Although we were already surprised waking up to find out about the first leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, the version of Galaxy S8 with housing optimized for impacts, but then LG surprised us as well by presenting the LG X Venture. The smartphone is distinguished by IP68 certification, but also with an ultra-resistant casing. Here are all the features of LG X Venture.
In recent years, smartphones have evolved significantly and one of the sections where we can see the most changes that are also the most appreciated are the screen and the design, either in the form of casing or the materials used. In this aspect, aluminum and glass are the most used currently, leaving behind in the background the polycarbonate, plastic that had its moment of glory a few years back. However, this tendency ends up making the mobile phones particularly fragile, especially those with glass coverage.

However, manufacturers also think of that niche as market demanded by users who engage in extreme activities and who require ultra-rugged mobile phones. This is the case of LG that, as announced by surprise, will bring to the international market the LG X Venture.
Knock-resistant housing of LG X Venture
While the aesthetic is not its strong point, it is its casing resistant to shock and water. For the second case, it has IP68 certification that allows it to be immersed in water for half an hour at a depth of one and a half meters. As for resistance, the company says it has passed the toughest tests to be certified as fit for the US Army.
