Kyocera today introduced its latest smartphone, the DuraForce Pro, tapping it with a launch sometime in the next few months. Although it’s not set for any specific carrier just yet, we’d not be surprised if it ends up at either AT&T or Verizon – maybe, both.
Keeping in line with previous Kyocera models, this one is rugged and waterproof, with hardware that’s somewhere in the middle of the road. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Kyocera DuraForce Pro offers up a 5-inch full HD display and 3,240mAh battery that allows for fast and wireless charging.
The main, rear camera is 13-megapixels, but it’s supplemented by a 5-megapixel camera with a 135-degree lens. According to Kyocera, this is the first rugged phone to boast a super wide angle action camera. Around front we find a 5-megapixel shooter for selfies and group shots.
The phone’s IP68 rating means it will withstand dust, vibration, shock, sun, rain, humidity, extreme temperatures, and more. Other features in the DuraForce Pro include a fingerprint reader, NFC connectivity, dual front speakers, a barometer, and microSD expansion card slot.
The DuraForce Pro will be offered in both GSM and CDMA versions ;look for pricing and carrier availability in the coming weeks.
