LG brings the budget-friendly, durable X Venture to AT&T

Posted May 23, 2017

Consider the new LG X Venture.

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. Moreover, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, and has 2 GB of RAM. The smartphone allows further expansion up to 256GB thanks to a dedicated microSD card slot.

The LG X venture carries over a number of popular features from LG's flagship G and V series smartphones such as the rear fingerprint sensor and dual cameras.

The photo of Trudeau in mid-stride, snapped by Scotti, made it seem as though he raced right past the kids without being seen. After appearing to photobomb prom goers in Vancouver on the weekend, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined them for a selfie.

Update: We now know that the battery inside the LG X venture is a 4,100 mAh one. In terms of software, the handset runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with LG's custom skin on top. The carrier will be the exclusive home for the phone in the United States, and it goes on sale starting on Friday, May 26. It's hard to ignore the similarities, too; Not only is the X Venture also an AT&T exclusive, but the X Venture is also equipped with a QuickButton on the side, which is similar to the Galaxy Active's own quick launch hardware button.

Now let's talk about the "adventure" credentials of the X Venture. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer. Double tapping the button can enable the device's Glove Mode, which makes it easier to interact with the display in all weather conditions. According to the tech specs, the device has passed 14 separate MIL-STD 810G tests, a US military standard that address things like intense pressure, extreme exposure, heavy vibration, and harsh weather conditions. Alternatively, you can also choose any other app to open up when the QuickButton is pressed. It'll also launch in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Africa in the weeks to come.
