Verizon calls upon waterproof Hydro ELITE
Verizon announced on Tuesday that the next smartphone to join its roster will be the waterproof Hydro ELITE. Packing a 4.3-inch HD display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and 2100mAh battery, the waterproof handset arrives on August 29 with a $99.99 (after $50-mail-in rebate) price.
Additional details include NFC, 4G LTE, microSD expansion, Kyocera’s Eco Mode, and wireless charging capability.
The Hydro ELITE is optimized to get sound in with Kyocera’s award-winning Smart Sonic Receiver technology. This ceramic actuator replaces the phone’s speaker and transmits sounds as vibrations, making the phone audible even in the noisiest environments.
Those new to Android or who just crave simplicity can choose to use Kyocera’s new optional and easy-to-use “Starter Mode” user interface, with features like a tap-based menu, large fonts, and large intuitive graphics.
