LG X Venture is a rugged phone that won't hurt your wallet

LG today introduced an exciting new mid-range Android smartphone that joins its X line, dubbed the X Venture.

The X venture is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor and comes with 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of memory and a microSD slot for expandable storage.

The X Venture has physical buttons, so it can be more easily used with gloves, and a non-slip back texture reminiscent of the V10.

Sunny skies, hot temperatures expected through the midweek
On Tuesday , the possibility of a shower or two exists, with a high in the mid-60s. There's a chance of precipitation in the evening, with rain likely after midnight.

The LG X Venture sports a 5.2-inch LCD display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution, giving it a pixel density of 424 pixels per inch. In terms of software, the handset runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with LG's custom skin on top.

Sad to see the big-battery, budget-friendly LG X power2 taking so long to even hit the OEM's domestic shops, not to mention how it's still all quiet on the United States carrier front? There's the QuickButton, too, on the left side of the X Venture.

Now let's talk about the "adventure" credentials of the X Venture. As the name suggests, it offers a number of features designed for people who want to use the phone in the great outdoors, including a barometer, a compass, and counters to record steps, distance and calories burned. If you press the QuickButton for slightly longer than usual, it will enable the Glove Mode, letting you interact with the display even when you have gloves on. The LG X Venture, among other things, is MIL-STD 810G tested and includes things like a waterproof design able to handle submersion in up to 1.5m of water for up to half an hour at a time. 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. It'll also launch in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Africa in the weeks to come.
