and barometer; there's also a QuickButton, fingerprint sensor, FM radio, and Outdoor Essentials.

Now let's talk about the "adventure" credentials of the X Venture. Alternatively, you can also choose any other app to open up when the QuickButton is pressed. This phone was immersed in 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes and passed with flying colors as further claimed by LG. The LG X Venture is an AT&T exclusive for now. The smartphone will be hitting other markets across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East in the coming weeks. Having been designed for consumers who want a tougher than normal phone, LG also made sure that the X Venture was MIL-STD 810G rated, which means consumers will be able to use it without worrying that a drop or two is going to completely destroy the device.
