With the LG G6 being LG’s current flagship of 2017, it also means that for now it is one of LG’s more expensive handsets. Now not everyone sees the need to own a flagship nor does everyone have the budget for one either, so if you’re in the market for a new smartphone that won’t break the bank, LG has you covered with the recently announced LG X Venture.


Announced for AT&T’s network, the LG X Venture is something of a low to mid-range handset, although one of the handset’s highlights is the fact that it will come with rugged features aimed at users who plan to use the phone in outdoors environments that might otherwise damage or break more traditional handsets.

We’re talking about how the phone can work while submerged in water up to a depth of 1.5m for 30 minutes, how it is rated IP68 for water and dust protection, and how it will also come equipped with a variety of sensors such as a barometer, a compass, counters for distance and calories, and there is even a glove mode that lets the phone operate even when gloves are worn.

In terms of specs, the LG X Venture will feature a 5.2-inch display and under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor can be found with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage, a 4,100mAh battery, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, Android Nougat out of the box, and the phone will be sold at $11 a month over the course of 30 months.
