FCC filing reveals the Kyocera Hydro -  looks to be Sprint bound
Not too long ago, we managed to get some hands-on time with the rugged type Kyocera Hydro – an entry-level spec’d  Android powered smartphone that’s waterproof to a certain extent. Interestingly enough, it’s made its way over to the FCC, where we’re given some interesting insights about its potential carrier availability.

Looking over the FCC filing, the Kyocera Hydro is attached with the familiar C5170 model number, but it seems that tests show that it’s packing a CDMA 1900MHz radio, which alludes to the distinct possibility that it’ll be coming to Sprint’s lineup. Of course, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise considering that they offer plenty of Kyocera-made devices.

Also, the FCC filing confirms that it’ll be packing 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, the main attraction about the handset is the fact that it’s waterproof up to a depth of three feet for up to 30 minutes. As for the rest, its specs sheet make it a fitting entry-level model with its 3.5” HVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and 512MB of RAM,

So far, there isn’t any information known about its pricing, release date, or carrier availability, but then again, it’s looking like Sprint will more than likely be getting this one – time will tell obviously.
