Unlocked version of the rugged LG X Venture now available in the US
The LG X Venture, which was announced back in May, was initially only available at AT&T. Now, you can also get your hands on the unlocked version of the device from Amazon: the retail giant is selling the rugged smartphone for exactly $297.05.
If you’re looking for an affordable handset that can take a beating, the LG X Venture might just be up your alley. It’s shockproof as well as IP68 rated, so it will survive in up to 1.5 meters of water for a period of 30 minutes.
It comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display and is powered by the Snapdragon 435 chipset, featuring 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage, and a 4,100 mAh battery. It arrives equipped with a 16 MP primary camera and a 5 MP selfie snapper.
The LG X Venture also has a “Quick” button on the side that can do a variety of things. These include launching the Outdoor Essentials app that features a barometer, activity counter, compass, exercise tracker, and weather reports, turning on Glove Mode — which allows you to use the device while wearing gloves that are up to 2 mm thick — and more.

The smartphone comes with a 12-month warranty and works on both GSM and CDMA networks. Those of you interested can visit Amazon’s website and place your order via the button below.
