Kyocera Brigadier expected to feature a sapphire display

Kyocera Brigadier expected to feature a sapphire display
Kyocera Brigadier is an unannounced Android smartphone that was seen back in April, allegedly on its way to Verizon Wireless. While Verizon has yet to confirm the device’s upcoming release, we now have more details about it.

According to Pocket Now, the Brigadier will sport a 4.5-inch sapphire display with 720 x 1,280 pixels. Earlier this month, Kyocera announced that it would soon introduce a Sapphire Shield display, and that’s probably what the Brigadier will feature.

The Kyocera Brigadier isn’t a smartphone for everyone, instead being a rugged device - like many other handsets made by Kyocera. It’s dust- and water-resistant (IP68), reportedly also featuring an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal memory.

Apple’s iPhone 6 is also expected to have a sapphire display, though this one will probably not be made by Kyocera. It remains to be seen if Kyocera manages to launch the Brigadier before the new iPhone. You can see the unannounced Kyocera handset in the slideshow below, alongside a promo video for the Sapphire Shield display.
