LG X venture headed to AT&T on May 26

Posted May 23, 2017

South Korean giant LG has launched LG X venture smartphone which boasts of maximum durability, high-capacity battery and outdoor activity features and is ideally suitable for every occasion and adventure.

Namely, an nearly comparable "heavy-duty, high-capacity" 4,100mAh cell to the 4,500mAh packed by the worldwide X power2, but also a "stylishly resilient" design and overall rather great specs. It'll be available exclusively at AT&T beginning May 26.

LG has a phone for adventurers who don't want to spend a fortune on their phones. That's a position we've heard from many companies before, but LG is doing its part in making this phone different. The handset will be good in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. The body as a whole passed a number of MIL-STD 810G tests.

Bear Gryll-types and the accident prone: if the Galaxy Active is too much for you, LG's offering a cheaper alternative.

AT&T workers on strike across the country
We're proud to be a union-friendly employer, with more full-time, union-represented employees than any company in America. Union workers at the AT&T call center in Davenport have joined thousands of fellow employees in a nationwide strike.

The device also has a dedicated button on the side which launches its Outdoor Essentials app. QuickButton works differently depending on how it's pressed - short press for Outdoor Essentials, long press for settings and double press to toggle Glove Mode to recognize screen taps and swipes with gloved fingers.

Coming to AT&T in the U.S. starting May 26, and to Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America in the weeks that follow, this phone looks to bring solid performance and protection both against theft with its fingerprint sensor and against the elements with its IP68 rating.

Other features include a 16-megapixel rear camera with a standard-angle lens, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with a wide-angle lens, as well as a 4,100mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat, and support for 4G LTE networks.
