With the X Venture LG shows a smartphone, which is provided with a strong battery, robust frame, IP68 sealing and barometer for outdoor use. The hardware equipment is installed with a Snapdragon-435-SoC in the lower segment.
Robust and sealed
The IP68 certification describes LG with a permanent submerge in a water depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. Some features of resistance are also tested according to the military standard MIL-STD 810G. The smartphone is supposed to exceed extreme temperatures. The certification defines these with temperatures between -22 and 55 degrees Celsius.
The impact strength should also be given in the sense of the standard, whereby LG does not define this more precisely. The CAT S50, certified with MIL-STD 810G, has surpassed several falls from a drop of two meters with only superficial scratches in the ComputerBase test. Whether LG’s offshoot this just as easily einsteckt is however questionable.
Low-end hardware with large battery
The LG X Venture offers an eight-core Snapdragon-435, two gigabytes of memory and 32 gigabytes of flash memory, which can be extended using a microSD memory card. The 5.2-inch display dissolves in Full HD and can be operated with gloves. Besides common menu buttons at the bottom of the screen, the X Venture has a fingerprint sensor as well as freely configurable quick access buttons on the left side of the housing. The back is structured for increased grip.
The rechargeable battery with a nominal charge of 4,100 mAh is designed to allow up to 24 hours of talk time. The LG X Venture is initially available in North America via the AT & T provider for a two-year monthly payment of US $ 11 and is expected to be available soon in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and Latin America. LG would like to announce price recommendations separately for the individual markets.
